Fix that Leaky Faucet and Save Money

Is that leaky kitchen faucet stealing from you? No one wants to waste money, but when you allow leaky tap to continue, that’s exactly what you’re doing—wasting money.

You might not think the annoying drip coming from your bathroom faucet is a big deal, and you’re not alone. Many people ignore these drips. However did you know that when your home has a faucet that drips 10 times per minute that you’re wasting as much as 2 gallons of water a day [source: U.S. Geological Survey’s drip calculator]? Would you toss out two full gallons of milk each day?

At My Hayward Plumber Hero, we don’t want you to pay more than you need to for water. That’s why it’s important to us to help you fix leaky faucets.

Below are some of the most common faucet leaks our plumbers in Hayward fix:

Worn Out Washers, Gaskets, or Valve Assembly

Considering how often the faucets in your home get used each day, it’s no wonder that they break down after a while. The good news is that most of the time replacing these parts fixes the problem. To make sure you buy the right parts, you need to know the type of faucet you have such as ball or cartridge. If you’re not sure what your faucet’s type is, take a picture of it and show the person at the plumbing supply store.

Or, better yet, save yourself the hassle and call us. We have parts for all faucets styles in our fully-stocked vehicles. We can get your faucet fixed, ASAP!

Clogged Faucet Aerator

A clogged faucet aerator can cause drips too. It’s not unusual for aerators to become clogged, especially in homes that have hard water. To clear particles from the aerator and get it clean, unscrew it from the end of the tap.

Run the aerator under the water. For difficult to clean hard water stains, spray it with a limescale remover. Then rinse it and replace it. Did this work?

For persistent leaks, it’s always a good idea to call for professional plumbing service in Hayward. Why waste your day dealing with an aggravating leaking faucet? We evaluate the situation and make suggestions for repairs. If the leaky faucet isn’t repairable, we can help you pick out a new faucet.
