How to Deal With Slow-Clearing Drains


Your Philadelphia Faucet Repair Specialists 

A dripping faucet is more than just a nuisance that keeps you awake at night – it’s a sign that something might be amiss with your plumbing system. At Reliable Plumbing & Drain Cleaning, we believe in empowering our clients with knowledge so that they can understand the underlying issues that might be causing the drip. Here’s an in-depth look at some common reasons why your faucets might be dripping.

Worn-Out Washer or O-Ring

Inside every faucet, there are small rubber components called washers and O-rings. Over time, these parts can wear out, causing water to leak through. Replacing a worn washer or O-ring might seem like a simple task, but it can be challenging without the right tools or expertise. Our plumbers can identify and replace these components, ensuring a perfect fit and a leak-free faucet.

Corroded Valve Seat

The valve seat serves as a connection between the faucet and the spout, and corrosion here can lead to leakage. Accumulation of water sediments can cause the valve seat to corrode, creating a pathway for water to escape. Regular cleaning and timely intervention by our professionals at Reliable Plumbing & Drain Cleaning can prevent this issue and prolong the life of your faucets.

Improper Installation

A faucet that’s not installed correctly can cause continuous dripping or leaks. Whether it’s a misalignment or incorrect washer size, these mistakes can lead to leaks that worsen over time. If you’ve recently installed a new faucet and noticed a drip, it’s best to contact our experienced plumbers who can assess and correct the installation, ensuring everything is in perfect working order.

High Water Pressure

Sometimes, the problem isn’t with the faucet itself but with the water pressure in your plumbing system. Excessive pressure can cause water to leak through the faucet, especially during off-peak hours when the pressure may spike. Our team can examine your plumbing system, regulate the water pressure, and stop the annoying drip.

Broken Plumbing Parts

Hidden cracks in the pipes or other plumbing parts can also cause your faucet to drip. These issues can be challenging to diagnose without professional assistance. Reliable Plumbing & Drain Cleaning utilizes advanced tools and techniques to pinpoint the exact location of the problem, ensuring that the repair is accurate and efficient.
