Whenever there’s rust accumulating on the exterior of your faucet, it’s likely on the interior as well. There’s no way to stop the rusting once it has started, so it’s likely you’ll need to replace the fixture before it begins to impact the quality of the water your family consumes.
An O-Ring keeps the seal on your faucet airtight. If a leak develops near the handle, it likely means that your O-Ring has worn out and needs replaced.
If your faucet has an aerator at the opening, the tiny holes can get clogged with dirt and debris and inhibit the flow of water. Clean out the aerator. If that does not fix the problem, consult with a plumbing expert to investigate further.
Over time sediment buildup can lead to severe corrosion. A corroded connection or valve seat are leading contributors to faucet leaks. Regular cleaning of sediment buildup can help you prolong the life of your fixtures.
Outlet and inlet seals play a vital part in controlling water flow. Over time, sediment buildup can cause these seals to break down. If you have a leaky faucet, make sure you clean all parts and seals of sediment that has accumulated. If there are any broken or worn out seals, they can often be replaced to restore normal fixture performance.
If your faucet is making strange whistling or screaming like noises it may signify a loose or broken washer. Check your washers, tighten connections, if that doesn’t resolve the issue call an expert to properly diagnose the problem.
More modern faucets sometimes come with a retractable spray hose. If the hose begins to leak, or stops functioning all together, take it apart and inspect for possible buildup. Soaking it in vinegar for a few hours can help loosen and remove mineral deposits and lime. If after reinstallation, the sprayer isn’t working a replacement may be necessary.
