It can be difficult to know where to turn to fix a leaking faucet at home. These are some ways to fix a leaking faucet in your home.
What tools will I need?
To fix your faucet, you will need an adjustable wrench, Cwrench, and a Phillips/flat head screwdriver. WD-40 and replacement washers are also needed.
How do you proceed?
- First, ensure you don’t turn off the water supply. This could cause a lot of damage.
- Next, use the wrench to loosen the packing nuts. You might need to pry it off or unscrew it if it doesn’t.
- Next, inspect the O-ring/washer within the valve seat. These are the most likely source of the leak.
You can call Pershing Plumbing if you are unsure if you can follow the above steps or if your faucet is still leaking.
