Faucet issues are common and should be fixed quickly before they lead to larger problems. Even the smallest faucet drip can waste a considerable amount of water and money. A kitchen or bathroom faucet that drips only once per minute could waste up to 20 gallons of water in a single day! Not only will leaving leaking faucets to consistently drip waste more and more water, but the leak itself will probably get worse over time. That means wasting more water and money every day.
Faucets generally drip, leak, or stop working because their internal components break down or wear out. Kitchen and bathroom faucets have different kinds of compression valves that range from ball or cartridge to compression and dip. Each of these faucet valves requires a different technique of repair, replacement and maintenance.
The only way to reliably repair faucet issues is to simply replace worn or broken components. Ordinary faucets consist of a valve, a handle and a spout. Although they look simple, they are in fact highly specialized, and the more artistic and modern they are, the more complex the faucet’s functioning. This essentially means that your everyday handyman or homeowner may have difficulties fixing them without spoiling them first.

Low Water Pressure: Tiny holes in a tap can get clogged with dirt and mineral buildup and inhibit the flow of water. Plumbing blockages and leaking pipes can also cause low water pressure. If your pipes are working properly, it is more than likely the constrictor valve inside your faucet is damaged.
Unwarranted Faucet Noise: Your home faucet may create a whistling like sound signalling a problem. A loose washer is often the cause, but if tightening the washer or replacing it with the right size solve the problem there could be other issues within the pipes. If replacing the washer does not resolve the issue you will want to hire a professional plumber to further investigate the root of the problem.
Minimal To No Water Coming Out of The Faucet: Faucets contain several valves or chambers depending on the style and age of your fixture, and are prone to sediment buildup most likely caused by hard water. In order to address no water coming out of the faucet, check to see if the shut-off valve is open and if there’s still no water coming out you will have to take the faucet apart and clean each chamber.
General Wear and Tear: If rust is forming from on the exterior of your faucet’s, it has more than likely formed on the inside as well. Rust can affect the quality of your tap water, and it is not recommended to drink water from a rusty faucet.
Dripping Faucet: Dripping faucets are commonly caused by a dislodged or torn washer. These silicon-based seals can become stiff and corroded over time, and damaged washers will initially create a tiny trickle of water. It’s best to replace them immediately before the water pressure destroys them completely.
Installation Issues: Problems in the installation process can cause leaks due to loose parts, and you can damage or lose the small parts of the unit which may require buying a new set. The simplest solution is to have a certified plumber reinstall the faucet to ensure it is installed properly.
