Several factors can cause your faucet to leak, no matter where its located in your home. It’s important to understand what is causing the leak before attempting to fix or replace the faucet.
- Determine what is causing the leak
- Quickly disassemble the faucet
- Supply any needed replacement parts
- Reassemble the faucet to get you back in business
- When the plumber is repairing the faulty valve or leaky faucet, you will have to turn off the water.
