Fix leaky bathroom

The rhythmic drip, drip, drip of a leaky tap can be enough to drive normally mild mannered people to distraction. If one is willing to put in some time and effort, he or she can learn how to fix a leaky bathroom faucet, but it may be best to call in a professional. At Pratt Plumbing, we can give you helpful plumbing advice, or come to your home to repair the problem quickly and efficiently.

Simplifying the Repair Process

While the steps for how to fix a leaky bathroom faucet can be compressed to a manageable list, successfully performing the actual job can be quite complicated. If you have the right tools and are ready to devote some time into doing the job properly, these steps may be useful:

1. Turn off the water – Any plumbing repair job should start with this important step, otherwise, you will have more than just a little leak.
2. Take off decorative handles – Most decorative knobs and handles can be pulled straight off, if necessary, with the help of a screwdriver or small prying tool.
3. Remove the stem – Once the decorative handles are removed, a nut should be exposed. After this has been twisted off, the stem can also be removed.
4. Inspect/replace the washer or O-ring – This small device is often the cause of leaks
5. Put everything back together – Replace the parts and test to see if there is still a leak.

We have recently completed a remodel of an 80 year old house and we used Pratt Plumbing for all of the plumbing renovation. Pratt was great in all respects: their ideas, their work, their timeliness, their prompt attention to details and follow through all were and continue to be of the highest caliber. Their invoices are reasonable and we would recommend Pratt Plumbing to anyone in need of minor or major plumbing work.
