Outdoor Faucet Repair
Most water leaks are very subtle — especially when they involve an outdoor faucet. Unless you’re regularly in your yard, you may not notice until it’s too late. It may not seem as urgent a matter as an indoor leak, but outdoor leaks can lead to serious water damage.
If you are already experiencing an outdoor faucet leak, you need professional plumbing services right away! Call Frymire Home Services at 469-346-4999 for leak inspections and repairs throughout the Dallas area.
Risks of an Outdoor Leak in Your Dallas, TX Home
A leaky outdoor faucet can waste gallons of water if not repaired and cost you unnecessarily high water bills. In fact, a sudden spike in your water bill can be a sign that something is amiss.
An outdoor leak can also create puddles or damp patches around the foundation of your home. If not dealt with, this soggy soil could lead to ground expansion that can push a water pipe against the foundation and create a slab leak.
Or you may have a vibrating or squeaky faucet that’s just plain annoying to you and your neighbors. Either way, it’s important to contact service professionals as soon as you notice a problem.
Common Causes for Outdoor Faucet Issues
If you notice problems with your outdoor faucet, you need to take a closer look to get to the bottom of the issue. Some common issues can lead to faucet problems, which include:
- Loose packing nuts – The packing nut is located right underneath the handle. It keeps the valve inside the faucet from leaking. It can get loose, which will cause drips. Tightening this up will fix the problem.
- Worn-out washers – Washers anywhere in the spigot assembly of your outdoor faucet can wear out, and that can lead to leaks or other problems.
- Frost damage – Frost can damage your outdoor faucet and leave you with leaks or a handle that won’t turn.
- Frozen pipes – If the water inside your outdoor faucet freezes, it will expand, and that will damage the system.
No matter the cause, we can help you address these common problems with outdoor faucets. Contact us online to schedule service.
Preventative Maintenance for Outdoor Faucet Issues
One of the best ways to prevent problems with your outdoor faucet is with preventive maintenance. Our team can help you make the right plan to reduce wear and tear on your outdoor faucet so it will not break down. One of the most important steps to take is to prepare your faucets for winter weather.
Outdoor faucets are some of the quickest to freeze in the winter. The best way to protect them is to shut off water to your outdoor faucets, then drain them thoroughly. This will prevent damage from freezing and expanding water. You can also cover your outdoor faucet with an insulated cover.
