Nothing captures how maddening plumbing problems can get more than the sound of a leaky faucet echoing through your home. On paper, fixing it should be simple. But too many homeowners have learned the hard way, these issues can be tricky to get under control. If you need faucet repair in the Jupiter, FL area, call the professionals at Home Choice Plumbing today.
Faucet issues are often a repair that gets pushed off because it’s not as inconvenient as an overflowing toilet or clogged sink. However, the small spout that controls your sink and tub causes harmful issues if it’s left leaky. This includes everything from mold and mildew growing inside your faucet and contaminating your water, to a high water bill from wasted water.
How Do You Know You Need Faucet Repair?
Leaky faucet repair is the most common service related to faucet issues. However, there are other faucet problems that signal the need for repairs or replacement. Squeaky handles, grime and water irritants coming from your faucet and old parts can all indicate the need for repairs. If you have a particularly troublesome tap, our plumbers can perform faucet replacements. These projects can resolve your issues while also giving your bathroom or kitchen an overdue makeover.

Kitchen Faucet Repair
Kitchen faucets typically last anywhere from 15 to 20 years. However, its lifespan also depends on proper installation and the quality of your water. Hard water, which is rich in minerals like Calcium and Magnesium, negatively interacts with your kitchen amenities. Moreover, these minerals often damage stainless steel and brass faucets in your kitchen.
The longer you put off leaky faucet repair, the bigger the leak becomes. When this happens, your wasteful faucet can cause your monthly water bill to skyrocket. Typically, a leaky kitchen faucet is caused by corrosion or broken parts inside your faucet. Florida’s humidity also has an effect on the mold and mildew growth inside your faucet parts.

Bathroom Faucet Repair
By simply looking at your sink versus your shower, it’s easy to understand that your shower has a stronger flow rate than your sink’s faucet. This is great for receiving water, but the more water you get, the bigger the problems are that come with faucet leaks.
Leaky Shower Faucets
Leaky shower faucet repair often saves you more money than fixing your leaky kitchen faucet because your shower delivers water quicker. That water speed also typically means faster leaks, more wasted water and higher monthly bills.
An unexpected culprit causes shower faucets to leak: high water pressure. While a high-pressured shower feels good on achy muscles after a long day, water that is too strong can cause water to spurt out of your shower. If you notice shower leaks, it may be necessary to trade in those powerful showers and lower your water pressure.
Bathtub faucet repair sometimes differs slightly from your shower faucet. While modern shower faucets have a spigot for draining your bath, traditional shower faucets didn’t include bath components. If you still have the older model, maintenance and repairs require a more advanced system than modern cartridge faucets.
Outdoor Faucet Repair
Outdoor faucet repair isn’t the same as your kitchen or bathroom repairs either because outdoor faucets are vulnerable to environmental irritants and damage. Some typical outdoor faucet problems include aerator issues, which stop your water supply from flowing out of the spout, and gravel or outdoor sludge getting jammed into your faucet’s components.
Thankfully, Florida doesn’t require too much extra attention like some of the colder states that experience freezing winters and snow. When snow and ice make their way into your pipes and onto your faucets, they can cause pipes to burst and faucets to crack. However, Florida’s regular humidity can lead to more mold and mildew growth in your outdoor faucet.
While it’s not always easy to see mold and mildew inside your faucet, foul odors are a common occurrence around these irritants. If you smell a musty woody smell, it’s likely mold is lurking nearby. Typically, mold grows in places that are dark and humid, making Florida faucets the ultimate breeding ground.
