Portland Kitchen and Bathtub Faucet Repair and Replacement

Over time, kitchen and bathroom faucets wear down, causing faucets to leak. At first, this may seem like a minor problem that can be put off for a while or ignored, but a leaky faucet can waste up to five gallons of water per day! Additionally, if you have water and moisture that is sticking around this can cause your faucets and even your sink to rust, causing you to replace your appliances.

Knowing which type of faucet you have can help pinpoint problem areas if you're looking to replace your faucet with a new one:

  • Cartridge faucets leak when the cartridge needs replaced, or when the O-ring that cushions the cartridge stem wears down or breaks.
  • Ball faucets are the category that most kitchen faucets fall into. Leaks can occur from either improperly adjusted ring tension or worn cam gaskets/spring-loaded rubber seat assemblies.
  • Compression faucets have washers and seals that will eventually fail due to the constant pressure; they are relatively simple to replace.
  • Disc faucets leak when sediment builds up in the faucet inlets, or when the inlet and outlet seals wear down.
