Don't Let it Leak: Tricks and Tips for Keeping Your Pipes and Faucets Dry

leaking bathroom water tap close up

Leaky pipes and faucets can be a huge pain, but did you know that they can also have huge environmental impacts? A leaky faucet that drips twice a minute can waste up to 105 gallons a year! Here are some quick tips to help you stop your plumbing from dripping or leaking until you can get a professional to repair them.

Usually, fixing a leaky faucet is really simple. Most of the time, if you have lived in your home or apartment for a while, then a leaky faucet is simply a symptom of a worn washer in the faucet. This washer is typically under the knobs that control water flow through the faucet head. Taking faucets apart is generally pretty easy, but make sure that you turn of the water line connected to your house before you begin. If after doing this you still notice water dripping from the faucet, then it’s time to call a plumber to take a look and make the necessary repairs.

Quick fixes for leaky pipes are also pretty easy. Often you may notice water dripping out of a joint in your plumbing. The first thing you should do is try tightening the joint to see if this will stop the dripping. If not, then the joint will need to be prepared by a plumbing professional. If the leak is elsewhere on the line, then you can simply wrap plumber’s tape or duct tape around the leak or use an epoxy putty that is specially made for plumbing. For larger leaks, we recommend having a professional take a look at your plumbing right away because you may have larger repairs that need to be done.

Once you make your quick fix or if your quick fixes are unsuccessful, call All Plumbing, Inc. immediately! We handle all sorts of plumbing issues, from water main repair to hydro-jetting and drain cleaning.

How To Repair Bathroom Plumbing: Checking Ball Valve Installation

An important part of plumbing repairs is knowing how to properly connect two pieces of pipe together to ensure a tight fit. Soldering two pipes together will allow you to lengthen a line of pipe or utilize some sort of special fitting.

In this video from Expert Village, plumbing expert Jon Olson will show you how to properly solder a piece of copper piping to a ball valve, which regulates the amount of water that flows through the pipe.

Jon is a seasoned expert, so we don’t recommend you making large plumbing repairs on your own. Instead, call the plumbing pros at All Plumbing Inc. We specialize in all sorts of plumbing repairs and installation, including drain cleaning, hydrojetting, sewer line maintenance, and water main repair.
