How do I know if my faucet needs repair or replacement?

Recognizing when it’s time for a faucet repair or replacement can save you from unnecessary water waste and further damage. At Mainstream, we understand the importance of a well-functioning faucet in your kitchen or bathroom. Here are signs indicating it might be time to consider our professional services for a new faucet:

  1. Dripping Faucet: Persistent dripping is a clear sign your faucet may need attention or replacement.
  2. Low Water Pressure: If water flow has weakened, it could indicate a problem within the faucet or related plumbing.
  3. Leaking Faucet or Handle: Visible leaks from the faucet or its handles require immediate repair to prevent water damage.
  4. Rust, Grime, or Mineral Deposits: These can compromise the quality of water and the faucet’s functionality.
  5. Creaking Handle or Other Impaired Components: Difficulty in operation suggests internal wear or damage.
  6. Spitting Faucet: An uneven water flow or “spitting” points to a clogged or malfunctioning faucet.
  7. Noisy Faucet: Unusual noises during operation are often symptoms of a deeper issue within the faucet mechanism.
  8. Aging Faucet: Over time, faucets may simply wear out and become less efficient, warranting a replacement.
  9. Bad Water Smell or Taste: Changes in water quality can sometimes be traced back to faucet issues.
  10. Mold Formation: The presence of mold around the faucet indicates moisture problems that need addressing.
