In Washington, the winters can be harsh, bringing the risk of frozen outdoor spigots. To protect your spigots during the cold months, consider these preventative measures:

  1. Install Freeze-Proof Faucets: These are designed to prevent water from freezing inside the spigot, reducing the risk of burst pipes.
  2. Insulate Outdoor Faucets: Insulation can keep the cold air away from your spigots.
  3. Disconnect Hoses: Water left in hoses can freeze and expand, causing connected spigots to freeze and break.
  4. Install Frost-Free Hose Bibs: These are specifically designed to prevent freezing by shutting off the water flow within the heated space of your home.
  5. Use Outdoor Faucet Covers: These inexpensive covers provide additional insulation against the cold.
  6. Drain Water Lines: Removing all water from the lines prevents freezing.
  7. Install Heat Tape: Heat tape around pipes can keep them warm enough to prevent freezing.
  8. Close Interior Shut-Off Valves: Shutting off the water supply to outdoor faucets from inside the home can prevent freezing.
  9. Seal Gaps and Cracks: Sealing any openings in your home’s exterior can keep cold air away from pipes and spigots.
  10. Use Faucet Insulation Covers: Similar to outdoor faucet covers, these provide a barrier against the cold.
  11. Keep Garage Doors Closed: If your outdoor spigots are located near or in a garage, keeping the garage doors closed can help maintain a warmer environment around the pipes.

Mainstream is dedicated to helping Spokane residents winterize their homes, ensuring that your outdoor spigots and plumbing are prepared for the winter chill and the summer heat every year. If you’re unsure about how to protect your outdoor plumbing or need professional assistance, Mainstream is here to help with all your plumbing needs.

Replacing a faucet can be a manageable DIY project for those comfortable with basic home improvement tasks. To aid in this process, we’ve crafted a straightforward 6-Step Guide on faucet installation, accessible here. Before starting, ensure you have all necessary tools, such as plumber’s tape and a wrench. The process involves shutting off the water supply, removing the old faucet, cleaning the mounting area, and then installing the new faucet according to the manufacturer’s instructions. After connecting the supply lines, turn the water back on to test for leaks.

While many homeowners successfully complete this task, it’s important to assess your comfort level and the condition of your existing plumbing. If you’re unsure or if any complications arise—particularly with older or damaged plumbing connections—seeking professional assistance from Mainstream is recommended. Our experienced plumbers ensure a seamless and secure installation, giving you peace of mind and saving you from potential issues down the line. For those in the Spokane and Northern Idaho areas, Mainstream is here to help with all your faucet needs, from DIY guidance to full-service installation and repairs.

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.

At Mainstream, serving the Spokane and Northern Idaho areas, we’re here to help you assess whether your faucet requires repair or a complete replacement. Our skilled technicians can recommend the best solutions to ensure your faucet operates efficiently and enhances your home’s aesthetic. Trust Mainstream for all your faucet installation, repair, and replacement needs, and experience the peace of mind that comes with expert plumbing services.

Our faucet installation service includes removal and disposal of your old faucet, installation of your newly purchased faucet, attachment of new supply lines, testing of the new faucet and debris cleanup. Please note that a faucet is not included in the price of installation.

Additional charges may apply for drain repair or to replace supply lines and shutoff valves. We may need to do a site visit before quoting specialty and wall-mounted sink faucets due to the complexity of these installations. Installation costs vary, and prices are subject to change.

Wear and tear determine the lifespan of most products but we believe a good kitchen faucet will last a lifetime. Longevity depends on many factors including water pressure, the condition of your water line, and the quality of the faucet.

No, but they are still something you should have address ASAP.

So, the tap drips a little — what’s the big deal? The reality is a leaky faucet can cause more problems than you might realize. In fact, by fixing a leaky faucet as soon as you notice it, you can:

  • Conserve water: A slow drip of just three drops a minute wastes about 157 gallons a year. At this rate, all the houses in the U.S. waste a collective 1 trillion gallons of water in faucet leaks alone! Don’t let your home contribute to this waste — call us to fix your faucet quickly and effectively.
  • Keep costs down: Who wants to pay more than necessary on their water bills? If you notice your costs going up, leaky faucets could be to blame. Fixing the leak is a guaranteed way to bring your bills back down.
  • Avoid puddles, rust, and mold: If you have a hidden leak that drips water under the sink, a pool may start to form in the cabinet. Over time, this damages the wood and may contribute to mold growth. Even if the faucet only drips from the tap or handle, excessive water here could corrode the metal components of the drain and faucet, causing unsightly damage. Thankfully, repairing the leak promptly preserves the appearance of your sink and cabinet.
  • Eliminate the annoying dripping noise: Even if you’re not bothered by water waste, rising utility bills, or potential property damage, fixing a leaky faucet serves another essential purpose — getting rid of that infuriating drip, drip, drip!
