Fix A Faucet Leak | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Billy the Sunshine Plumber can track down and repair your plumbing leaks.

You were brushing your teeth this morning while getting dressed for a trip to the Shine Murals Festival when you noticed a small puddle of water around the base of the faucet. You cut off the water and mopped up the water, which did not reappear until you turned the water back on.

It certainly sounds as if you have a faucet leak. explains, “This type of leak is often caused by an internal O-ring that has dried up or cracked. The O-ring fits around the inner brass body of the faucet beneath the outer housing, and it serves to seal the faucet body against water. When it becomes worn or cracked, water can seep down along the faucet body and out the bottom when the valve is turned on. Less commonly, leaks in this area can be caused by an inner cartridge that has become worn. If fixing the O-ring doesn’t help, you may need to replace the valve cartridge, as well.”

You can try to replace both the O-ring and the valve cartridge yourself. But if you’re not comfortable doing that, call the trusted plumbers at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
