There are four types of bathroom faucets, the cartridge, ball, disk and compression. At Twin Cities Rooter our plumbing professionals are experts at repairing or replacing any of them. If you’re interested in trying to repair your own faucet, first of all figure out which type of faucet you have. Once that is determined, you’ll be better able to figure out what’s wrong with it. Remember that any time you work on your faucet, always make sure to turn off the water shut-off valves below your sink, that way you won’t have any major water spills. Not comfortable repairing your faucet yourself, just give us a call and we’ll send a local plumber your way.
- Use low-flow bathroom faucets: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has developed the WaterSense partnership program with fixture manufacturers to develop bathroom and kitchen fixtures that use less water. Look for products with the WaterSense label to help conserve water in your house.
- Install low-flow aerators on your current bathroom faucets: For many faucets, it’s also possible to simply install a low-flow aerator at the end of the spout. Aerators control the flow of the water out of the faucet and introduce air into the stream. As a result this added air ensures the water pressure stays the same while the fixture uses less water when it’s on.
- Opt for a efficient shower head: Like WaterSense faucets, shower heads with the label use less water without sacrificing pressure.
