Let Us Handle All Your Faucet Needs

Without working faucets, you will have no access to water, a vital nutrient to our body and an important resource your home or business. A faucet that fails to operate correctly needs to be repaired by a reliable, experienced plumber. Essig Plumbing & Heating has been providing plumbers to Reading and Berks County residents for over 80 years.

Other services we provide include:

  • Leaky faucet
  • Leaky vegetable sprayer
  • Squeal or squeak when a faucet is on
  • Not enough water coming out
  • Poor water flow
  • Non-operable knobs

Most of these complications are due to normal wear and tear or a faucet that has reached its useful life. However, some can be because of a manufacturer defect or poor installation.

Why You Should Not Attempt to Self-Fix Your Faucet Issue

While you may want to attempt a fix yourself or think that it may be cheaper to DIY, that is not always the case. Our plumbers are experienced and will not be guessing when they come to repair your faucet—what may seem like a small problem, can become a catastrophic event if a repair is unsuccessful. Take for example a leaking faucet; if you attempt to repair this yourself and the fix is not done correctly, you are throwing away money. It is estimated that a faucet that drips at a moderate pace throughout a day can waste up to $20 worth of water.

When we arrive at your home, we will:

  • Listen to your concerns
  • Test the faucet components
  • Inspect the faucet
  • Provide a quote with upfront pricing

How Are Common Faucet Malfunctions Fixed?

After presenting you with a quote and several different options for either repair or replacement, we will begin the work. For a leaking faucet, a squeaky faucet or a faucet that has non-working knobs, replacing washers, nuts and seals can typically fix the issue. Poor water flow from the faucet head is usually solved by cleaning or replacing the aerator. A vegetable sprayer that is not functioning, on the other hand, typically needs a diverter change or cleaning.

Your faucet has a usable life of 10 to 15 years. If your faucet is older, we may recommend a total replacement. Faucets on the market today have several great features including touch sensitive models, attached sprayer models and more. If you are interested in a total faucet replacement, our plumbers will be happy to assist you.
