Dripping Faucet Repair
Faucet gaskets and washers wear out over time, requiring replacement parts every few years. The frequency of faucet repairs depends on the quality of your O-rings and sink hardware. Buying better quality sink fixtures now saves you time in the future.
Different faucets exhibit different behavior when they need repairs. Your faucet may become gradually harder and harder to turn off, or may simply drip when the valve is seemingly closed. Dripping faucets generally worsen over time, so it makes sense to repair them immediately. A slow drip running 24 hours a day 7 days a week quickly adds up to hundreds of gallons of wasted water.
Faucet repair depends on the style of sink fixture and the particular model. The rubber washer needs replacement for a complete seal when your faucet handle is in the off position. If you are experienced with home plumbing maintenance, you may be able to perform the repairs yourself. Simple compression faucets are easier to repair than ball or cartridge faucets. Consult your sink fixture manufacturer for safe repair instructions.

Drain Clogs Flood Wisconsin Bathrooms
Ensure foreign objects can’t reach your drain. Shower drain filters catch hair and other debris before they settle in your drain and cause annoying clogs. Kitchen sinks without garbage disposals should also be covered to prevent trouble some food clogs.
When your bathtub seems to drain slowly or your showers are accompanied by a few inches of water at your feet, a drain clog is starting to form. Remove the drain plug to check for any obvious obstructions. If no clog is readily removable or the problem does not subside, your drain probably has a deeper clog.
Use a plastic drain hook to reach into your clogged drain and remove any obstructions. If you don’t have a drain hook, a simple piece of rigid wire may unclog your drain. Bend the wire into a hook and probe the drain for clogs. If this simple repair does not work, your drain has a deeper clog requiring specialized tools and knowledge. Roto-rooter’s experienced drain cleaners will remove any drain clog, restoring your Hartford plumbing system to working order.
Leaky Pipes Damage Wisconsin Homes
Leaky pipes in Wisconsin are commonly caused by freezing temperatures. Water running through poorly insulated sections of wall is vulnerable to freezing. Water expands when it turns into ice, often bursting pipes and damaging seals. Proper plumbing insulation guards against cold temperatures, reducing the chance of freezing and burst pipes.
Exterior water lines require seasonal flushing to prevent freezing damage. Roto-Rooter’s experienced plumbers will clear your vulnerable water pipes to save you huge repair costs.
Damp spots on a wall or a swelling bubble on the ceiling are obvious signs of leaking pipes, but sometimes leaks occur far from where the water eventually collects. Water can leak from a joint or crack and then run along the pipe itself, all the way down the length of your wall. It is important to quickly locate and repair the leak before water damage and rot occurs.
If the leaking pipe is easily accessible, find exactly where the water is coming from. Pipe vibrations can gradually unscrew pipe joints and create annoying but easily fixed water leaks. Tighten the joint with a wrench to see if this solves the problem. Apply firm pressure but be careful not to break or over-tighten the joint. Remember, serious leaks require immediate water shutoff to prevent flooding and water damage.
