Faucet repair and installation are seldom as easy as homeowner’s believe them to be. Once a faucet is disassembled, you realize how complicated the task really is. Even when you have repaired a faucet in the past, you may be unprepared for the skill and knowledge required for a different type of faucet. That is due to there being four types of faucets, and each one requires different parts. The four types of faucets are the compression faucet, cartridge faucets, disk faucets, and ball faucets. A Benjamin Franklin Plumbing plumber in Fort Worth can provide efficient, expert repair on all types of faucets.

When a faucet appears to have low water pressure, remove the aerator on the end of the spigot to check the water pressure. If the pressure is normal, check the aerator for hard water buildup. A clogged aerator can be cleaned or replaced. Remove buildup by soaking the aerator in white vinegar, until the buildup dissolves. Use a soft brush with vinegar to remove remaining residue. Rinse and replace. When low water pressure is not related to the aerator, check the pressure at other faucets. Low water pressure in all taps may indicate a water leak if the water supplier is not providing repair to water mains. Otherwise, contact a plumber in Fort Worth for water line repair in Fort Worth.
Vinegar on a soft toothbrush is also good for removing buildup deposits on the faucet body. Test to ensure the vinegar will not damage the finish in an inconspicuous area.
Follow the manufacturer’s instruction for cleaning and care of faucets. Those with chrome faucets will find a soft microfiber cloth beneficial for removing cleaning streaks, without scratching the finish.
Today’s wide variety of faucets includes the latest technology for convenience, and health benefits:
- Touch technology provides water with just a bump. Of even greater convenience is hands free faucet operation. With motion sensor technology, all it takes is a wave of the hand. This eliminates the need to clean a faucet after touching it with batter on your hands. It is especially beneficial in public and employee bathrooms for preventing the spread of germs.
- Pull out faucets feature a pull out sprayer that runs through the faucet body. They make meal preparation and cleanup easier, and eliminate the need for a separate sprayer on the sink deck providing a cleaner appearance to the sink.
- Pot filler faucets can be mounted on the deck, or on the wall behind the range for ultra-convenience. They are convenient for filling pots right on the stovetop without the need to carry them from sink to stove.
