Do You Have A Leaking Outside Hose Spigot In Your Lake Mary Home

If you have a leaking plumbing fixture such as a hose spigot in Lake Mary FL there are a few things you could do to fix the problem.  The first is to tighten the packing nut located just below the handle. Sometimes when a valve is not used for a very long time and then you try to use, it will leak from the packing nut and this is just a simple plumbing repair.

Another kind of leak is if it comes out of the hose spigot and doesn’t shut off all the way. Sometimes you can have your Lake Mary plumber rebuild the spigot and other times if the valve is too old, you may need to replace it. We at Drain Genie Plumbing suggest hiring a plumber to replace or rebuild the spigot.  Most of the time you need to chip the block wall to access the pipe. A good plumber will patch the hole with a fast setting cement when he is done installing the new hose spigot.

The next leak is when water sprays from the vacuum breaker and in this case the plumber will need to drill out the set screw and replace the vacuum breaker on your Lake Mary FL home. Most customers in Lake Mary FL may think a leaking hose spigot is just an easy fix which it is true sometimes but when you’re actually trying to replace the spigot, it’s not that simple. This type of fix can take a lot of time and labor.
