Outdoor Faucet Repair
Repairing your leaky outdoor faucet will save you a lot of money on the water bill and also prevent water damage to the exterior of your home. Outdoor water faucets typically run for years without the need for servicing until, eventually, water begins to continually spray from their handle or starts dripping from the spout and all you can do is to stop the leakage immediately and get the repairs done.
Repairing a leaking outdoor faucet is easier than you think it is, provided the faucet hasn’t become too corroded to disassemble. Faucets have a basic compression valve, which tightens a washer onto the valve seat as you turn the handle. Leaks occur when the washer or packing around this handle wears out, making way for the water to flow.
What you will need to repair your outdoor faucet:
- Spray lubricant
- Adjustable pliers
- Packing washer/packing string
- Flat-head screwdriver
- Seat washer
In outdoor faucets, leaks usually occur in either the handle or the spout. When it is the handle, try to tighten the packing nut using a wrench. If that does not stop the leak, you will have to remove the faucet’s valve stem assembly.
If it’s the spout, where the leakage occurs, directly remove the valve stem assembly from the leaky faucet to fix the leak.
Before getting your hands wet, make sure you the water is turned off when you unscrew the packing nut, if it is not turned out, you may get an unintended shower.
