Plumbing problem: leaky outside faucet
Your local Mansfield CT plumber has received several calls this week for leaky outside faucet repair. Sometimes, the leak is obvious and can be seen dripping when the faucet is off. Sometimes, it's a little bit more hidden. If you have water in your basement after you've run the hose for a bit, your outside faucet may have split over the winter.* In other cases, the faucet simply won't turn on because it's seized shut. It's the time of year for getting the gardens going and topping off the pool. A plumbing problem shouldn't get in your way!
Solution: professional plumbing repair
No matter what's causing the leak, a Rapid Service plumber will quickly diagnose and propose a solution. If the leak was caused by a winter freeze-up, he will recommend a frost-free faucet replacement. This type of faucet can help prevent freezing. It's designed so that the pipe extends through the sidewall of the house. Combined with the flow valve, the pipe remains in the heated interior to prevent freezing.
A standard outside faucet option is also available. Your plumbing technician will provide all your options and upfront pricing so you are comfortable making a decision that fits YOUR lifestyle and budget.

*Pro Tip: To stop the water, locate the shut-off valve to the faucet and turn it off. If you do not have one, locate your whole-house water shut-off valve. You may be without water for a little bit until one of our plumber technicians arrives, but you will protect your basement from further water damage and mess.
