Steps to Quickly Solve a Dripping or Leaking Faucet

The first step to quickly solve a dripping or leaking faucet is to reach under the sink (the most common location) and turn off the water shut-off valve. If your house is not equipped with shutoffs for individual fixtures, you’ll have to go to the main shutoff and turn off the entire water supply to your home. Now listen carefully. Do you hear water continuing to run? If you do, you may have a much bigger problem. Call your Little Rock plumber at 501-607-6596.
