Hose Faucet Repair and Installation Services
You’re hosting a barbecue, and as the sun starts to go down, you’re getting ready for guests to come over. After setting up the table and chairs, you turn on your hose faucet outside to wash your hands, but no water comes out. There’s not a whole lot you can check since most of this plumbing is either in your ceiling or underground.
Most of the time, the only option is to call a plumber. The Plumber Guys have plumbers with decades of experience in fixing or replacing your outside hose faucet.
Hose Bibb “Boned-Out” to Access Handles
If we have to take apart your hose faucet assembly, we will remove one or more washers from inside it before completely disassembling the hose bibb. After we have access to the shut-off valve handles, we can tighten or replace any necessary parts before putting the whole thing back together.
After removing the handle, we will inspect the faucet to see if it can be fixed without taking the entire thing apart. Sometimes, all that needs to be done is to replace an O-ring or washer inside the hose faucet handle assembly. This is often similar to O-ring issues we find when winterizing lawn sprinkling systems.
If we have to take apart your indoor water supply shut-off valve, we will put it back together the same way it came apart. In some cases, however, new washers will have to be installed.
If all that was wrong with your faucet was an O-ring or washer, it should look good as new once we have put everything back together and turned on the water supply.
Replace Cartridge or Ball Valve Assembly
If the faucet was boned out to replace an O-ring or washer, we might need to replace it anyway if we find that the threads on the handle are stripped. Sometimes, this can be remedied by replacing a cartridge or ball valve assembly instead of replacing the whole thing. If it turns out that the bonnet nut is stripped and needs to be replaced, we may have to open t a section of your house wall to get to it.
Replace Broken Shut Off Valve Handle Assembly
In some cases, it might not be the bonnet nut that needs replacing but rather the shut-off valve itself. This can be caused by not opening and closing the handle correctly and from age in general. If this is what we find, we may have to open a section of your house wall to get at it. Due to repeated wear and tear, a broken hose faucet shut-off valve assembly can be complicated to replace.
The Plumber Guys can help with all your outside hose faucet-related needs. If the handle is getting stuck because of gunk or corrosion, we can replace it for you. If there’s no water coming out at all and it’s either a leaky ball valve assembly or an O-ring issue, our team can fix that too. Give us a call today and let The Plumber Guys take care of everything from start to finish!
