Water Valve Repair
There are different water valves at different points of use around your home. Usually, a water valve allows you to shut off water that may be running into your home. You may need to use your valve in case of emergency, to conduct maintenance, and even to complete a repair. Here are some common problems you might encounter with your water valves:
- A dripping valve: A dripping valve can be caused by a variety of issues, but it’s prone to start up after switching your water valve on after having it off for some time.
- Burst valve or pipe: During the winter, water in your valves can freeze and expand causing a broken valve or pipe.
- Old valves: Older styles of valves such as saddle valves are prone to problems.
