We get the calls all the time: a customer has a leaking hose spigot and thinks its a simple plumbing repair. Well, not always. Sometimes it is just a packing nut that requires easily tightening a nut to stop, but if the hose spigot is leaking from the actual hose connection, most times the best fix is replacement. Most people think it’s just changing a washer. Most of the time the hose spigot is original to the house and the seat is shot. Changing a washer will only temporarily fix the problem, if you can even get the bib to come apart to replace the washer. The best way to fix the problem is replacement of the bib. This will require the Lake Mary plumber to chip a hole in the block wall to access the pipe and cut and replace the bib. Most customers think you can just unscrew the hose spigot, but this is not the case most of the time. It is time consuming and most Lake Mary plumbing companies do not patch the concrete. Drain Genie Plumbing Services does patch concrete and once replaced you will have years of worry free use. If you need a Lake Mary plumber or Orlando plumber, give us a call at 407-490-1230 or 407-519-1020.
