VFP Plumbing Services
Faucet and Valve Services
Like all plumbing appliances, faucets and valves sometimes require repair even with proper maintenance. Whether you need your plumbing systems repaired, tested or replaced, our qualified workers will find the right solution. By regularly checking your faucets & valve services, we can detect problems while they are still minor, making for relatively inexpensive repairs while avoiding downtime and disruption. Because faucets & valves may be used literally hundreds of times daily, they have to be regularly checked. We are dedicated to providing the best in plumbing repair, installation and maintenance services.
Faucet repair and replacement
Nothing lasts forever, including the mechanics of a faucet. It’s not uncommon for pipe dripping to go ignored until it becomes a huge issue. A leaking faucet, though seemingly innocuous at first, is actually quite costly as the wasted resources begin to add up (one leaking faucet could cost around $20 a month extra on the water bill). However, if a leak is combined with a drain malfunction, the issue suddenly becomes quite urgent. At VFP Plumbing, we help clients fight against such issues with regularly scheduled faucet and valve services.
While it could be something as small as a worn washer or a damaged nut that causes a leak, it’s important to have a routine maintenance strategy in place to ensure that all the faucets in a facility are in working order. This also catches potential problems before they occur.
Common causes for a leaking faucet include:
- Loose or damaged packing nuts
- Age-related issues affecting the faucet cartridge
- Pitting in a valve’s brass housing
- A compromised washer cartridge
- Sediment or rust buildup that affects the mechanical housing
Contact VFP Plumbing and have us come to your facility and inspect all your faucets.
We will repair or replace any damaged parts quickly and efficiently.
Valve repair and installation
Much like faucets, valves can be the source of major plumbing issues. However, since valves control the flow of water from the piping to the faucet any damage that occurs to them requires immediate attention. Unlike faucets, which are easy to see and inspect, valves are often hidden out of sight and can thus lead to more serious issues, such as flooding, when they malfunction.
Signs that your valves need to be repaired or replaced include:
- Poor water pressure
- Musty odors coming from under a cabinet sink
- Pooling water near valves
- Higher-than-expected water bills
- Mold and/or discoloration on walls near valves
At VFP Plumbing, we assist clients in identifying valve connection types and provide the solutions necessary to ensure that the flow of water is consistent and safe. Please contact us in case you need some help with your valves or faucets repair or replacement.
“I would like to commend you and your staff on this work ethic – their consideration in not disturbing our customers – business and hours of operation. The installation was completed in a professional manner and not obtrusive.”
Water pressure problems and broken plumbing solutions
Having the right water pressure in a building is imperative. At VFP Plumbing, we ensure that the flow of water in our clients’ facilities is operating at optimal levels. However, there are a number of reasons the flow can be compromised, including:
- Bad water valves
- Debris in water
- Faulty pressure regulators
- Piping leaks
- Mineral deposits in piping
- Low pressure from water mains
The source of the problem isn’t always in plain sight, which is why it’s crucial to call in a plumbing professional with the technology to detect where the issue originates. Old iron pipes can gradually narrow from years of calcified buildup, causing water pressure to eventually come to a standstill. Rust may break loose and plug a faucet, the inside of a valve of other locations within the plumbing system, leading to low water pressure. It is surprising how often faucet and valve problems lead to more severe issues.
At VFP Plumbing, we’ll determine if the plumbing is broken, if the water pressure from the city is compromised, if the pressure regulators need to be repaired or replaced, or if the source of your problems is due to debris in the plumbing system.
