A faucet will make unwanted noises for different reasons. Those noises are indicators of larger problems that are growing in your system. It is important to not simply learn to tolerate the noises, but to instead do something about them. There are three main causes for a noisy faucet, and the problems can be sometimes fixed DIY (with some plumbing knowledge and the right tools). If you feel the problem is outside of your capabilities, contact a plumber NYC for help.
Sometimes, eliminating unwanted noises is as simple as installing new washers. With ample usage, a washer gets worn out. To fix this problem you will first want to turn off the water supply.
The noises can be originating from a faulty aerator. As mineral deposits build up in the screen at the tip of the faucet, water has to push harder to come out. This creates an unpleasant whistling noise. Purchasing and installing a new aerator is as easy as unscrewing an old light bulb and then screwing in a new one.
Water pressure that is over 80 psi can cause problems in a plumbing system. One problem is whistling noises coming from your faucet. Plumbers NYC can install pressure regulators to lessen the water pressure and to solve the problem.
Don't live with a noisy faucet.
