If you are looking for a new way to save money, look no further than doing your own plumbing repairs. They may not be flashy investments, but they will save you money. In this video, you will learn how to make two common repairs and save you a call to the local plumber service.
A common issue is a stuck faucet handle. This can make sinks hard to use to unusable depending on the severity.
By fixing it yourself, you will save yourself a bunch of money. The trick is to figure out how to remove the handle that is sticking from the faucet. You may need to use a wrench or another tool if the handle is very stuck. Once the handle has been removed, you should have a good look inside. There is likely some type of debris such as hair or dirt that has gotten into the handle and clogged up the inner workings. Take some time to remove any debris that you see. If you don’t see debris, you may have to order a new stem unit. However, this can be difficult because many units have different stem parts. If this is the case, you may be better off calling your local plumber.
