Consistent faucet leaks should be checked by a plumber
Most do-it-yourselfers can typically replace their faucets by themselves. However, if you are not handy with tools or you aren’t comfortable working on plumbing, you should probably let a professional handle this type of work. It would be very easy to make a mistake that could damage your plumbing and lead to a very expensive repair.
If your faucet commonly leaks, has poor water flow, or squeals or squeaks consistently, then you should probably have it checked by a plumber. A faucet that only drips at a moderate pace can waste as much as $20 worth of water in one day, so you should never take this sort of problem lightly. There are some instances where the problem could be something as simple as replacing some washers, seals, or nuts, or possibly replacing knobs that are hard to turn. However, if a replacement is necessary, then a skilled plumber can take care of the job so that you will once again have water flowing as it should.
