Here’s a really unique bathroom vanity sink faucet I discovered at today’s home inspection in the San Juan Islands. I’ve never seen a faucet like this and wanted to share!
Tim Hance discovered a “free-spinning” Jacuzzi tub faucet at a recent inspection on Orcas Island. If your faucet handle does this, typically the valve needs replacement; a plumbing contractor may very well advise simply replacing both faucets, especially if they’re older.
Most of us have had an annoying dripping faucet that we just haven’t had a chance to repair or replace. You can temporarily quiet things down with a piece of string. Just tie it around the end of the faucet spout and let the free end rest on the bottom of the sink. The drops of water will travel down the string silently, and tranquility can be restored until you are able to get to it. When it’s time for the repair, doityourself.com has a pretty good guide to help you do the job right.
