Our Client’s Problem Began with a Leaky Tub Faucet

The root of our client’s plumbing problem in Mesa stemmed from a leak in the tub faucet. Upon arrival, our technician engaged with the customer to understand the issue. It was revealed that the faucet had been dripping for quite a while but had worsened over time. Now, it was just a flow of water that they were unable to stop.

While a dripping tub faucet may appear minor at first glance, it can lead to detrimental effects over time, such as:

  1. The continuous moisture from a leaky faucet can cause corrosion and damage to the faucet, surrounding fixtures, and surfaces.
  2. Accumulated moisture creates an environment for mold and mildew growth, posing health risks and necessitating a deep clean.
  3. Loss of water pressure and a gradual expansion of the leak

Technician Evaluation: Can the Damage Be Fixed or Is Replacement a Better Option?

The technician assessed the bathroom layout and observed that the tub was a unit with a shower and surround. The faucet was a double handle with a handle diverter. Upon examination, it was found that the faucet was no longer dripping, but streaming water. There were signs of wear and tear on the faucet and surrounding walls and a crack in the tub.

John’s Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing skilled technicians conducted a faucet check:

  1. Determine the source of the issue. Is the drip due to a faulty faucet washer, valve, or another underlying problem?
  2. Decide whether to repair or replace components. Based on the severity of the problem, it might be possible to fix the faucet by replacing worn-out washers, seals, or other parts. However, In some cases, a complete replacement may be necessary.
  3. Address any water damage that may have occurred. If the leaky faucet has damaged bathroom plumbing fixtures or structures, fixing the damage is important to prevent further deterioration and potential health risks.

After the assessment, our Mesa plumbing expert informed the customer that replacing the tub and installing new fixtures for both the tub and shower were necessary to resolve the issues.

At John’s Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing, we offer expert advice to help clients understand the root cause of their plumbing issues, suggest solutions, and assist them in choosing the best options for their requirements and budget.

The Solution: Mesa Tub Replacement

Following discussions with our client, they decided to replace the tub with a new Kohler tub and a Sterling shower surround, which required two plumbers to install. After removing the old tub, we could inspect the underlying drain piping for any problems. If necessary, we would provide repair quotes or perform drain cleaning.

Further bathroom plumbing work was necessary as the shut-off valves for the hall bathroom were broken, affecting shower functionality. With the customer's approval, we also replaced the four shut-off valves for both bathrooms.

Our technicians carefully removed the tub and took steps to prevent leaking. They readied the area for installing the new bathtub by ensuring a sturdy base and walls were in place. After confirming there were no issues with the drain piping, they securely positioned the tub and got to work.

They installed, aligned, and sealed the tub and shower surround. Our staff completed the plumbing connections and installed the tub, shower fixtures, and doors.

At John’s Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing, we take pride in our high-quality work and customer satisfaction. We are so confident in our services in Mesa that we offer a Money-Back installation or Replacement Guarantee.
