The first step is to turn off the water supply to the affected area. Then, you can try tightening the pipe fittings or replacing any damaged or worn out parts, such as gaskets or washers. For larger leaks, you may need to use pipe sealant or replace the entire section of pipe.

Fix a Broken Faucet

If your faucet is leaking from the spout, you may need to replace the valve stem or cartridge inside the faucet. If the leak is coming from the base of the faucet, you may need to tighten the mounting nuts or replace the O-ring or washer. For more extensive damage, you may need to replace the entire faucet.

Repair a Leaky pipe or Broken Faucet

You will need a few basic tools, including an adjustable wrench, pliers, screwdrivers, and pipe wrenches. You may also need specialty tools, such as a basin wrench or a pipe cutter, depending on the nature of the repair. It’s always a good idea to consult a plumbing guide or professional for guidance on which tools you’ll need for your specific repair job.
