It may be easy to forget about, but a leaky faucet is something that shouldn’t be ignored. Though it’s just a drip at a time, the water you’re losing can add up quickly. The leak can result in hundreds of gallons of lost water every year. Getting your leaky faucet repaired quickly is better for your wallet and for the environment. What might be causing the faucet to leak?
- Improper installation: If your faucet isn’t installed correctly or is not the correct size, it can result in leaks. This is especially common when installing rubber washers.
- Old washer: The rubber washer is forced against the valve seat every time you turn on your faucet, which causes it to wear out. This will result in dripping around the spout. This can be repaired quickly by a professional plumber.
- Corrosion: The valve seat can become corroded from accumulation of water sediments. This can lead to leaks around the spout.
