What Causes My Faucets To Drip?

 

Faucet RepairIf you find that you have a leaky faucet, you probably feel a little nervous. After all, a leaky faucet can really start to inflate your monthly water bills over time. There can be numerous reasons why a faucet is leaking, from simple and easy fixes to more complicated ones. Here are some causes of why your faucets might be dripping.

Knobs Not Turned Tightly Enough – One of the simplest reasons why your faucet might be leaking is because the knobs simply aren’t turned tightly enough. When you turn off your water, be sure that the handles are turned all the way off.

Damaged Parts – If you turn the knobs all the way off but still experience a leak, the parts themselves might be damaged. You could need a new cartridge, knob or valve. It’s important that you have an experienced plumbed come in and make the repair.

Too Much Water Pressure – If there’s too much water pressure in your home, the pressure can often force your faucets to leak. A plumber will be able to come into your home and readjust the water pressure so that you don’t experience any money-wasting leaks.

Damaged Plumbing – If you have cracked or broken pipes in your home, this can cause a leak to form. While this can be a major repair, a good plumber can come in and do the repair quickly and expertly.

No matter the reason for your leak, if you’re experiencing a leaky faucet, it’s important that you have a plumber come in and survey the leak as soon as possible. Don’t spend another week losing money on your monthly water bills due to a leaky faucet. Instead, call us and we can come in and repair your leak for you.
