4 Reasons Why You Need to Fix Your Dripping Faucet

It may seem that leaky faucets are easy to spot. You know your faucet is leaking when you see a few drops of water from a turned off faucet. You might even notice that you need to turn the faucet handle a little tighter to prevent it from dripping. What most people fail to realize is that faucet leaks can appear in more than just the spout.

Here are 4 reasons why you need to fix your dripping faucet.

It’s not that hard to fix

Repairing a leaky faucet is simple and can be done in a jiffy. So gather your tools and tackle this issue today.

If left unaddressed, it can lead to a bigger, more complicated problem that will be more costly to fix. To prevent further damage, be sure to address the problem in the soonest possible time.

Save money on your water bill

A single drop of water doesn’t waste much water. But a leaky faucet with a drip rate of one drop per second wastes an enormous amount of water. On average, a dripping faucet can waste 970 gallons in 24 hours and over 3,000 gallons of water a year.

Ignoring a dripping faucet will leave you with a skyrocketing water bill. In fact, it has the potential to add about $200 on your annual water bill. By fixing a dripping faucet, you’ll not just save money on your water bill. You’re also be doing something good for the environment.

The constant dripping can be annoying

Leaky faucets can be difficult to discover during the day. But once you lay down in bed, you are likely to hear that drip, drip, drip sound. That nagging dripping sound can drive you insane, especially when you’re trying to sleep. It can turn into a full-blown problem if not addressed immediately. It may cause inconveniences that may range from annoying to catastrophic.

It can cause water damage

Most people ignore a dripping faucet, thinking it’s just a minor problem. However, ignoring the problem will only make it worse.

A dripping faucet can do much more damage than you think. What started out as a leak can lead to water damage and mold growth. Not only can it cause major damage in your home, it has the potential to cause health problems. The longer you wait to fix it, the worse it will become.
