We use our faucets daily, constantly turning them on, then off, then on again. It should not be a surprise when all of a sudden they start to drip then leak. When this happens, it usually means that there is a worn part that needs to be replaced in your kitchen or bathroom faucet. You do want to get this fixed as soon as possible because a leaky faucet can quickly turn into a sink bowl and rust your fixtures. And on top of that, you don’t want to waste water which is not good for your water bill or the environment.
Did you know a faucet that drips 5 times a minute wastes approximately 230 gallons a year! If it is a simple fix and your the handy type, you may be able to tackle it yourself.
