What Can You Expect if You Don’t Know What’s Causing Your Faucet to Drip?

Do you know that a faucet that drips continuously brings with it a lot of pains besides annoying you? There are a host of issues that you might face if you continue to live with a leaking faucet.

Unsightly water stains there— which can also be not easy to remove without regular maintenance, are often one of the most visually arresting issues that you will face. If you are like many homeowners, you simply won’t feel like your sink is clean unless it is stained free then you’ll be particularly bothered by this fact. Having to remove the water stains each time you clean your sink will also increase the time this chore takes you.

Think of your sink’s drain being blocked by either food or any dish, or if the stopper is down, that continuously leaking faucet can take an unexpected turn and become a small flood. Imagine coming home after a long day at work only to discover that a waterfall has erupted in your kitchen and provided you with an increasing pool of water on your floor.

The most painful issue that you might face when it comes to a leaking faucet is the increase in your utility bills. Some homeowners are unpleasantly surprised at the fact that something they thought was pretty harmless carries a rather large price tag.

The Five Common Problems of a Leaking Faucet

  1. Broken or damaged parts
    Your faucet is designed with several important parts that if they’re damaged can cause it to leak. Compression-type faucets are those that have a separate hot and cold handle as well as a washer, often sustain damage to their stem assemblies that can cause them to leak.

  2. Worn out cartridges
    Cartridge faucets are designed with a stem cartridge that is movable. When that cartridge begins to go bad, it can lead to the faucet leaking.

  3. Check water pressure
    A reduction in the water pressure of a particular faucet is often caused by a broken pipe. If you’ve ruled out other possible causes, it could be that a broken pipe is interfering your water pressure with the result being that you have a leaking faucet. A professional plumber should check the integrity of your pipes.

  4. Broken pipe or fitting
    In addition to broken pipes, a fitting that is not in excellent repair could also cause your faucet to leak. Clips and valve assemblies that are worn out can allow water to drip continuously from your faucet.

  5. Loose handles
    There’s no doubt about it that your faucet handles get a great deal of use. Over time, you might find them becoming loose with you having to readjust them over and over again. Eventually, you might even notice some moisture near the handles that then turns into a telltale leak.

A leaking faucet isn’t usually considered an emergency issue by professional plumbers. It is, however, a chronic problem that should be addressed as soon as possible. Doing so can help give you peace of mind while saving you time.
