Faucets are an indispensable part of a home. For this reason, keeping faucets
in good, working condition is important. Along with the disturbance that
leaking faucets can cause, these problems can also add to a water bill
and result in larger inconveniences that can destroy other parts of the home.
Causes of Leaking Faucets
Although dripping faucets may seem easy to fix, many problems that cause
these problems can become complicated due to the various parts used to
maintain a working faucet. For this reason, it best to contact an experienced plumber.
In most cases, dripping faucets are usually the result of the following:
- Mineral deposit on the internal parts
- Defective gaskets
- Broken O-rings
- Eroded washers
While leaking faucets can cause problems in your home, they can also negatively
affect the environment, a problem our team at The Eco Plumbers is dedicated
How Leaks Negatively Affect the Environment
According to the United States Environment Protection Agency, roughly 10,000
gallons of water is wasted in a single home every year. This amount of
water is enough to fill a swimming pool. Sources estimate that fixing
a leaking faucet can save a homeowner about 10% on water bills.
