Getting irritated for that non-stop dropping of water from your leaking faucet? There is no need to worry because you can be your own plumber and fix this issue right away. Here are the things you need to know.
Have you heard that a faucet dripping water because of a leak can lead to up to a hundred dollars worth of wasted money if not taken care of immediately? And that is just for a small leak! Imagine a larger faucet leak in your home.
It can actually waste more than 30 gallons of water in a single day, giving you more expenses without you even knowing.
There are a few reasons why your faucet is leaking. One reason is if there are damages in the cartridge. A cartridge-style faucet is one with two handles, usually for both hot and cold water. The cartridge is the valve on the handles which controls the water flow into the spout. If water is dripping, it is a sign that the cartridge might be damaged. Is it time to call the plumber? Yes!
Another possible damage is a broken washer or a malfunctioning o-ring. Water pressure can also cause damage and irregularity in your faucet, leading to damage and eventually leaks and drips. This video shares with you a quick fix to your leaky faucet by watching this video.
