The most common plumbing issue that people face is water leaks. It can start off as a small and annoying drop every other second and develop to a constant stream that has no end. At 5 Star Best Plumbing, we understand the headache that a leaky faucet can cause.
Effects of a leaking faucet
Leaky faucets have more effects on your home than anyone thinks. If you have a small leak that drips one drop every second, it leads to 5 gallons of wasted water per day. Imagine that multiplied in a week or a month. Many homeowners neglect the fact that a leaky faucet causes such a large amount of waste. This results in a much higher utility bill.
Another big problem is that a small leak usually develops into one much bigger. If you’ve noticed a leak in your home that started a month ago, you can bet that it’s wasting even more water today. Water easily escapes through your faucet if the internal components are not working correctly. As more time passes, it becomes easier for more water to pass through as it eats away at the defective component (usually a washer).
If you’re looking for faucet repair, our professionals can handle it easily. A plumber will make it out to your home as soon as possible and fix that leak.
