Is your faucet leaking?

One of the most common plumbing issues that homeowners face—is a leaky faucet. Plumbing issues can cause unnecessary problems and an increase in billing if not handled promptly and effectively. In this post, we will discuss some of the most common reasons you may develop a leaky faucet.

Common Reasons For A Leaky Faucet

  • You need to replace your O ring: An O ring is an airtight seal that prevents water from leaking out of the faucet. If the O ring is damaged or loose, the faucet may begin to drip water when it is not in use. Replacing the O ring may prevent further leakage.
  • A broken or damaged seal: The inlet and outlet seals prevent water from leaking. If the seals are damaged or broken, your faucet may leak.
  • Your plumbing system is dysfunctional: If your plumbing system is dysfunctional, it can lead to a wide range of plumbing disasters. A professional will need to inspect your plumbing system to be sure that it is functioning effectively.
  • The water pressure is unstable: If the water pressure is too high, it can cause a backup and may eventually lead to a leaky faucet. A professional will need to examine your plumbing system to determine if your water pressure is too high.
