Calgary Plumbing:Taking Care of your Faucets
Some people find the dripping of a faucet soothing. Other people think of them as an annoying expense! Dripping faucets are probably the most common plumbing problem in homes; there are so many small things that can go wrong and cause a leaky faucet. Fortunately, this most common of problems is also easily dealt with without hiring anyone to do it for you. So what can you do about a leaky faucet?
If you notice a leaky faucet, don’t ignore it. Leaky faucets waste a lot of water and can cause moisture build up around the area which can cause things like mold and mildew as well as a general mess.
Then, check out the area under the sinks for leaking and dampness. A small leak can waste between fifteen and twenty gallons which is expensive and can cause damage to the faucets, floors and cabinets surrounding the sink. Found it? Good.
Most leaks are actually caused by a worn out or simply dirt seal in the faucet. All you have to do is clean the seals or replace them. If the seal is broken or completely worn out, it will require replacement and you can usually get a new seal at your local hardware store.
That’s all! If after you replace the seals and the faucet is still leaking, you may have other problems and that means that you may have to call in a plumber to identify and repair the problem.
