Drip, drip, drip… imagine that you are trying to fall asleep with that sound going. There are few things that are more irritating at night than a dripping faucet, especially if there is nothing that you can do about it. With age, seals start leaking, so it is usually an inevitable thing as faucets age. Besides the fact that it is annoying to listen to the dripping of a faucet, it also wastes a lot more water than you expect. Just one drop every second can add up to 3000 gallons of water in a single year’s time.
Getting a new faucet will naturally be a quick and simple fix, but in some cases, you can save a lot of money by just replacing the seals that are failing. You don’t really need to be a plumber to do the work, but sometimes it might not be that easy to pinpoint exactly where the problem lies.
