A dripping faucet can be somewhat annoying, but many people feel they have the situation under control. Close the bathroom door before you go to sleep, and suddenly the dripping sound is no longer a bother, right? Well, while this may be true in your particular circumstance, the fact is that a dripping faucet can be a sign of a serious problem that requires immediate repair or replacement of the unit itself. And delaying sink repair also means wasting a lot of water, which is not only problematic for your monthly bills but also depletes our environmental resources.

Think that small drip is no big deal? Even a dripping faucet that seems to be no major concern can waste gallons of water a day. In fact, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, a faucet that drips only a small amount once every minute may waste up to 34 gallons of water a year. It turns out that a lot of homes in the United States have a problem with wasted water due to leaks, with some homes wasting up to 10,000 gallons of water per year. And while some of these leaks may be located underneath the property or behind walls (a problem that may be caught during annual plumbing maintenance), many leaks are visible but disregarded by the residents.
Besides the potential utility cost and the drain on the environment, you should also consider the potential impact on the fixture itself. If the problem is a worn seal or a corroded valve, it may eventually disintegrate or corrode to the point that water floods the fixture. And the added stress on the fixture can also take away from its lifespan.
Regardless of the size of the leak, you should keep in mind that repairing a leak is generally a job reserved for professionals. Professionals have the tools and expertise to diagnose the problem as quickly as possible and perform the necessary repairs with utmost accuracy.
