Why Is My Faucet Dripping?

Dripping faucets can cause your home to waste 200+ gallons of water every month* The EPA reports leaky faucets that release one drop a second waste 3,000 gallons a year, or 250 gallons a month. This can lead to unnecessary spikes in your water bill. Beyond the waste, leaking faucets can also be a sign that there are other plumbing problems — which can be costly in the long run.

While faucet leaks and drips can be caused by various factors, some of the most common include:

  • Defective O-rings – Over time, the O-ring (part of the mechanism that keeps the faucet handle in place) can loosen or wear out. If left unrepaired, defective, loose, or damaged O-rings can cause faucets to drip near the handles.
  • Old Washers – Every time you turn on the faucet, the washer is pushed against the valve seat, causing it to wear out from friction. You’ll notice dripping around the spout if the washer is faulty.
  • Damaged Valve Seats – As the compression connection between a faucet and spout, the valve seat can corrode due to the buildup of sediment. If the valve seat is broken, water can leak from the spout.
  • Faulty Washer Installation – Washers need to be precise in order to work properly. If a washer is an incorrect size, it will cause noticeable leaks.

While a leaky faucet can be annoying, these small leaks and drips can lead to more damage than just a higher water bill if left unrepaired. Leaks can also discolor the sink, tub, marble, stone, or porcelain. They can also cause fixtures to be damaged beyond repair, and you then have to replace the entire faucet, bathtub, or vanity area due to erosion or discoloration.

Our faucet repair experts will take the time to inspect your sinks, showers, and tubs and fix your leaky faucets, but also take the time to address any larger plumbing issues.

Leaky Faucet Repair and Replacement

Proper plumbing is a crucial part of a functioning household or business. Malfunctioning faucets in the bathroom or kitchen can disrupt your entire day. A small leak can be causing damage that is unseen. It is best to have any leaky or broken faucets repaired or replaced right away by a professional plumber to conserve water and avoid more extensive water damage.

Additionally, if the faucets, or hose bibs, on the outside of your home leak, they will attract mice, flies, and ants and the cost of dealing with these pests will be much more expensive than the cost of repairing the faucets.

  • Leaky faucet repair for sinks, showers, and tubs
  • Kitchen faucet replacement
  • Shower faucet replacement
  • Bathtub faucet replacement
  • Outdoor faucet replacement
