What Is Causing My Faucet to Leak?
Leaky faucets are a common household problem. In many cases, the cause of the leaking can be traced to one or two parts that need to be replaced or repaired. Here are some common causes of leaky faucets:
- Worn out washers: A worn out rubber or Teflon washer is often the culprit behind a leaky faucet. The washer can become brittle or cracked over time, leading to water escaping through the cracks and dripping down around the spout.
- Corroded valves: Over time, metal parts in your faucet can become corroded or clogged with mineral deposits. This can cause the valve to become loose and unable to stop water from flowing out of the faucet.
- Faulty seals: The seal between the handle, stem, and spout of a faucet can become worn out or damaged over time, allowing water to escape through the gaps. To fix this problem, the old seal must be removed and replaced with a new one.
In addition to these common causes, there are other more complex problems that may be causing your faucet to leak. If you’re unable to identify and fix the problem yourself, it’s best to call our professional plumbers to take a look and diagnose the issue.
