Everyone can agree that indoor plumbing is a vital aspect in modern living. This is what makes any problems affecting indoor plumbing so demanding to deal with. Any water supply disconnections can be very inconvenient. Leaky faucets are among the most common plumbing problems witnessed at homes. Most people might not think that a leaky faucet is something to be overly concerned about, but think again. A leaky faucet slowly drains your wallet through a ballooning water bill over time.

How do Leaky Faucets Drain Your Wallet?

Leaky faucets can materialize in different ways. For instance, the water might be leaking from the connections with plumbing pipes or more commonly through the head. A leak through the head is easy to spot since a leaking sound can be heard. On the other hand, a leak that is in the faucet's piping and connections can be quite difficult to detect since there is no visible evidence especially for small leaks. By the time you detect this leak, a lot of damage may have been caused as a result.

Undetected leaks from leaky faucets cause damage to the adjacent wall and sink. Most homeowners will see a brown stain around the bottom of the sink where there has been an undetected leaky faucet. This damage can extend to the adjacent wall panels on which the sink is attached. The resulting damage could be expensive to repair.

Together with the annoying dripping sound produced by leaky faucets that drip through the faucet heads, a higher water bill is inevitable. Leaky faucets account for a lot of water waste and therefore a ballooning water bill.

With these expenses brought about by leaky faucets in mind, it is highly important to make sure they are identified and fixed as early as possible to ensure that you avoid unnecessary expenses.
