Why Is Your Faucet Leaking All the Time
Do you have a leaky faucet? If so, you’re not alone, and you will need an emergency plumber. A dripping faucet can waste gallons of water each day, and it can be a real hassle to fix.
First, let’s talk about what causes a leaky faucet. The most common reason is that the valve seat has worn out or been damaged by rust and corrosion over time. If you have an old faucet with corroded parts, then replacing them may be all it takes to stop your leak! Another common cause is when the washer inside of your spout gets loose and starts leaking water around its edges; this can happen if there has been some sort of recent plumbing work done where they may not have put everything back together correctly yet (like during construction).
If none of these things seem like they could apply to why my faucet leaks, try turning off both hot and cold handles before putting on any new washers! If that doesn’t work, then you may need to replace some internal parts like the entire spout assembly or even just an old valve seat which has worn out. Another common reason includes replacing one part of a faucet with another (like changing out an old aerator for a new one).
Now that we’ve covered all possible causes of leaking faucets, let’s discuss how to fix them! The first step would be figuring out where exactly in your home it is coming from so that you can make sure nothing else needs attention while fixing this problem. Once you have identified the area(s) most likely causing leaks around your house and/or yard, try turning off both hot and cold handles before putting on any new washers! If that doesn’t work, then you may need some internal parts like the entire spout assembly or even just an old valve seat which has worn out.
