We’ve all had that faucet with the small leak. We learn to tune out the annoying drip, drip, drip sound to the point where it is simply background noise. After all, it’s just a little drip – how much can it really do? Turns out, quite a lot, which is why it’s important to hire plumbing experts, like the ones at Carney Plumbing Heating & Cooling for repair.
While all you see from your faucet is a small drip, the truth is that water adds up. In fact, you can lose anywhere from 5 to 30 gallons of water per day with a persistent leak. If you pay for your water, you are paying for a whole lot of water that is just going down your drain.
A constant leak will inevitably cause some kind of water damage and corrosion. In a sink, a constant leak can lead to the development of rust on metal components; it will also eat away at the porcelain of your sink’s bowl. Should the leak be located near or in walls or ceilings, the surrounding building materials, including wood structural pieces and drywall, may be destroyed.
Other Problems with Your Plumbing System
When there’s an issue with your plumbing system, even a small leak, other problems with your system, or its connections, valves and joints, can also develop problems. It’s not worth potentially creating more issues just to avoid repairing one issue.
