Oh that leaking faucet!
In a time when water is a precious commodity – especially in California with a serious drought – making sure that all of your faucets are in good condition is essential to save money and water.
Here are some problem areas and quick tips to do repairs on your own. Please call plumber if you're not comfortable with this process. You do not want to create a larger leak by forgetting to turn off your main water, or not tightening the gasket or valve properly.
One of the most typical causes of a leaky faucet is a corroded valve seat. When water sediments collect on the valve seat, the spout will certainly start to leak. It is a smart idea to clean the valve seat on a regular basis to avoid this problem.
