A leaking faucet can seem harmless now but may end up wasting hundreds of gallons of water per year and costing you money if left unfixed. Our highly trained technicians will work with you to determine the cause of any leaks and advise you on the best way to fix them.

What Causes Leaks

You may be surprised to learn that there are a lot of reasons behind your leaking faucet. The following are just a few of the most common causes of leaks.

High Water Pressure

Faucets are designed in such a way that they stop the pressurized water that flows into your plumbing until you turn or lift the knob of your faucet. However, if the water pressure in your home is too high, it can force the water out past the various controls, most of which may have been designed for much lower water pressure.

Hard Water

When your water supply has a high concentration of hard mineral particles, you will notice limescale buildup. This leads to problems with your fixtures. Limescale buildup can force components like O-rings, valve seats, and seals out of place, leading to leaks.

Thermal Expansion

Water expands when it reaches a point just above freezing. This phenomenon can affect the more pliable components of your faucet which can result in leaks.

Improper Washer Installation

Washers are designed to keep excess water at bay. However, an improperly sized or installed washer can allow small amounts of water to escape. This issue can lead to leaks.
