Why Is My Faucet Dripping?

If you’ve ever been plagued by a leaky faucet, you’re probably familiar with the sound of water constantly dripping. A leak doesn’t just cost your sanity – it also costs you money! There are a few causes for sink drips. It’s crucial to have the problem corrected before it contributes to any more water wastage.

When there’s a problem with your plumbing, Axsom Air is here to help! Our team is lucky to have served Natchitoches and surrounding areas for over 25 years. Keep reading to learn a few reasons for a leaky faucet and how professional bathroom plumbing services can help.

Causes For Leaky Faucet Repairs

Every homeowner will experience a plumbing issue at some point. Although dripping sinks may seem like a straightforward problem, many things can cause the hassle. Thankfully, each cause has its own solution!

Broken O-Rings

An O-ring is a small disc located in the faucet of a sink. The device attaches to a stem screw to hold the faucet handle in place. Over time, O-rings can wear down and become loose or broken. When damage occurs, your sink may release water in small increments, creating a leak.

Corroded Valve Seats

The valve seat connects your faucet to a spout. As you use your sink, sediment and minerals can build up in the valve seat and cause corrosion. When this occurs, the device will not remain watertight and will leak. A professional plumber can help replace this part of your sink to prevent water waste.

Damaged Washers

When washers are damaged or not installed correctly, your sink’s packing nut may loosen. The handle of your sink may start to drip as a result. The faulty part can be replaced to correct the issue, but the dripping may continue if it’s the wrong size.

Water Pressure Issues

When there’s an issue with your water pressure, you may notice your sink drips during specific times of the day. The same problem can occur if the handle is positioned a certain way. An irregularity with your water pressure may cause leaks throughout your home. You should contact a plumber to correct the issue before it worsens.

Signs You Need Bathroom Plumbing Services

A leaky faucet can be a standalone issue, but it can also be a tell-tale sign of a plumbing issue. If one goes undetected, it could negatively affect your household. A few signs you may need plumbing repairs are:

  • Your sink is slow-draining
  • Water is back flowing from your drain
  • You have no hot water
  • Your water is discolored or foggy
  • Drains are bubbling or gurgling
  • Your water bill is unusually high
  • You hear the sound of running water consistently

Your plumbing system can’t verbally communicate with you, but it will show signs when something is amiss. Regardless of the issue that’s present, a reliable plumber will be able to help solve the problem. It’s crucial to fix any errors to prevent damage to your pipes and fixtures.
