Do you have any leaky faucets in your home? Here are the signs to watch out for:
The type of leak that causes the faucet to drip into the sink is the most noticeable and least likely to cause damage. However, the sound isn’t just annoying; it also wastes a lot of water.
If you neglect to fix a leaky faucet that drips at a rate of 30 drops per minute, you’re wasting nearly three gallons of water per day. This may not sound like much, but after a year, that’s over 1,000 gallons of wasted water!
Water Puddles, Rust and Mold
Water puddles can form at the base of your faucet, around the sink drain and on the cabinet floor below the faucet. When exposed to excess water, metal components can start to turn a rusty red color. Organic materials, including the wooden base of your under-sink cabinet, can begin to rot or mold in response to the dripping water. These side effects of a leaky faucet impact the appearance of your sink and cabinet, making them look rundown.
Higher Water Bills
Some faucet leaks aren’t as obvious as the previous examples and leave little evidence behind. Water bills that are inexplicably higher than usual are one sign.
To quickly test for faucet leaks, go outside and find the water meter on the wall of your home. Read the numbers carefully. Then refrain from using any water for two hours. Return to the meter and if the numbers have changed, there’s a leak somewhere. It might be from a faucet, toilet, water heater, or other point along your plumbing.
Does one particular faucet squeak when you turn the tap on or off? The knob might just need some lubrication. However, squeaky faucets can also be a sign of a bigger underlying problem.
