How Leaky Faucets Cost Homeowners

Drip. Drip. Drip. A leaky faucet can be really irritating. It can also cost you more than you think.

Many different things can contribute to making a kitchen or bathroom faucet leak. Very often, it’s caused by a worn-out rubber washer, which can be a very quick and inexpensive fix. In some cases, it’s something more complicated. It’s difficult to tell until a professional plumber takes a look at it. Regardless of the cause, you should get it repaired quickly to avoid unnecessary costs from letting it continue.

A dripping faucet can actually damage your sink, creating rust stains or calcium deposits that may mean you have to replace the entire fixture. It also costs a lot of money in wasted water bills. Curious how much that leak is adding to your water bill? The U.S. Geological Survey created a calculator to show you how much water you lose, based on the number of drips per minute.
