Water is one of the most erosive natural wonders. As it falls from the sky and runs through rivers and streams out to the ocean, water takes along with it little pieces of earth. Over the course of time, huge canyons and valleys are cut out of the earth because of water. This erosive effect can also be experienced by the brass work of your plumbing. Your faucet is not immune to it one bit.
As water starts to erode a faucet head, drips and leaks will begin to seep through the cracks. Often times a drip or leak can go unnoticed for quite a long time before anyone takes notice. The problem is that if a leak goes on too long, it can actually ruin a faucet completely beyond repair. You may have to replace it altogether. Did you know that drippy faucets waste about $20 a month in water? With several of those around the house, that is quite a lot of money that you could be saving.
While leaky faucets are extremely common to see, they are also fairly easy to fix! To start, you will need wrenches, a cloth, and the ability to follow these instructions. First, turn off the water supply to the faucet. Second, loosen the nut holding the faucet in place with a wrench. Make sure to use a cloth to avoid scratching. Once the head is removed, peek inside at the sealant washer. Is it out of place, is it warped? You may need to replace it if it won't fit back into place. Then, replace the head. Your leak should be gone!
