A leaking tap can be such a frustrating problem. Whether it’s the repetitive dripping noise, drip-dropping in your sink or bath, or it’s causing progressive flooding in your home – there are plenty of reasons why you should get it fixed.
Here are five good reasons we can think of why you should get your leaking tap fixed as soon as possible.
1. Avoid Mold And Water Damage
The longer you leave your leaking tap unfixed, the more likely it is that what started as a simple leak, could lead to mold, water damage, and damp.
Mold and damp can cause health issues when left to worsen and fester in your home. Just some of the health issues mold and damp can contribute to and cause includes:
• Breathing issues and asthma
• Skin, eye, and throat irritation
• Nasal stuffiness and sinus problems
These symptoms will be even worse in people who already have allergies or chronic lung illnesses.
Health isn’t the only major concern where mold and damp are concerned. In the long run, having to deal with these problems is only going to cost you more money to sort out.
So take our advice and get your leaking tap fixed first and kill the root of the problem!
2. Upgrade Your Leaking Tap? Why Not!
When your tap is starting to leak, it’s usually recommended to replace the whole faucet head to prevent future problems.
Luckily, here at Worry Free Plumbing, we offer a wide range of different kinds, including brands such as Moen, Delta, and Waltec to name just a few.
Whether you’re looking for a basic replacement tap, or something more custom, slick or fancy, our experts carry a variety of different fixtures in their trucks for you to peruse.
3. It’s Eco-Friendly
Not only is fixing your leaking tap a benefit to you, but to mother nature too. It might not seem like much, but all those frequent little drip drops of water leaking every minute or so really add up.
An average household’s water leakage can account for over 10,000 gallons of wasted water per year.
See for yourself with this drip calculator. By entering how many leaking taps, how many houses, and roughly how often it drips, you can see just how much water is going to waste.
4. Save On Your Water Bill
Mother nature may be suffering from your leaking faucet, but do you know what else is? Your wallet! That’s right, the sooner you get a leak fixed, the more you’ll save on your water bill.
If that’s not as good a reason as any, we don’t know what is!
5. It’s Not Expensive
Speaking of expenses, while a leaking tap is nobody’s idea of fun, it’s actually really cheap and easy to get fixed.
