A leaky faucet can be far more than the rhythmic dripping in the middle of the night that keeps you awake. Without repair, leaky faucets can waste a lot of water in a very short time and can signal deeper problems with the plumbing in your home — problems that require professional help. Here are a few suggestions for determining the cause and potential solution to your leaky faucet.
First, completely shut off the water to the faucet you’re going to work on. This includes the tap, as well as the lines that come to that fixture from the main line. Otherwise, your kitchen or bathroom may attempt to replicate Old Faithful as you work.
Second, determine what kind of faucet you’re dealing with. There are four very common types of faucets, and each uses a different assembly of parts in order to function properly. Because of the large number of moving parts and seals, the faucet itself is most likely to be the cause of the leak.
Third, determine the site of the leak if possible. With some types of faucet, the site may be identifiable, but the part at fault may not be. In certain cases, replacement parts may do the trick, or a replacement faucet may be in order.
