Water bills are some of the most expensive bills homeowners have to pay. Between the dishwasher and the amount of water used for flushing toilets and taking showers, there are tons of gallons of water consumed in each home. When you notice a leak, it’s unsettling to think that you’re paying for water that you aren’t even using. Once you’ve noticed this problem, it’s no wonder that you want to get it resolved as soon as possible, that’s why you’ve contacted the Top Rated Local® plumber of Kings Park to take care of it. While our team can guarantee a repair for any issue that you’re having with your plumbing, we love being able to provide you with an explanation as well. Here are a few reasons that you might notice your bathtub faucet leaking.

Water Pressure

If there’s a consistent amount of water dripping from your bathtub faucet, it could be that your water pressure is too high. This will usually be the case if drips are happening continuously or if they’re happening during times where water is being used at a high rate.

Old Washers

Faucets contain a pair of washers, one plastic one metal, that close together. As time goes on, these washers can become old, crack or lose the seal that it has. If this is the instance for your dripping faucet, these drips will be less frequent or at least of a lesser volume. A temporary fix would keep the leak from being as heavy, but eventually this would need to be repaired.

If neither of these issues solve the leak, then it’s likely another issue with your plumbing. If that’s the case, then you can count on our master plumbers to get the job done quickly and efficiently. If you aren’t sure what’s causing the issue, call us today and have us come out and inspect your faucet.
