A leaky or dripping faucet is certainly not something that is uncommon. Every household or commercial property has likely had a dripping faucet at some point. While these small drops might not seem like a big deal, there are plenty of issues that can be caused by or made worse by a dripping faucet. Here at A Step Above Plumbing Inc., we want to be your plumber of choice when it comes to plumbing issues both large and small. If you have a dripping faucet, we want to help you avoid the problems that come along with it, including:

1.  Wasted water. Even though the amount of water wasted from a dripping faucet seems small, the drops add up! There are nearly 10,000 gallons of water wasted each year from a small drip. You can do your part to shrink that number by having a dripping faucet repaired quickly.

2.  Higher water bills. Whether you use your water or let it run down the drain, the water company will charge you the same. That means that your dripping faucet is water wasted that you need to pay for.

3.  Damage to your home. Drips and leaks can damage their surroundings. Some drips, particularly if you have hard water, can stain and discolor fixtures over time.

4.  Stress/frustration. The sound of a dripping faucet isn’t just annoying, it can cause you stress. With our help, we can determine why your faucet is dripping and help stop the incessant noise.

If you have a dripping faucet, we urge you to get it taken care of sooner rather than later. For more information or to make an appointment, please contact us today.
