A dripping faucet is a common home plumbing problem. Leaving a dripping faucet will cost you money and waste water. A steady drip can drive you crazy and waste 212 gallons of water per month. That money is literally going down the drain. A dripping hot water faucet is even more money because you’re also paying to heat the water before it goes down the drain. If you don’t know how to do the repair yourself call in a professional. The cost of the repair will not only save you money but help to conserve water.
