Most plumbing problems that occur in homes can be easily fixed. The biggest benefit, however, is that the repair costs are very reasonable.
While most people find dripping faucets irritating, what many people don’t realize is leaks can also be expensive. Leaks can sometimes develop in the sinks and showers in basements, or in other areas, and go unnoticed. Even in areas more obvious, homeowners often don’t realize the amount of money being lost, and neglect prompt repairs. Water leaks should always be repaired as soon as possible.
Most leaks can be repaired easily, and inexpensively, and are generally caused by simple problems. There are a few basic causes of water leaks, such as problems with worn out washers, broken valve seats, corroded O rings, or broken pipes. These are some of the first things repairmen look for when dealing with leaking faucets.
