There is no greater nuisance around the house than faulty plumbing. It can be noisy, messy and costly if left unattended. Large problems like burst pipes require extensive work inside the walls to repair. But for a simple dripping sink a small repair job by a qualified professional is all it takes. The work can be done quickly and will eliminate the annoyance while keeping your water bills down and your sink clean and dry when you want it that way.
It’s not just annoying, it’s expensive and a plumbing nightmare. It’s that drip you hear coming from any and all faucets in your home. Just how expensive is that small drip coming from your sink?

Think of it this way: if your faucet drips once every second every day, all day then it would only take 4.5 hours to reach one gallon of water. On an average day, you would waste 5 gallons of water or more shockingly 2,082 gallons per year. Now multiply that if you have more than one leaky faucet in your home.

With all the people on earth relying on the same, small supply of water, it only makes sense that we preserve and conserve our water. Additionally, monitoring the amount of water you use will assist you in saving money on your water and energy bills. Continue reading
