What Causes a Leaky Faucet?
Leaky faucets are caused by a few very simple problems. It’s usually just good old wear and tear, in one form or another. Here are some of the common causes of leaky faucets.
A worn-out washer. In a compression faucet, every time you turn on the water, there’s friction between your faucet handle’s rubber washer and valve seat. This friction slowly wears away at the washer, making it harder for the washer to do its job. This is fixed by replacing the old washer with a new one of the correct size.
Valve seat corrosion. The valve seat connects the spout and faucet. If the valve seat hasn’t been cleaned of sediment in a while, it’s possible that it’s begun to corrode. A corroded valve seat will present as leaking around the spout.
O ring problems. In cartridge faucets, regular use can wear out a piece called the O ring. This ring is located with the stem screw, which is what holds the faucet handle in place. A worn-out O ring will cause leaking from the handle. If your handle is leaking water, you likely need to replace the O ring.

So what are the reasons not to ignore your leak?
Leaks waste money. Even a slow leak can waste over a hundred gallons of water each month. That’s a lot of water doing absolutely nothing for you and your wallet.
Moisture from leaky faucets attracts pests. From rodents to roaches, pests need a source of water to live comfortably. Your leaky faucet could be just the thing that makes them decide to stay. After all, they can rely on that to keep them hydrated. Do you really want to be a pest problem?
And last, but not least, drippy faucets are really annoying. If the money and risk of bugs aren’t enough, maybe the lost sleep will convince you. Quit losing rest at night while listening to the drip drip drip of your money going down the drain.
