Dripping faucets

“We will beat any written quotation on any plumbing job” 
 
 Dripping faucets are a common problem, but most people choose to ignore a dripping faucet thinking the costs may be to high or they have a lack of knowledge how it can be
fixed. What most people do not know is that it can be fixed quite simply.

In fact, the repair will usually cost you less than the wasted water on your monthly bill, making the repair should be on the top of your priorities not only because it causes an annoying sound that echoes through out the night, but the costs over a period of time. In most cases a dripping faucet is caused by a worn out seal or washer. Replacing this seal or washer will remedy the problem.

    Keep In Mind

a faucet that leaks one drip per second wastes almost 100 liter of water a month. Over time that adds up and you end up paying for it.

It is important to know that every basin or sink has two sets of controls; the faucet and the shutdown valves below it. If you notice that your faucet is dripping shut off the valves under the basin or sink. this is a easy way to temporarily solve the problem until you contact VIP-Plumbers to do the repair. It is important to fix a dripping faucet in a timely manner to avoid wasting money. This is especially true if you are paying for water from a city supply or if the tap is dripping hot water.

There’s nothing more taunting than a leaky faucet. Just when you think you’ve tightened the faucet as much as it can go…drip. It’s like The Telltale Heart, only with plumbing! Worse, all that water leaking out of your pipes can add up big time when it comes to your monthly water bills. A single dripping faucet can leak up to several liters of water per day, every day!
