Have you ever been lying in bed wondering why you can hear a drip of water in the bathroom next door? It might not seem like a big deal with a drip every few seconds but over time it can add up. A single drip from a single faucet is enough to make an impact on your water bill. You are also not doing your part to help preserve water allowing it to go straight down the drain. The faucet can be dripping water for several reasons. The most common problem is with the fixture itself and the rubber seals that should be kept in good condition. Many times these rubber gaskets can be replaced by a plumber or you can choose to update the entire faucet with a new one.
Toilet that Keeps Running
When you go use the restroom and you flush the toilet it will push the water through a pipe and out to the sewer. Then the tank that is hanging on the back of the toilet will refill the bowl and then itself full of water. This should happen only after you flush the toilet but it can start to happen intermittently in between. You might hear the tank start to fill again which you might get used to but is best if it is repaired. A dripping sink is one way to waste water but a running toilet happens to waste substantially more. You want to be sure you have a plumber repair the toilet so that you can save on money and conserve water.
