A leaky sink faucet can cost you a lot of money. When you think about how long it takes for an occasional drip to become a small stream of water, you realize just how much water can be wasted in that time. If you have a small drip happening in your tub, and a small drip happening to the spigot in the garden, you are looking at hundreds of gallons of wasted water each year. Now think about what that has been doing to your water bill. Faucet repair can be fairly cheap to replace when you compare the cost that could arise from ignoring it. The quote for repair is far less than the cost of dealing with water damage or mold. The average Irvine home uses roughly 70 gallons of water, per person, per day. When you have a leaky sink faucet in your home, you are tacking on an additional 10 to 15 percent increase in water. The longer a leak exists the more damage it is doing to the area that is leaking. Seals can be broken and cause water to leak behind cabinets and surfaces causing expensive water damage and mold. The leak can cause an increase in pressure that will cause a breach. You will then end up losing even more water each day, and having a potential flood.

It is recommended to have faucets in your Irvine home inspected or repaired every 2 to 3 years. This will help to keep them running their very best for as long as possible. Most sink faucets have an average lifespan of 15 to 20 years. When it is time to maintain, repair, or replace your faucets or fixtures let Pristine Plumbing get the job done for you.

There are a number of reasons as to why the faucets in your Irvine home could be dripping.

Why Do Faucets Drip or Leak?

Dripping Sink Faucet Irvine

Mineral deposit in local water sources tends to be one of the most major culprits. Hard water will calcify the insides of your pipes and faucets and could change the water pressure causing it to be too low or spray too high. This is a very popular issue with shower heads as well. Broken parts inside of faucets are very common and can be repaired or replaced depending on how bad they are damaged. Valves, washers, nuts and bolts will begin to wear down over time and cause a leak.

What if My Caulking, Sealing, or Grout Is Damaged?

A leaky sink faucet or spout can affect grout and caulk causing them to break seals and allow water to seep in. Caulking and grout are very important because their purpose is to create protective barriers and keep water from going where it is not supposed to. If you notice tears, cracks, stains, discoloration, or peeling away of your caulk or grout it may be time to repair or replace it. Replacing caulk or grout is extremely labor intensive, requires special tools, experience, and knowledge and can be expensive and time consuming to repair and replace if done incorrectly. Pristine Plumbing has the experience, training and tools to fix any water damaged areas of your home, and fix any issues with caulking and sealings.

How Bad Is Water Damage?

Irvine residents and business owners should never ignore water damage. When a sink faucet is leaking, or a seal is broken, water can get into crevices and damage walls, cabinets, flooring, and stone. Water that seeps into drywall, insulation, wood, or certain flooring materials can spore mole in as little as 48 hours. Water can damage electrical wiring, destroy flooring and furniture. A small leak can go for a long time undetected and cause enough damage to require a lot of demo and removal, and can even displace you and your family for a couple of days. Don’t risk mold, water damage, and costly repairs. Schedule routine sink faucet and drain inspection every 2 to 3 years with Pristine Plumbing.
