- Loose Parts
Your faucet is used very frequently, so over time, it isn’t uncommon for some of its inner-workings to come loose. Within your home’s faucets are many smaller moving parts, and any one of them comes loose, it can cause leakage at the handle of the faucet. You may need to tighten these parts of your faucet, or some parts may need to be replaced.
- Worn Out Seals
Disc faucets have inlet and outlet seals which are very important to the way that they function. These seals can be come worn out over time because of sediment build up and frequent use. This could be causing your faucet to leak. our plumbing repair contractors recommend that you have the water sediments regularly cleaned in order to keep your faucet functioning properly, and you may also need to replace seals.
- Broken Plumbing
This is the least common of these three causes, but it is possible that your faucet is leaking because of a broken pipe, broken fitting, or a problem with some other part of your plumbing system. When a pipe in your plumbing system cracks, for instance, it may alter the water pressure throughout your North Carolina home, which can cause your faucet to leak.
