Signs Of Tap Leakage
Constant Overnight Dripping
As a significant sign of tap leakage, constant overnight dripping can always cause sleeping residents’ uncontrollable anger. Here are some tips if you find yourself no longer able to bear the never-ending ‘drip, drip, drip’ from your tap.
Find a piece of string which has sufficient length to reach the bottom of the sink. Tie one end to the tap. Then, match the line to the faucet and make sure the water drip downwards along the string. Instead of letting water sink into the piping system, we advise you to put the other end of the string into a basin, to reduce the water wastage caused by the tap leakage. By doing so, you could enjoy a quiet night sleep without disturbance. However, this is only a temporary solution.
Does Not Turn Off Completely
It will be a panicky situation when you turn on the tap with the water running and running but can’t turn it off anymore! You may feel your water bill is rising rapidly while the water from the leaking faucet keeps running in the high speed. You will also have a sense of guilt for all the water wasted.
Visible Leaks From Various Locations Such As Valves Or Bases
It is also highly possible that you find not only your tap dripping but also the valve and base all around.
What To Do If You Encounter A Leaking Tap
The easiest thing to prevent the water from wasting in vain is to shut off the valve. A very simple method.
Do you manage to find a plug on the pipe below the dripping tap? To stop the water, you could use a screwdriver to turn the valve. If you don't have a screwdriver in your home, just find the nearest stopcock and turn off the supply there. Turn on the tap to make sure no water is coming out before you start to dismantle it!
To save all your belongings, you have better clear the items nearby as soon as you detect the issue. To place a basin in your sink or any places that are dripping is always a wise choice. You can save water and your furniture at the same time!
Do Not Attempt To Fix Yourself If You Do Not Know Problem
The Household taps that we use can be categorized into four types: compression washer, disk, ball, and cartridge. Because of the different components of each category, cases of tap leakages may have various causes, and they should be solved in different ways, depending on the type of tap you are handling.
Remember the original position if you are trying your best to fix it. Otherwise, the tap leakage may continue bothering you, or even worse, you may destroy your tap!
It is probably the best for you to call a plumber for help. While some of the tap leakage problems can be dealt with through convenient and straightforward DIY methods, the others may require specialized skills and equipment from a professional plumber.
