Does your Faucet drip?


2020 Drain Clean Plumbing is here to help

So you've had a slow faucet drip that you may have already gotten used to. Maybe the sound of the dripping doesn't even bother you anymore.

But did you ever wonder about the impact of an intermittent faucet drip? Conveniently there's a quick and easy way to find out right now! Head to the United States Geological Survey website for a convenient calculator that lets you find out just how much water is going down that drain.

A quick calculation reveals that a faucet that produces only 10 drops per minute can total nearly 350 Gallons in one year. This is equivalent to a jacuzzi tub and if you have more than one faucet leaking... well, you get the picture.

What are your options? Well ignoring it is one, but of course, that's not the best option. A leak will likely get worse over time (surely it won't get better). It clearly puts unnecessary stress on the environment, can cause water damage and calcification to the cabinetry, and ultimately a financial drain (<-- look a pun). Replacement is a great opportunity to update the look of your faucet because if it's leaking it might be outdated. Perhaps it's a newer faucet, maybe a few years old, a quick check with the manufacturer can reveal if it's under warranty! The last option is to replace the faucet parts which can also be a great way to extend the life of the faucet you have now.

Whatever your faucet needs may be, we are here to help! 2020 Drain Clean & Plumbing promises to do this with the utmost respect for your time, space, and budget!
