What Causes My Faucets To Drip?
Listening to the dripping sound of a faucet can become extremely annoying after a while. The sound can keep you awake anticipating the next drip.

One reason your faucet may be dripping is because of damaged parts. The washer and other parts, depending on the type of faucet, inside of the tap sees a lot of pressure and can become worn over time. These parts keep the water from flowing and are used every single day. So when you have a drip, worn out parts could be the potential problem. It is best to get a professional to look at it to tell you if you need new parts and inform you of what parts you need to get.
If the water in your faucets drips sporadically, then you may need to look at your water pressure. Does your faucet drip at certain times during the day? If your water pressure is not flowing correctly, then this could cause a back up and the water will begin to leak from various sources. Although this type of drip may not be to serious, if you let it continue on, it could become a serious problem. It is best to lower your water pressure to allow it to flow correctly.
