The Surprising Dangers of Not Fixing a Leaky Faucet

Water is a precious resource that shouldn’t be wasted, so there’s nothing more frustrating than a sink with a leaky faucet. Not only will it use up water unnecessarily but, because municipalities charge for it, it’ll end up costing you big time.

A single leaking faucet can waste up to twenty-three liters of water — that’s almost one and a half times the amount of water in your office watercooler. There are also some surprising ways a leaky faucet can cost you your hard earned cash.

Not only will you pay more for water consumption, but you’ll also pay more for your water tax… which is directly linked to how much water your household uses. So even if you’re not using up those twenty-three liters, you’re still going to be paying for them.

A leaking faucet can also mean leaking pipes, which can leak into your walls and eventually damage the structural foundation of your home. Leaky faucets and pipes can also cause a buildup of mold and mildew, which can cost and arm and a leg to get out of your house and can even cause some serious health issues.

Paying to fix your house’s foundation, or visiting your doctor, will cost you a whole lot more time and money than fixing your leaky faucet. Something most people don’t realize.
