The Causes of a Leaky Faucet

There a number of potential factors that can lead to a leaking faucet:
  • You may have worn out washers. Every time you turn on your water, the washer comes into contact with the valve seat. This causes friction, which, over time, will wear out the washer. When the washer wears out, water begins dripping from the spout. In compression faucets, this happens when rubber washers wear out, requiring replacement.

  • You may have a corroded seat valve. The seat valve acts as a connector between the faucet and the spout compression mechanism. As water sediment builds over time, this can lead to corrosion of the valve seat, resulting in leaking around the spout.

  • If your washer and seat valve are intact, you may have a problem with your O-ring. In most faucets, a stern screw holds the handle of a faucet in place. The stern screw attaches to a small disk referred to as an O-ring. If the O-ring loosens or wears out, water may start dripping near the handle of your faucet. Replacing the O-ring will often solve the problem.

  • The improper installation of a washer can also lead to a leaky faucet. Depending on the kind of faucet you have, you may need the assistance of an experienced plumber who can dismantle and repair the problem.

  • Worn out seals can also cause leaking faucets. Over time, seals can wear out due to the buildup of sediment. Since inlet and outlet seals are important parts of a faucet, sediment buildup around the seals can compromise their ability to act effectively.

  • Problems with piping can also cause leaks. Broken or cracked piping, or broken pipe fittings, can result in leaks that affect water pressure. If you've excluded all other potential causes, you may want to contact a plumber to determine if you have a problem with your pipes.
