Bellingham WA Property Inspection (King of the House): Leaky Faucets

While not a serious problem, and one that everyone seems to be able to deal with without anyone freaking out, the leaking faucet can be irritating and wasteful of water. The condition can be at any faucet in the home, you choose: Laundry sink, bathtub, shower, jacuzzi, kitchen sink, bath sink. Many of these fixtures were installed by consumers who bought them on the cheap at home stores. These faucets are seldom designed for exceptional life spans - at least they will not achieve longevity without periodic maintenance and replacement of internal parts. The problem is often visible as dripping from the spout but frequently the issue might be leaking around the faucet, as someone turns it on - as in the photo. The solution is to have the faucet repaired or replaced by a qualified party. That is usually a plumber but some homeowners can do a good job, depending on the guidance they receive and the quality of the products the buy.

Thanks for stopping by.
