Have you ever wondered why your single-lever faucet starts dripping after years of use and little maintenance? Chances are really good that the simple reason why is because the ball valve that controls the flow of water from your pipes to your faucet has begun to break down.
If your kitchen faucet is dripping, it’s not only annoying, it can be costly. In addition to running up your water bill, drips may possibly damage the surface of your sink. But a simple leak is easy enough to diagnose and repair – you just need to know what you’re looking for.
Even how expensive, leading manufacturer, best brand, or certified your faucet is; it still undergoes “wear and tear” over time. Nobody wants to wish that their faucet will break, but it is a certain future that you want to be prepared for. One of the problems that can be encountered is with the handle. It may loosen or some screws can cause the problem.
