Kitchen Faucet Leak
What is a Kitchen Faucet Leak?
A kitchen faucet leak involves a slow drip of water from the kitchen faucet itself; in particular, when the faucet handle is in the off position.
What causes my Kitchen Faucet to Leak?
A kitchen faucet leak can be caused by a variety of issues including age, improper installation, and excessive use.
Use and wear over time
The inner components of a kitchen faucet – such as washers, O-rings, cartridges, seals, and valves – are typically made of plastic and brass.
Many of the parts within the kitchen faucet have gears that are exposed to both hot and cold water when the faucet is turned on and off. These gears wear out over time causing a leak to occur.
Rust and Corrosion
Chicagoland’s water supply also carries sediments. If a building’s pipes rust, the faucet can deteriorate quickly. A faucet leak is one possible sign of deterioration.
Low water pressure may be an indication the kitchen faucet is leaking.
When the kitchen faucet is not installed properly or tightened sufficiently, you can expect there to be a leak. To fix this kitchen faucet leak, you will need to either re-install the kitchen faucet or tighten it properly.
