I have a dripping faucet. What causes that?

Most all faucets have washers in them, usually made of rubber or some other composition material. It rides against a metal seat, coming in and out of contact with it as the faucet is turned on and off. Over time the washer will wear out, letting water escape past it when the faucet is in the closed or off position. On certain types of faucets or valves you can tighten down on how tight it closes, but this is usually a temporary fix at best.

Usually all that needs to be done is to replace the washer(s) and/or rebuild the internal parts of the faucet. You can do this yourself, or call us at Brubaker Inc. at 717-299-5641, or contact us here to schedule a service call.
