Homeowners should examine their bathroom faucets and plumbing in the bathroom that is exposed every month, at minimum to determine if small leaks are emerging. If the homeowner finds the presence of a leak, it has to be addressed immediately.

Before spending hundreds of dollars for plumbing services There are a few ways that homeowners can employ to get rid of the leak or figure out whether the faucet requires replacement.

If you have a bathroom sink, the source of water will be located at the bottom of the feed pipe that runs from an exterior wall up to the tap as well as in the basement, at the main valve for water.

If there are tiny valves located at the base of your feed pipes then turn them until they're tight enough to stop the water flow. If there aren't any valves at the bottom of the feed pipe then water has to be shut off at the point of origin within the basement.
