Bob Cole's Tips
- A leaky faucet that drips 30 times a minute wastes almost 3 gallons of water per day or
more than 1,000 gallons per year. That's a lot, especially in our desert environment!
- One of the more common causes of a leaky faucet is a small rubber washer. Be sure to
replace the worn washer with one of the correct size and type.
- Washerless faucets that are leaking may need to have O-rings or inlet and outlet seals
