Ahh, plumbing repairs. This is the impending doom of every homeowner. One minute, everything’s working in order then the next is a roster of chaos. Nobody wants to deal with these things, yet it has to be done before it got way too out of hand.
Some homeowners like to play hero for a bit of time. After all, what can’t a few twists and turns of the wrench and some Teflon tape fix?
A temporary fix is okay, alright. But does it work in the long run? Think and look into the bigger picture. You risk getting yourself into a problem that can be harder to deal with.
Read on and find out the dangers and other hazards of not taking care of plumbing problems as soon as they sprung out.
- A costly water bill
Putting off repairs doesn’t save you money. It actually does the opposite. So think about that leaky faucet you can’t even do something about. You think that the bucket may offer a temporary solution, but what if it gets full in the middle of the night? Clean usable water just goes down the drain for naught. And of course, this can be affirmed by next month’s water bill arriving on your mail. Getting that leaky faucet repaired is a fraction of a cost of what you have to pay for all that wasted water.
- The likelihood of mold plus other ghastly costs
A leaky faucet is the least of your worries, at this point. If a leak occurs anywhere in the pipes along your supply line, you are in for serious trouble. Leaks occurring in far more obscure places can be the cause of mold growth, which in turn, can rot woodwork in the home. A rotten woodwork will mean ripping out and replacing all affected areas, like wooden ceiling, floors or walls. The cost is too much. So, fix the wound before it worsens.
- A complete waste of precious resource
Earth is made up of three quarters of water. But not all of it is potable or safe to consume. Without fixing a leak, you’re not just wasting water. You’re wasting a resource that some people can’t even afford. Fixing that leak goes beyond just the cost. It’s a responsibility that every person owes to being a resident of this planet.
