Drip, Drip, Drip

A steadily dripping faucet can waste gallons of water over the course of a month. Generally the repair is simply a matter of replacing a worn washer; however, in some faucets it can be almost impossible to get to the washer. This can be particularly true with tub and shower faucets, which are often built into the wall of the tub or shower surround.

If you have a dripping faucet which is beyond your skill to repair and you don't have the money to get a plumber in to do the repair, don't despair. Simply set a clean bucket under the faucet to capture the water and use it for such tasks as watering plants or washing floors.
