Arizona Leaky Faucet and Sink Repair
Does your home have leaky faucets or old, outdated sinks? Are your bathroom sinks cracked or stained? Does the dripping of your kitchen sink keep you up at night? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you need to call Whitton Plumbing, Arizona’s premier plumbing specialists.
Ignoring a leaky faucet can over many years cost you hundreds of dollars in wasted water. The National Sanitation Foundation reports that a faucet that leaks as slowly as one drip a second wastes as much as 2,000 gallons a year in water and cause damage to your sink basin. The cost of these wasted gallons of water quickly adds up, which is why it is important to contact Whitton Plumbing to repair the leaky faucets in your households.
IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT
Leaky faucets also have a negative impact on the environment. Freshwater ecosystems are some of the most diverse, but they are also the most threatened. Dwindling water supplies add to the threat faced by these ecosystems; as water supplies are exhausted, species that make freshwater ecosystems their home must compete with humans for access to freshwater. One of the most damaging and disruptive threats to these ecosystems are the dams and canals that must be built to provide human habitations with freshwater. By fixing your leaky faucet you are helping to take some of the pressure off these fragile ecosystems.
You will also stop the waste of a precious resource by fixing your leaky faucet. Of the 6.7 billion people who inhabit the earth today, 1.2 billion lack access to potable freshwater. By calling Whitton Plumbing to fix your leaky faucet you will help conserve thousands of gallons of this vital resource.
Whitton Plumbing can also fix your cracked and outdated sinks. Sinks can be damaged for a number of reasons. Perhaps a caustic drain cleaner was used to unclog a drain, and this agent scratched and dulled your sink’s enamel. Or maybe you dropped a heavy object into your sink and chipped its finish. Whatever the damage, a sink with scratched, dulled or chipped enamel needs to be refinished. If the sink is not refinished, more of the finishing can fall off as the underlying materials continue to corrode or rust.
You can add five years or more to the lifespan of any sink by having it refinished.
