Seals – Some faucets have seals that are necessary to function, and over time they can become worn out, between constant use, and the buildup of sediment, especially here with our hard water. They might need to be cleaned, or replaced.
Broken Plumbing – This isn’t typically the cause, but if there are broken or cracked pipes, they could be causing more pressure, causing the pipes to lea,
