  • Corroded parts. A tap has several parts, like valve seat, that connects the faucet and the spout which can corrode due to accumulation of water residue, resulting in leakage.

  • Constant friction. The friction caused during each constant of washer use can cause it to wear out and misinstalled that leads to dripping faucet. This type of leak is usually found in a compression faucet.

  • Loose or worn out O-Ring. Again, constant use of a small disc attached to a stem screw that holds the handle of a faucet in place, called O-Ring, can decrease its ability to seal cause it to lose and drips are impossible to avoid.

  • Incorrect installation. The washer that doesn’t have the right size or correctly installed will result in leaky faucet.

  • Different types of tap. Some type of taps are more likely leak and worn out causing dripping and leakage. Some have more complicated parts.
