If your bathtub has a leak, it's not that difficult to fix it yourself. Over time, your tub drain will start to corrode. Eventually it will start leaking. If your bathtub faucet also has a leak and is dripping, it will accelerate this process. Your bathtub will start leaking much sooner.
Fix a Leaking Faucet
This is what happens when you
don't fix a leaking faucet
The hardest part of the job is finding where the washer is. It is always somewhere in the faucet assembly. Every faucet is different, but if you take the faucet apart you'll find the washer.
Is Your Bathtub Leaking?
When a pipe is leaking, water can run along the pipe and then drip in a different location, further complicating the problem of finding the source of the leak. The longer the leak is left unattended the more expensive the repair will be. If caught soon enough, it may be a simple repair. You may be able to paint over damaged drywall. If water damage continues over a long period of time, the cost to repair will escalate. You may need to replace flooring, ceilings, pipes, and remove mold and mildew that has grown and built up.
