When a sink leaks at one drop per second, it can waste 3,000 gallons of water in a year. Plus, that drip-drip-drip sound is certainly not pleasant. When it comes from underneath the sink, it could damage your cabinets or flooring. And from a plumber’s point of view, the problem with a leaky sink is that the issue can only get worse.
You should act in a timely manner when you notice a leak in the sink (or underneath it), and that means more than just putting down a bucket to catch the water. What can you do about a leaky sink, and when should you contact a plumber?
