Water Conservation: Water leak repairs and damage prevention

Last week I met with a customer in Englewood NJ to discuss their roofing project.  While there they showed me their leaking kitchen faucet.  Due to a missing screw on the back of the faucet, the pressure of the water was causing the faucet itself to leak - and not out of the spigget end.  Every time they went to pour themselves a glass of water or wash some dishes their counter top flooded.  A waste of water that threatened to cause some real damage to their cabinets.  After fetching and installing the screw thier faucet issue is no more.  The tip: If you have a leak, repair the faucet before you end up wasting more potable water  - and perhaps needing to repair your entire kitchen.
