The old commercial said it was the drip, drip, drip of stomach acid. All of us who are home owners in the Seattle area know that the word could mean dripping from pipes in your home. Dripping in and of itself may be innocuous in and of itself, but it sure can get out of control and cause big-time problems!
Here are some troubleshooting tips –
1. Make sure that your toilet valve is NOT stuck.
2. Inspect the area around the base of the water heater.
3. Blow in a call to the water company to make sure that the meter is not the culprit.
4. If you are able, shut off the water main within your home.
