A small leak could waste anywhere from a few gallons of water to hundreds of gallons over the course of a year. Ace Hardware staff say with hard water especially it is good to change out cartridges as needed in your faucet.

“Faucets in general it can be replaced anywhere from 20 to 25 years before that you’re probably going to change your cartridges out,” said Associate at Ace Hardware with Plumbing Experience, Gideon Basson.
