If you’re like most people, you don’t pay your faucets much mind. You just turn the handle on, fill your cup, and go. It can be easy to forget that they’re our only source of fresh water. But, the second a problem occurs, a broken faucet, sink, or spigot will dominate your thoughts. Don’t despair. You’re not alone.
