It's a word we all know, an infamous term, a dangerously addictive habit that somehow feels both satisfying and frustrating: procrastination. No matter how much we like to deny it, everyone of us has procrastinated at one time or another. However, some procrastination is relatively harmless, while other procrastination can actually be dangerous. Take, for example, a student putting off studying for a moderately important test. It's not a good habit to get into, but the student will probably scrape by--even if he or she has to spend a night or two cramming!
On the other hand, procrastinating on something big--like fixing the car--can be harmful, both to your health and to your wallet. Plumbing problems are a good example of this: procrastinating, in this case, is a big issue
The truth about plumbing problems is that some of them may start out small, but they can quickly grow into something expensive, time-consuming, and even dangerous. Of course, at first, it seems easy to put off fixing a small plumbing issue. If cash or time are short, the problem can wait, right? Well, not exactly. Even something as apparently small and everyday as a leaky faucet can quickly turn into a plumbing nightmare. The key is to avoid procrastination; after all, a big plumbing issue isn't something that a night of cramming or a quick-fix can solve! Remember that even a little maintenance can go a long way, and that keeping a close eye on the everyday functions of your house's plumbing can save you in the long run.
