The Trusted Tap Repair Plumbers in Sydney

Taps are among the household items we always rely on to get the job done. We turn it on to wash vegetables, drink water, wash our hands or even water the plants outside via a connected garden hose. 

This shows that the humble tap helps us so much in our daily lives, and it would be a real problem if tap problems are left alone. Leaking taps are inconvenient and can cause issues like increasing your monthly water bill. On the other hand, leaks in the tap’s pipes can cause water damage, costing you more on repairs than getting it fixed the first time around.

Are you experiencing leaking taps in your kitchen, bathroom or any other room with a water faucet in it?

Whenever you have tap problems, you can always rely on Mr Drains, the plumbers servicing Sydney since 1988. All our plumbers are fully licensed and insured, carrying a $20m public liability policy, giving you and your property that extra protection. They also get consistent training on new solutions and technology in plumbing, ensuring to provide customers with quality solutions that work.

Causes of leaking taps

Do you hear continuous dripping of water in your kitchen lately?

If yes, this is a common symptom of a leaking tap. It may look minor, but the damages it can bring can depend on the issue it has within its pipes.

Here are the common causes of leaking taps

  • Loose or worn-out O-ring – the O-ring responsible for holding the water faucet’s handle in place is either damaged or loose due to regular use. It is commonly happening to cartridge faucets.
  • Worn-out washers – friction between the washer and the valve seat can wear down the washer through time.
  • Water pressure problems – water pressure can heavily affect how much water can drip and how it happens. Having water pressure problems means either the water flowing from your tap is too weak or too strong.
  • Corroded valve seat – the corrosion is often caused by the buildup of water sediments.
  • Broken parts – if you see leaks in your pipes underneath your sink, this can mean you have broken pipes requiring attention from a professional plumber. 
  • Faulty installation – leaks happen due to incorrect installation of parts like when the connector is not tight enough to keep the water from going anywhere, or there’s overtightening, breaking the seal on the pipes.

When do you need tap repair or replacement?

Once you experience these symptoms, it’s time to consider getting a tap repair or replacement:

  • Water dripping or leaking
  • Low water pressure
  • Slow water flows
  • Loose Handle

There’s always the option of trying DIY solutions. However, it’s always best to consult with expert plumbers in Australia to ensure your tap is assessed correctly, which will avoid mistakes that can cause problems in the long run.

Hiring reliable plumbers can avoid problems that will be hard to handle in the future. Underestimating a leaky tap or leaving dripping water alone can bring in a considerable waste of money. You might not realize it, but a leaky faucet can potentially waste up to 20 gallons of water every day. If you look at this on a monthly scale, it could reach at least 600 gallons of water every month. In the end, all the wasted water will reflect on your monthly water bill.

Aside from a spike in water bills, a leaky faucet also invites a spike in house repair bills. Leaving dripping water, especially if the leaks are happening underneath your sink, for so long will only lead to damages on your floor or even ceiling damage if the sink is on the floor above.
