It is annoying listening to a leaking tap drip.. drip.. drip.. Not to mention what a waste of water it is.
A leaking tap will never fix itself, it will only get worse and you don’t want to end up with an excess water bill or a plumbing emergency if the leak is ignored.
You may think “I know how to fix a leaking tap... I just need to replace the washer... Why would I call a plumber just to do that?”
Why a Plumber needs to fix a leaking tap.
There is more to fixing a leaking tap than you may think. In most cases, it is more than just the washer causing the tap to leak. Sure, you could replace the washer yourself, but if a leaking tap is not fixed correctly it is likely to start leaking again.
Anything more than replacing a washer yourself may void your insurance coverage.
Yes that’s right. There are several steps that need to be conducted to fix a leaking tap correctly.
At HUTCHINS PLUMBING & GAS we will never just replace a washer. We will always do a complete tap service, which includes:
- Dismantling the tap
- Replacing all washers, “O” rings and fibre washers (yes, there is more than just a Washer..)
- Clean and lubricate the bonnet to make sure it is easy to turn on and off
- Check the tap and reseat, so the washer is sitting on a smooth surface.
- Reassemble and reinstall the tap correctly
Mixers taps work a little differently and have cartridges instead of washers which may require the cartridges be replaced.
We also guarantee complete tap services for 2 years.
Completing all of the steps required should be taken out by a
fully qualified licensed and insured plumber.
You could possibly void your insurance cover if you try to do-it-yourself,
which will cost you a lot more in the long run.
Remember, no plumber should only ever replace the washer to fix a leaking tap.
