Leaking Taps

A leaking tap is one of the most annoying things any homeowner could have. It can cost one a lot of money in terms of water bills, not forgetting the damage it can cause to your home. Leaking taps can occur in any home, whether old or new and a lot of water is usually lost through them. It is recommended that any homeowner should fix this problem as soon as possible to prevent further wastages and damages.

Our experts at Easy Plumbing Solutions Sydney can save you all the trouble by fixing your leaking tap. We have the tools and expertise to fix the taps quickly and effectively.

What are the causes of leaking taps?

Before venturing into the fixing of leaking taps, our team at Easy Solutions Plumbing Sydney  wants you to understand the causes of any leaking taps. The following are some of the reasons why a tap would leak:

1. Bad O-ring

One of the problems that may cause tap leakage is a loose or worn-out O-ring. An O-ring is the small disc attached to the stem screw and it holds the faucet’s handle in place. If it is worn out, it will make the tap to drip near the handle.

2. Worn-out Cartridge

The cartridge is also a possible cause of a leaking tap. If the cartridge is faulty it will have to be replaced but you have to find one that matches exactly so that you can swap.

3. Corroded Valve Seat

If the leak is originating from the spout, the cause is most probably the valve seat that connects the faucet and the spout. The valve seat corrodes due to a buildup of water sediments, thus causing leakage. You can prevent the valve from corrosion by washing it of course with the help of an expert.

4. Worn-Out Seals

Just like the valve seats, water sediments can corrode the outlet and inlet seals causing possible tap leakage.

5. Washer Problems

Sometimes the friction between the washer and the valve seat causes the washer to wear out and this becomes a cause for leaking taps. In addition, if you use a washer that does not fit in properly or if you do not install it well, it will leak.

6. Water Pressure

If you notice that the tap leaks only at certain times, or when you turn the handle in a certain way, the problem lies with the water pressure.

7. Loose Parts

Overtime, the packing nuts and the adjusting ring in the stream screw may become loose causing water to leak at the tap handle. You either replace or tighten the packing nut to solve the problem.

8. Broken Parts

Broken parts may cause the tap ton leak and at this point, you need to call a professional plumber to fix the problem for you.

Reasons Why You Should Fix the Leaking Taps

Now that you know all the causes of a leaking tap, it is time you call professionals to fix the leaking taps. Here are some of the reasons why you should fix the leaking taps:

  • Saving on the water bill

Leak taps usually waste many gallons of water. Why spend so much money paying for water that went down the drain? Fix those leaking faucets and save your money.

  • Water damage

The constant dripping water will form moisture in the house and with time, you will start to see molds on the floors, ceilings, and walls. In addition, the mold and dampness can cause serious health issues such as nasal stuffiness and sinus issues, skin, throat and eye irritation, and breathing issues like asthma.

  • Annoying sounds of constant drips

The constant dripping will eventually drive you nuts. Imagine the whole house is silent and as you try to sleep, all you can hear is the annoying sound of dripping water.

  • Saving the environment

Fixing leaking taps is conserving water thus saving the environment.

  • Fixing a leaking tap is cost effective

The cost of fixing a leaking tap is not expensive at all, especially with the Easy Solutions Plumbing Sydney. Imagine assuming a leaking tap and allowing molds to grow. Cleaning the mess is going to cost you a lot more than just the simple exercise of fixing the tap.

    ;Nothing was too difficult and
    I’m very satisfied! I’ve already
    recommended him to my Dad, and would
    have no hesitation using him again

    Ben helped me with a bathroom renovation and was helpful and easy-going. Also, when I asked him to do more he was very accommodating. He did the work, and he was honest about both the prices and how he’d go about everything.

    was fine and the job was done well.
    I fully intend on using them again.

    Ben’s service was very good; excellent actually! He got straight back to me when I made the call, which doesn’t always happen. He was on time and when finished, he vacuumed and took the rubbish and old fittings away.

    He was a very good communicator, was a pleasant young fellow and he came through with everything he said. I was quite impressed to be honest.

    I’d be happy to recommend him to anyone based on what he did at our place.

  • Janet Flood - Miranda

    ;I've been very, very pleased with him;
    that's why I got him back and will continue to.
    I found him very personable, very efficient,
    prompt, and he cleaned up after himself.

    Ben was recommended to me by a friend and over the past 6 months I have used him for a number of jobs, including toilet and cistern installations, leaking taps, replacing taps with mixer taps and also custom gas connection for a pottery kiln.

    He researched installation of the chimney flue to make sure he had the correct flashing for the purpose built metal shed.

    I have been extremely pleased with Ben’s work and found him very personable, efficient and reliable and would not hesitate to use him for any plumbing needs in the future.

  • Kerry Fyfe - Heathcote

    ; He's prompt, and when he says he's going to turn up, he does...
    He was very straight and honest too. He told me what the problems were,
    in layman's terms ... and then he got stuck in.
    .

    When Ben said he'd turn up, he did. The estimate was close to the final price, he went out of his way to make sure everything was cleaned up, and he even offered to go and get some grass to cover up a trench he had to dig.

    Ben was very straight and honest too. He explained the problems in layman's terms so I knew what was happening, then he got stuck in and did them straight away.

    I've used Ben for more than one job, and I'll definitely call him back again.
