By December 8, 2017 No Comments

As a homeowner, you may find there are a few small issues from time to time that can make a nuisance around your house. A leaking tap is a common issue to have in the home. Luckily for you, this is a nuisance which you can quickly take care of.  Below are our tips on how to fix a dripping tap.

Be prepared

Before you do anything it is vital that you turn off the water mains. This avoids the risk of flooding and wastage of water.

There is one main way to fix a leaking tap but there are multiple ways that it can become faulty. Water can leak from the spout, the tap base or any movable joints.

Water Pressure

Another issue that could be linked to dripping taps is water pressure. Sometimes too much pressure builds up and forces water out of what would seem to be a closed tap. If there isn’t enough pressure, then the water will sit in the pipes and slowly drip down.

A professional plumber will be able to diagnose the problem and fix it for you. If you need any assistance then give us a call on 0800 4346596 today to see what we can do for!
