Need a Plumber to Fix Leaking Taps? Full Flow Plumbing and Drainage Can Help

When it comes to leaking taps, there are various reasons why they may occur. Some of the most common causes include worn-out washers, damaged pipes, and faulty cartridges. While some of these issues can be fixed with a simple DIY solution, others require the expertise of a professional plumber. A leaking tap plumber can diagnose the problem accurately and provide a long-lasting solution that will prevent the issue from recurring.

Why Do Taps Leak?

When it comes to leaking taps, we often encounter a few common problems. By identifying the problem, we can determine the best course of action to fix the issue. 

A worn-out washer is one of the most common causes of a leaking tap. This is often caused by repeated use and can result in a constant drip or even a steady stream of water. We may need to replace the washer with a new one to fix this issue.

Another common issue is a faulty O-ring. This is a small rubber ring that sits inside the tap and helps to create a seal. Over time, the O-ring can become worn or damaged, leading to a leak. Replacing the O-ring can often fix the problem.

If the tap leaks from the base, it may be due to a damaged or worn-out cartridge. The cartridge is the part of the tap that controls the water flow. If it becomes damaged or worn, it can cause a leak. In this case, we may need to replace the cartridge to fix the issue.

Sometimes, a leaking tap may be caused by a more significant issue, such as a cracked or damaged pipe. High water pressure can cause damage to the tap components, leading to a leak. If this is the case, we may need to inspect the pipes to determine the cause of the leak and make any necessary repairs.

If you notice any signs of a leaking tap, such as a dripping sound or water pooling around the base, it is essential to fix the problem. Ignoring a leaking tap can lead to further damage and higher repair costs. 

In some cases, fixing a leaking tap can be a simple DIY job. For example, replacing a worn-out washer or tightening a loose fitting can often solve the problem. However, for more complex issues, it is best to seek the help of a professional plumber.

leaky tap repair

At some point, every homeowner will experience a leaking tap. The good news is that there are several preventive measures you can take to avoid tap leaks. Here are some tips to help you prevent tap leaks in your home:

  • Regular Maintenance: One of the most effective ways to prevent tap leaks is to have your taps regularly inspected and maintained by a professional plumber. Regular maintenance can help identify potential issues before they become major problems, saving you time and money in the long run.
  • Use Quality Parts:  Cheap or inferior parts may save you money in the short term, but they can lead to more significant problems. Always use high-quality parts from reputable manufacturers to ensure your taps last as long as possible.
  • Install Pressure Regulators: High water pressure can cause excessive strain on your taps, leading to leaks. Installing a pressure regulator can help control the water pressure and prevent damage to your taps. We can help you determine the ideal water pressure for your home and install a regulator if necessary.
  • Address Leaks Promptly: If you notice a leak, it’s important to address it promptly. Even a small leak can waste significant water over time, leading to higher water bills and potential damage to your home. Contact a Logan plumber as soon as possible to repair the leak and prevent further damage.
