Being able to correctly identify the cause of a leaking tap is important so that the problem can be prevented from recurring. This is why it is best to seek help from a licenced plumber. The plumbers from Blueline Plumbing & Gas are fully qualified, licensed and have extensive knowledge in how to properly fix a leaking tap.

The most common cause of leaking taps is a perished tap washer. A washer is normally made of rubber and is compressed against the valve set in the tap and over time with constant use, the washer can break or split. When washers are replaced and in working condition, the tap should be able to turn on and off with minimal effort.

If your tap has been leaking for a long time, you will have started to turn it off harder than normally required. Once a plumber repairs the tap, make sure you consciously think about how tight you are turning off your tap. If you continue turning it off with a great deal of force, you can cause the washer to break leaving you in your original predicament. After a tap has been serviced, you should be able to turn it off with the amount of force able to be applied with only two fingers. If your tap requires more force than this, you should contact Blueline Plumbing & Gas for assistance.

Other Causes of

If your tap is leaking excessively and is displaying substantial signs of wear and tear, our plumbers may recommend the replacement of the entire tap system. A leaking tap that spills water around the sink or counter can begin to rot the surrounding fixtures and is a breeding ground for mould to grow which is a serious health concern for your household. If this small issue is left untreated, it can lead to an even larger issue down the track which may be costly.
