Making sure your tap functions properly
TAP REPAIR, INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT SERVICE
Tap repair service is usually requested by customers when tap is leaking or when its handle is spoiled. It is one of the most common plumbing problems. Ignoring a leaked tap is not a long term solution as it results in significant water wastage over a period of time. Moreover, leaking tap is usually a simple repair which you should not ignore as it may deteriorate to a situation where you have to replace the tap which should cost more. Therefore, it is crucial to fix a leaking tap as early as possible.
Replace a Different Tap
Some owner may wish to replace their old taps which require the turning of knobs to new taps which they just need to lift the lever or handle. Replacing taps can be easily performed by experienced plumbers but may be a difficult task for non-plumbers. The difficult part is to ensure that the taps are fixed well without leakages.
If you need to fix the cold and hot water supply to the taps, the installation becomes more difficult. Some home owners buy a tap with totally different design and realize that it is not suitable for their basin. For instance, if you have a bowl like basin, you can use a tall tap. But if you have a shallow and flat basin, installing a tall tap not only looks weird, the water flowing from such height may splash out of the basin easily. Consulting a plumber before buying a tap with totally different design is advisable.
Why is my Tap Leaking? Should I request for Tap Repair Service?
There can be many reasons why your tap is leaking, and figuring out the main cause of a tap leakage can help save time and money in repairing your leaking tap.
Problem in the parts
Often, the source of a leaking tap lies in the parts of a faucet. These parts can come loose, or become corroded over time, and cease to work properly. Parts like the O-ring, valve seat, washer and seals may be forced to rub against each other when the tap is being used. Over time, the friction causes these parts to wear out and loosen, which results in a leaking tap. In general, tap leakages due to faulty faucet parts can be easily fixed by replacing the faulty components with new ones.
Continuous usage of the tap can cause the parts of the tap handle to become loose. Over time, this causes the tap to leak near the handle. Unlike cases when there is a problem in the parts of the faucet, a loose handle can be easily fixed by tightening the packing nuts of the taps or replacing them.
Broken pipes or fittings
In some rare cases, the leaking tap may be due to broken pipes or fittings that would affect the water pressure in the tap, causing it to leak easily. Fixing this issue would require the assistance of professional plumbers as it may be difficult to identify the broken pipes or fittings. Replacing the faulty parts would also require experience so that the tap leaking issue can be fixed effectively and efficiently. As such, it would be wisest to contact a reliable plumbing service to assist you with fixing the tap leakage.
Why Hire Professional Plumbers?
While some of the tap leaking issues can be easily fixed by simply replacing the faulty components with new ones, identifying the correct source of the leaking problem and fixing it effectively requires a lot of experience which ordinary homeowners may not have. Often, inexperienced homeowners would wrongly identify the source of the leakage or fix the tap inadequately, which would result in additional costs of repair that could have been avoided had they contacted a professional plumber in the first place. Thus, it is always wisest to leave things to the experts before things get worse.
