Shower, Sink, Tap LEAKS - Darwin Tap Repairs

Shower, Sink, Tap Leaks

Shower, sink, and tap leaks are common issues in plumbing and can be a result of various reasons such as damaged seals, worn out washers, and corrosion. A leaky showerhead, for instance, can result in a significant waste of water and increase the water bill. A leaky sink can cause water damage to the surrounding area and potentially create an unsanitary environment if not addressed promptly. Similarly, a leaky tap can lead to water wastage and cause damage to the tap itself. These leaks are relatively easy to fix if detected early and can be done by replacing washers, seals, or valves. However, if the issue is more severe, it may require professional plumbing services to resolve. It is important to address any leaks promptly to prevent further damage and ensure efficient use of water.

Shower, Sink and Tap Leaks – Expert Plumbing Job

Tap repairs typically involve fixing issues with a tap's functionality, such as leaks, poor water flow, or difficulty turning the tap on and off. A plumber might need to replace parts such as the washer, O-ring, or valve seat to repair a leak. If the tap is difficult to turn, the plumber might need to replace the tap's spindle or replace the tap entirely. In some cases, the plumber may need to access the tap's internal components by removing the tap's handle or valve. To diagnose the issue, the plumber may need to turn off the water supply and disassemble the tap, inspect the parts, and then reassemble the tap and turn the water back on to test the repair.

An Expert's Job

Though tap repairs may not seem like much, the fact is that not everyone can repair them. There are many different parts that can malfunction or fail that a professional is needed to identify and fix tap issues. We know this and it’s also why we have the best and highly experienced tap experts on our team. They ensure that the issues are fixed within the shortest possible time.

When our plumber is installing the new tapware, he will also expertly replace the black & white washers that come with the fitting, with high-quality hydro seal washers. These are made of brass and have o-rings as their rubber. Every time the tapware is replaced, the face seat set will be re-seated with the use of a re-seating tool. This provides the perfect space for the hydro seal washer to fit in.
One of the other advantages to replacing the tap is that the labour involved is almost the same as servicing it. In most instances, this accounts for a larger percentage of the cost of the new tapware purchase. In case you have Shower, Sink and Tap Leaks in your home, you simply have to call us and speak with our plumbing consultants. They will provide you with the best solutions and advice.

When Are Tap Repairs Required?​

Tap repairs are usually required when a tap starts to leak or becomes difficult to turn. Some common issues that may necessitate tap repairs include worn-out washers, faulty valves, broken handles or spouts, or corrosion of internal parts. In some cases, leaks can also be caused by mineral buildup in the tap, which can clog the pipes and prevent proper water flow. It is important to address tap leaks as soon as possible to prevent water damage and to conserve water, as even small leaks can add up over time and lead to significant waste. If you notice any signs of a leaky tap, it is best to contact a professional plumber for an assessment and repair.
