The worst thing about leaking taps and dripping pipes is just how deceptive they are. A drop or two a minute hardly seems like a pressing problem when you’ve got a busy life to get on with. It’s a problem, but it can be tomorrow’s problem.
But that quiet voice in the back of your head knows that a drip can turn into a burst pipe, leading to a flood that results in tens of thousands of dollars worth of damages. That voice is right. And the fix could be as quick and cheap as replacing a loose washer.
As a leading full-service plumber, our licensed technicians can diagnose and service all of your leaking tap issues. Most of the time, the leak will be caused by a loosened fitting. Every now and then, though, it’s a symptom of a deeper problem.
Trust us on this: fixing a bad job costs more than doing a good one. No matter how small the issue may be or how quick the fix is, we always use premium tools and replacement parts to ensure your new or repaired taps function correctly for years to come.
Today’s taps are technological marvels. Designed to withstand the demands of commercial use or to add luxury to suburban homes, and manufactured from premium materials with stunning finishes, many taps require a specialist to service them. But even your garden-variety garden taps deserve an expert’s finesse.

We can repair everything from run-of-the-mill laundry taps to touchpad-operated filtered water taps.
