The drip of a leaking tap can break your mind — and budget

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.

How can I tell if my tap is leaking?

A leaking tap isn’t as apparent as you think it is. Depending on how often the tap is used and how heavy the leak is, you may not see or hear the drip at all. Here are some of the less obvious signs of a dripping tap:

  • There are small puddles at the base of your tap, indicating a light but steady leak
  • The countertop around your tap is dry but discoloured, indicating that the evaporated water has left behind a residue
  • Your water bill is inexplicably higher than expected, indicating there’s a leak in your taps or pipes that you’re unaware of

There are several reasons why a tap might begin to drip, including:

  • Improperly installed faucets and filters
  • Corroded washers
  • Corroded pipes
  • Water pressure that’s too high

Once we’re onsite, we’ll fix the immediate leak and then help you determine whether there may be deeper complications worth investigating.

Our Melbourne tap repair team is ready to go

All that’s left to do is give us a ring. We’re available 24/7, so don’t hesitate to call us as soon as you need us.
