Leaking Taps


Tapping in on Savings



Leaking taps are very annoying, waste precious water, cost you money and can be a sign of worse things to come. It may be as simple as replacing a washer or it could be a problem with the tap. Taps get a lot use and have to withstand constant water pressure, so it makes sense they will need a good overhaul or replacement from time to time to keep them drip free and operating smoothly. When you use something often, you want it to work properly and the best way to guarantee this is to have it maintained by professionals.

Our experienced and qualified plumbers at Abbey do more than just replace washers they look at the whole system to make sure that when we fix a leaking tap, it stays fixed. The problem could be as simple as a faulty O ring or fibre washer or the causes could be deeper such as higher than average water pressure and old or poor quality tap ware. By getting a better picture of the source of the problem we can make a more informed decision on the best way to repair it, so it lasts.
