When Should I Get My Dripping Tap Repaired?

Leaving taps to leak could cause your kitchen or bathroom to become flooded, especially if this is a sign of a more serious problem, such as broken pipes. Tackling the underlying issue also prevents expensive water bills and allows you to get a more restful night’s sleep, without the annoying sound of a dripping tap!

We therefore always recommend booking a professional plumbing consultation as soon as you notice the first signs of a leaking tap, which could include anything from water pooling and stains to mould growth and fluctuating water pressure.

Our team is specially trained to repair all tap varieties to stop gradual damage, from compression and ceramic disc taps to those in showers, kitchens, toilets, and gardens.

Common causes of leaking taps

From high water pressure to damaged cartridges, we’ve seen all types of leaking tap issues during our 20+ years of industry experience. This means that there’s nothing we can’t fix, even if the leak is the sign of a more major systematic plumbing problem like corroded pipes – in this case, we can both fix the tap and perform essential pipe relining!

Here are some of the potential reasons why your taps may be dripping:

How to Fix a Leaking Tap: Our Comprehensive Repair Process

Leaking taps might be a common issue for homeowners in Melbourne, but this doesn’t always make DIY repairs simple. Failing to reassemble the handle correctly or forgetting to turn off the water supply are small mistakes that could worsen the problem by causing significant water damage to your home, for example. 

Plus, knowing what o-rings and jumper valves look like isn’t always enough to guarantee successful repairs, which is why we’d always recommend calling qualified plumbing professionals to complete the job. 

Service Experts’ leaking tap plumbers come to your home fully equipped with quality tools like adjustable wrenches, needle nose pliers, Teflon tape, and goggles to ensure that the repairs are carried out safely and effectively. After setting up, we’ll then remove the tap handle and inspect your cartridge or washer for general wear and tear, before replacing any faulty parts.

We may also re-grease spindle threats or install pressure-limiting valves to prevent pipe damage, depending on what’s causing your tap to leak.

Leaking Tap Repair FAQs

You won’t always require a completely new tap if yours has started to drip. A simple fix such as replacing the o-ring can solve the problem for taps where water is leaking from beneath the handle. Alternatively, our expert plumbers can install a new washer or ceramic valve cartridge if the spout is the source of the leak.

Simple fixes for a leaky tap, like replacing an o-ring or washer, can be performed with minimal plumbing knowledge. However, always call a professional plumber if you are unsure or in the event of a severe leak, especially if you begin to notice any water damage in your home.

Loose or damaged tapware parts are one of the most likely reasons that your tap is leaking, which could include o-rings, washers, cartridges, or jumper valves. Dripping taps may also be caused by external factors, such as abnormally high water pressure or mineral buildup. Alternatively, taps that are 10 to 15 years old could be experiencing general wear and tear.

The cost of hiring a professional plumbing service to fix a dripping faucet varies, depending on the cause and nature of the leak. Simple repairs like replacing seals and washers are generally cheaper, while more complex issues that require new parts or a complete faucet replacement can be more expensive. 

While those small leaks may not seem like much of an issue, dripping taps are actually one of the main causes of common plumbing problems when left untreated, including mould growth and water damage. Leaving a faucet to leak can also waste up to 20,000 litres of water, which adds an estimated 10% to your water bill each month.
