Leaking taps are not as innocuous as you may think. A small leak can lead to much more significant issues like overflowing and flooding. This can permanently damage your floors, carpets, and other personal belongings. Furthermore, it facilitates the wastage of water — a valuable resource.

Why Do Taps Leak?

Locating the source of a leaking tap can be challenging at times. You may be able to hear the continual dripping of water but may not be able to find its origin. Alternatively, you may come across pools of water in your sink or on the floor. Cleaning the mess can be troublesome and overwhelming. However, it is imperative to repair or replace leaking taps soon.

Here are some of the most common causes of leaky faucets:

  • Loose parts
  • Incorrect installation
  • Excessive water pressure
  • Corroded fittings
  • Faulty O-ring

While you may opt for DIY repairs or replacements, it isn’t always recommended. The primary reason is that faulty repairs can lead to more significant future problems — which will inevitably lead to costly repairs. In these cases, it is best to leave the job to the professionals.

Leaking Tap FAQs

Do you have more questions about your leaking tap? See the most commonly asked questions from our customers:

There are many potential causes of a leaking tap, but one of the most common is age and wear and tear. Over time, washers and other parts inside the tap can become damaged or corroded, causing water to leak out. In some cases, you may be able to fix a leaking tap yourself by simply replacing a washer or another part. However, in other cases, it may be necessary to hire a professional plumber to make repairs.

If your tap leaks, it’s important to get it fixed as soon as possible. Not only will a leaky tap wastewater, but it can also cause damage to your home. Landlords are responsible for repairing and maintaining the plumbing in their rental properties, so if you have a leaking tap, your landlord should be able to help you out. If they cannot fix the problem right away, they should at least be able to provide you with a temporary solution until the repairs can be made.

A leaking tap is usually repairable. The main problem with a leaking tap is that it wastes water, which can be costly over time.

You can do a few things to try to fix a leaking tap yourself. First, check the aerator on the end of the faucet - this is the part that screws on and breaks most often. If the aerator is damaged or clogged, remove it and clean it or replace it. If that doesn’t fix the leak, check under the sink for any leaks in the piping and repair them as necessary. Finally, if you’ve tried everything and the leak persists, call a plumber to fix it.

Yes, a leaking tap can cause water hammer. Water leaks from a tap can create a slight vacuum in the plumbing system. This can cause water to be drawn into the system faster than it can be expelled, resulting in the infamous 'water hammer' effect. If you have a persistent water hammer problem, it’s worth checking for leaks in your taps and pipes and contacting our plumbers.

If your tap is leaking, there are a few things you can do to fix it. First, ensure that the area around the tap is clean and dry. Then, try tightening the packing nut with a wrench. If that doesn’t work, you may need to replace the washer. To do this, turn off the water supply to the tap and remove the handle. Then unscrew the bonnet nut and lift out the stem. Take the old washer to a hardware store to get an exact replacement. Once you have the new washer, put it in place and reassemble the tap. Turn on the water supply and check for leaks.
