Sydney’s tap repair and replacement specialist
Although fairly simple in design, taps can come in a wide variety of styles and with different functions, and each can develop a myriad of issues with use over time. Because every tap is different, you need an expert who will be able to recognise the issue and be able to either fix the problem on the spot, or provide a replacement.
We’ve worked for decades as qualified plumbers, and have a reputation for outstanding customer service and quality on site workmanship. We have a dedicated team that’s standing by to fix any tap issues in the Sydney area, and we can supply high quality brand name taps for new installations and replacements. We can also advise you on the most suitable taps and other fixtures if you have small children in your home, thanks to our knowledge of current child safety regulations and standards.
You can rest easy knowing that you’re in safe hands with Sydney 24 Hour Plumbing.
Do you have problems with your taps?
Issues with taps can occur gradually if you’re using them regularly. For example, a small unnoticeable drip can turn into a more frequent and annoying one, or a leak might become bigger and more problematic over a few months. Some problems can occur if a tap hasn’t been used for a while and is stiff to use, while some others might occur suddenly and cause an emergency. Let’s look at some of the most common tap issues that you might experience.
Seized or stuck taps
A tap that’s seized or stuck is one that won’t turn on, no matter how hard you try and move the handle. This can obviously be a major issue, especially if the tap is located in an important area, such as a bathroom, kitchen, laundry or outdoors. Some taps that have seized may turn on, but you might struggle to turn them off properly, leading to leaking or even a heavy flow of water that can’t be stopped. Generally a stuck tap may be caused by a build-up of calcium from water around the spindle. Washers can also rust over time, causing taps to jam. Generally, depending on the age and issue, a completely seized tap will be replaced.
Leaking or dripping tap
A dripping or leaking tap can be one of life’s most annoying household problems, especially if it is in a prominent place around the home. A dripping tap will also never just fix itself, so ignoring it hoping that the issue will go away is not a good solution. In general, a dripping or leaking tap may mean that the washers are damaged or worn and should be replaced, or in a tap without washers (such as a cartridge or ceramic disc tap), the moving parts or seals may also be damaged in some way.
When you turn on or turn off your tap, and it starts to make unusual sounds, you’ll know that you have an issue either with the tap itself or in the pipework. You might be surprised to learn that some taps are unsuitable for certain fittings, and this can cause grinding or banging sounds. Some tap noise is caused by badly fitted or unseated washers, the formation of scale, or other plumbing design problems. Noisy pipework – also known as water hammer – can be very common and can sound like a tapping or loud banging in the walls or floors when the tap is turned on. This is usually the sound of shockwaves reverberating down the pipes after a tap has been shut off or turned on quickly. It can mean that the pipes are unseated or banging against internal parts of the walls or floors.
