Tap Repairs BankstownDo you have a leaking tap in Bankstown?

After many years of repeated use, a tap water system will eventually breakdown and need to be replaced or repaired.  When deciding if a tap needs to be completely changed or just requires a minor repair, the first thing that you will have to do is find out if there is a leak.  If there is a leak, you will then need to locate where it is coming from.  For minor tap leaks, a simple hose replacement might be all that is necessary.

For more extensive damage that has been done to a tap, the entire system might need to be replaced.  When replacing a tap water system, you will have to make sure the plumbing is completely shut off in order to avoid any potential flooding.  Once this has been done, you will have to take out the current tap that is being replaced.  During this part of the process, you could be required to use some construction equipment so that you can cut in the wall.  Next, you can install the new tap by placing it securely in the wall.  After the actual tap is installed, you will reconnect the water hoses and turn the water back on. 

 

Taps are notorious for dripping. The good news is that a dripping tap is the most common complaint and usually the easiest to fix. When water enters your home through the pipes, it is under pressure. The seal on the tap must be tight when it is in the ‘off’ position as this is what prevents the water from continuing to flow. If it is not tight, this can cause a slow drip.

The easiest way to solve this problem is with a new washer. A washer is a little round piece made of rubber. If this starts to degrade or crack, it will let water pass. If you know how to take off the old washer, you can take it to your local hardware shop and obtain an exact match. If it does not match precisely, it will be worthless. This could solve the problem easily and inexpensively but only if you know what you are doing.
