Leaking Taps

We do more than just changing the washer.

Hot Water Systems Shelley


Quickly Diagnose

A leaking tap at 1 drip per second can add up to 20 000 litres in a year, which is enough to fill a small swimming pool, and if it's a hot tap then it's also a waste of energy. Along with this, a simple dripping tap can also cause damage to the walls, ceilings and floor. Therefore it is clear that a leaking tap is better fixed sooner rather than later.

Our qualified technicians can quickly diagnose the issue and provide you with an honest recommendation on whether it is best to repair or replace the tap. Our vans are fully stocked with all types of standard tap-ware, however if you're looking for something unique we can source one for you.


Our Procedure

  • 1 Turn the water off
  • 2 Disassemble the tap without causing damage
  • 3 Re-seat the set using a re-seating tool on a low torque setting
  • 4 Flush away debris
  • 5 Remove body washers
  • 6 Clean and machine spindle
  • 7 Replace body washers and fibre body washers
  • 8 Re-grease, re-washer and reassemble
  • 9 Turn the water on and test

* For leaking spindles only
* Should the tap-ware be of the ceramic disc type it is best that the spindles be replaced as these types are not serviceable.
