Common Tap Problems

We understand that tap problems can be frustrating and disruptive to your daily routine. In this section, we will discuss some of the most common tap problems we encounter and provide solutions for each.

Low Pressure

Low water pressure can be caused by a variety of factors, including a blocked aerator, a damaged valve, or a faulty pressure regulator. If you are experiencing low water pressure, we recommend checking your aerator first. This small device at the end of your tap can become clogged with debris over time, reducing water flow. Simply unscrew the aerator and clean it thoroughly before reattaching it.

If cleaning the aerator does not solve the problem, it may be necessary to replace the valve or pressure regulator. Our team of qualified plumbers can diagnose the issue and provide a solution that meets your needs.


Leaking taps are a common problem that can waste a significant amount of water over time. The most common cause of leaks is a worn-out washer, which can be easily replaced. However, if the tap is still leaking after replacing the washer, it may be necessary to replace the entire tap.

Another cause of leaks is a damaged or corroded pipe, which can be more difficult to diagnose and repair. Our team has the expertise and tools necessary to quickly identify and repair any leaks in your tap system.

Other Tap Problems

In addition to low pressure and leaks, there are other tap problems that may require professional attention. These include:

  • Dripping taps
  • Stiff or difficult-to-turn taps
  • Noisy taps

If you are experiencing any of these issues, our team can provide a thorough inspection of your tap system to identify the underlying cause and provide a solution.

We are committed to providing high-quality tap fitting and repair services to our customers. We are fully certified and follow all relevant regulations, including those set by the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS).

Tap Replacement

We understand that replacing a tap can be a daunting task. That’s why we’re here to help. In this section, we’ll cover when to replace a tap and how to choose a new one.

When to Replace a Tap

There are several reasons why you may need to replace a tap. Here are some common signs that it’s time to replace your tap:

  • Leaks: If your tap is leaking, it may be time to replace it. Leaks can be caused by worn out washers, damaged pipes, or other issues.
  • Wear and tear: Over time, taps can become worn out and start to look shabby. If your tap is looking old and worn out, it may be time to replace it.
  • Poor water pressure: If your tap is not producing enough water, it may be time to replace it. Poor water pressure can be caused by a variety of issues, including clogged pipes or a damaged tap.
  • Corrosion: If your tap is starting to corrode, it may be time to replace it. Corrosion can cause leaks and other issues.

Choosing a New Tap

When choosing a new tap, there are several things to consider. Here are some factors to keep in mind:

  • Size: Taps come in a variety of sizes, so it’s important to choose one that fits your sink. If you’re unsure what size tap you need, we can help.
  • Style: Taps come in a variety of styles, including square, round, and more. Choose a style that matches your decor and personal taste.
  • Material: Taps can be made from a variety of materials, including metal and plastic. Metal taps are typically more durable and long-lasting.
  • Commercial vs. residential: If you’re replacing a tap in a commercial setting, you may need a larger diameter tap that can handle more water flow.

Let us assist you in selecting the ideal tap to meet your requirements. Our extensive selection features top-quality taps from leading manufacturers, complemented by our professional installation services to guarantee proper fitting of your new tap.

Maintenance and Prevention

We understand the importance of maintaining your taps to prevent costly repairs or replacements. Regular checks and maintenance can help you avoid leaks, water wastage, and damage to your home’s infrastructure. We will talk about why maintenance and prevention are important and give tips for keeping your taps in good condition in this part.

Regular Checks

We recommend that you inspect your taps regularly to ensure that they are functioning correctly. Here are some things to look out for:

  • Check for leaks: Look for any signs of water leakage around your taps or under your sink. If you notice any leaks, contact us immediately to prevent further damage.
  • Check for water pressure: Low water pressure could indicate a problem with your tap’s aerator or a buildup of limescale. If you notice a significant decrease in water pressure, contact us to diagnose the issue.
  • Check for damage: Inspect your taps for any visible damage, such as cracks or chips. Damaged taps can cause leaks or water wastage and should be repaired or replaced as soon as possible.


To prevent tap problems and keep your taps in top condition, we recommend the following:

  • Clean your taps regularly: Use a mild soap and water to clean your taps regularly to prevent the buildup of limescale or dirt.
  • Use a filter: Install a filter on your tap to prevent debris from entering the tap and causing damage.
  • Use a plumber’s tape: Use plumber’s tape on the threads of your tap to prevent leaks and ensure a tight seal.
  • Insulate your pipes: Insulate your pipes to prevent heat loss and freezing during the winter months.
