The sound of leaking taps at home is a source of great frustration. Not only can the sound keep you up at night, but a leaking tap also proves costly over the long term. According to the Queensland Government, one slow dripping tap can waste 9,000 litres of water a year. That number only rises for fast drips. So it’s time to get your faucets in order by giving us a call today!
Causes of Leaking Taps
Although it might seem like a small issue, there is always an incentive to fix a leaking tap at home. Professional tap repairs will save you the headache of a recurring drip and will also preserve your plumbing for longer.
Meanwhile, leaking tap repairs also save money on water bills, benefitting the environment as less water is wasted on a daily basis.

As a part of our professional leaking tap services, your plumber will assess the cause of a leak, so they can provide the best long-term solution. Whether that’s repairing a tap, replacing the faucet, or more serious plumbing repairs, a stress-free outcome will always be achieved.
When it comes to leaking taps, there are several leading causes. Some of the most common include:
- Damaged/worn out washers
- Corroded valve seats
- Scratched or damaged ceramic discs (mixer taps)
- Dirt in the cartridge
- Loose or damaged O-Ring
No matter the issues, you can always call or book a plumber online for quality tap repairs. That annoying leak from the bathroom sink will be a distant memory. Contact us today to book your job.
Leaking Tap Repairs
While it might be tempting to perform leaking tap repairs on your own, it’s always best to contact a licensed plumbing company. DIY repairs by an inexperienced pair of hands can, unfortunately, lead to unforeseen and expensive problems later on.
The peace of mind that Book A Plumber Online provides while fixing a leaking tap is well worth the long lasting success.
When it comes to leaking taps, it’s important to remember there’s a wide world of tapware on offer. And it might just not be one individual part that needs to be fixed, either. From a washer or spindle replacement to broken cartridge repair, anything could come up during an emergency plumbing visit.
Thankfully, your local team from Book A Plumber Online is well versed in all types of repairs. Every van is fully stocked with replacement parts and tools, so you can enjoy same day solutions with no delay. We can even often be at your house within 1 hour* of your call.
In terms of your home’s tapware and fixtures, some of the accessories and fittings we look after include:
- Basin sets
- Kitchen or bathroom mixer taps
- Taps, handles and spouts
- Shower mixer taps and showerheads
- Pull out, pull down or swivel sink mixers
- Bath tapware
One of the most common solutions to fix a leaking tap is tap replacement. The long-term solution ensures the cause of the leak is completely repaired or removed on the spot. There’s no extra cost wasted on repeated visits to replace a washer. Instead, your local plumber will often replace your tapware with a brand new set for peace of mind.
Replacement, instead of a basic repair, helps limit the chances of plumbing problems recurring again and again. It’s a professional service stopping any leak while skipping the step of interim maintenance.
As an extra bonus, you also receive brand new tapware! It’s the perfect chance to say goodbye to an old, dripping tap, and welcome a brand new mixer tap or similar.
How to Check for Leaking Taps
Aside from a visibly leaking tap, there are several other signs to look out for in your home. Two of the most beneficial include paying attention to your water usage.
A higher than usual water bill is a great example. If there have been no changes to your water usage habits, then a leaking tap or a burst pipe is to blame. Use this as an opportunity to contact an emergency plumber.
Meanwhile, you can also preempt a water bill and check the water meter. Take an accurate reading, and then check again in 2-4 hours to see if the meter has changed. Be sure not to use any water during this time, though! And if the meter continued to tick over, it’s clear that there are unknown leaks or damage to pipes.
If you happen to suspect a leaking tap for any reason, contact Book A Plumber Online today. We’re available 24/7 with no additional fees for after hours attendance. Customers can always enjoy our licensed plumbing services without delay.
