Leaking Tap Repairs in Sydney

What are the causes of a leaking tap?

Some common causes for your leaking tap are as follows

Jammed Materials
Grit, bits of brass filings or anything that get jammed between the tap washer and the brass seat inside the tap, create a groove or a crack inside the tap body. In this case, the tap washer can be changed a million times, but it will never be a permanent solution. It may seal very momentarily but it will, in time, begin to leak again. We have the tools to grind down the brass seat to give it a nice flat, smooth finish. Then, we can install a new washer and flush out all the old brass filings.
Wear & Tear
If your taps have been used year on year, they may eventually give due to the constant wear they are subjected to everyday. Corrosion is one of the most common causes to the wear and damage in the tap. Under and Over Plumbing Solutions can inspect your tap and diagnose the problem that is causing the leaking tap. Sometimes, it may be a simple part replacement, in other cases, it may be a far deeper problem and concern.
Loose Parts
Another issue that may be the cause to your leaking problem is loose components within your tap. A simple tightening of the O-Ring or washers can help stop the leaking tap. Your local plumber can locate and tighten these parts inside your tap using the correct tools for a permanent solution.

Why Should You Fix Your Leaking Tap?

Leaking taps can contribute to 20,000L of water wastage a year. The small droplets every second add up to an astronomical amount when you consider the leak runs 24 hours, 7 days a week until it is fixed.

Australia is known for its hot and dry climate, constantly subjected to unforgiving droughts. During certain parts of the year, water can be scarce. As a community we try our best to conserve water and contribute to being environmentally friendly. In doing so, looking at your taps to see if they are leaking can be a small but helpful step in stopping water wastage.

Why Should You Get a Professional to Repair Your Taps?

Tricks Only A Professional Knows
Sometimes, taps that have been in place for long periods of time can be quite hard to get off, and there are certain ways of going around it to remove old tap washers. A professional can remove or replace a tap and its components without causing further damage.
DIYs Can Double the Damage
Quite often, taps can be seen as a small problem that can be fixed by the general person attempting a DIY job. When the ordinary person attempts to fix their tap and possibly breaks it, it turns into a much more complicated job than it was in the beginning. Not only could it have been a simpler job for the plumber, but it could also have been half the cost for the homeowner. Getting a professional means that you get the job done right at the beginning.
Tools of the Trade
We have the right tools and equipment to do the job properly on hand. Our plumbers have them stocked in their trucks, so they are ready to rock and roll when it comes to changing a tap washer. We also have the expertise to use the tools quickly and efficiently so you can be stress-free. Some people may also use tools that they find in their back shed to fix their tap. This can cause scratching to the chrome. Our experienced plumbers have the techniques and correct tools to prevent this scratching.

How Much Does It Cost to Fix a Leaking Tap?

Majority of plumbers work off an hourly rate. Depending on the severity of the job, it can be an extremely fast and cheap job. However, if a person attempts to DIY a tap, there could be no end to the damage caused.

Some taps have copper underneath. When trying to unscrew the tap, it moves the body of the tap, twisting the copper underneath. Then, you have gone from just changing a tap washer to buying a whole new tap set. Which will be an additional cost on top of the service fee.

It can truly be a domino effect where an unknown twisted pipe begins to leak, water begins to build up behind the wall and moisture spots begin appearing from inside the home. It opens the doors to having to get other trades in to sort out what would have been a simple job.

    Mal is a down to earth plumber and carpenter.Easy to approach and happy to workout solutions with you when you know you want a particular problem sorted (E.g. storage or height of things, best plumbing options) And you don’t know what will work, he’ll suggest what could work well and give a different perspective, which can be better than the ones you come up with. He’s thoughtful of those with physical disability too.I had installed grab rails, shower seat, and a bathroom cabinet, plus he did some carpenter handyman installation of items for me. Which I couldn’t do because of my disability and my strength and height.He involved me in the process of what works for me.Thank you Mal

    I had Mal from Over & Under Plumbing do a job for me today and I have only good things to say about him – he was quick to respond, was on-time, friendly and did the work efficiently and without fuss. As well, no attempt to up-sell me as some other tradies do these days. I’d recommend him if you need a plumber who will look after you.

    I have been using Mal for few years now. A friendly and pleasant plumber never failed to turn up as promised when i asked him to do plumbing works at my place no matter small or large job. A trustworthy tradesman whom i just need to say any plumbing issues at home and he will do the rest to get it fixed. He has been very helpful also to guide me to other tradespeople when i needed them for jobs other than plumbing.
