Leaking Tap Repair
Do you have leaking taps?
A leaking tap or a dripping tap can waste up to a litre of water per hour, leading to thousands of litres of water each year, causing damage not just to your bank balance, but your flooring, yard and fittings too! Leaking taps can also be a hazard to your families health, not so much the leak, but the mould & mildew that leaks cause. A dripping hot valve can also add strain on your Hot Water System causing the gas or electrical elements to become damaged or be overworked. That slow leaking tap that you think you can ignore, could cause a whole lot more damage than a burst pipe over time.

What Causes Leaking Taps?
At The Local Plumber Hull our years of experience in plumbing services has enabled us to quickly and easily identify the cause of a kitchen tap leaking, a mixer tap dripping from spout, how to fix a dripping tap ceramic disc.. and a multitude of “dripping tap” problems. Below is our list of the the most common causes of leaking taps.
This is the most common reason. Over time, washers or parts of a tap can become worn and damaged, causing a tap to drip of leak. This is a minor problem, and can be very easy and cheap to fix, and should not result in any major problems.
Sometimes, cracks can develop in parts of the basin, or pipes. It doesn’t happen often, and is a larger task to repair, but our professional plumbing service can have this resolved within a few hours.
If you have a cartridge style tap, worn cartridges can cause leaking taps. At The Local Plumbers Hull we can quickly and easily replace cartridges and fix your tripping taps, and fix faulty taps that simple need new internal parts.
We see this most often in new homes; when water pressure from plumbing system is high, water flows strongly. And once the water supply is cut, excess water will remain sitting in pipes and needs a place to flow. This may be the cause of a leaking tap – excess water trying to make its way out of a tap. As your plumbers in Hull, we can easily asses whether ‘high flow’ is the cause of leaking taps in your home.
High water pressure can also lead to damage to pipes or taps that cannot withstand the pressure, leading to leaking pipes within your home plumbing system. This is very hard to detect on your own!
