Help I have a leaking tap!!!
First off – do not panic. Make sure that the water can still drain away out of the sink. The last thing you want is a leaking tap AND a blocked drain pipe flooding your kitchen of bathroom.
When it comes to taps, there are two types (generally). The Ceramic Disco Tap & The Stem or Pillar Tap.
You may be wondering why this is important. It is because, by knowing what type of tap you have, we can determine why type of issue you most likely have and the best way to fix it.
With the ceramic disc tap, if this is dripping from the spout then the whole of the central cartridge will need to be checked and potentially replaced. You can find these replacement parts online and through most good hardware stores. Obviously you need to shut off the water to that tap before you begin replacing parts. Because of the vast array of old and new houses, the water pipe on/off valve could be anywhere. If you need a professional plumber to help you fix the issue then call on JSL Plumbing on 0141 406 1658.
The other type of tap that you will commonly find in Glasgow homes is the Stem or Pillar taps. These are the most common tap type in and around Glasgow homes.
