Why does a tap start to leak?

A dripping tap can be irritating.

The drip drip sound can keep you up at night, it wastes water and if it is the hot tap that is leaking, will be costing you money in wasted hot water.

So getting it fixed should be a priority.

A leaking tap starts to leak because of worn out parts.  While cheaper taps will use cheaper parts and naturally wear out quicker, a conventional tap system will always wear out over time, especially with heavy use.  Washers can fail because of corrosion and water pressure build up while the friction on the valve within the tap can wear away causing a leak to form.

If you have a washer less tap then you still have the problem of cartridge, ball and disc components failing.

The good news is that these kind of problems are easy to fix, especially when you call a qualified plumber like JSL to do the job for you.

  • Quick resolution of problem and good communication.
  • Very friendly throughout the process. Clear information given and very thorough. I will be using them again!
  • JSL Plumbing & Heating replaced a kitchen and a bathroom tap and fixed a toilet where the cistern was leaking into the bowl. He was personable and professional, and provided advice on which replacement taps we might want to get for the bathroom. He provided updates on his progress throughout, and the pricing was reasonable. We have used JSL before and would happily do so again. Have also recommended this company to others.
  • Job completed to our satisfaction. Bathroom and en-suite left tidy and work completed in the timescale agreed and charged as per the quote. Good quality fittings used. Would certainly use JSL Plumbing Services again in future.
  • Jim assessed the leak, which required repair and offered an honest appraisal. He was on time, polite and carried out the work as planned. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and would use for a larger installation in the future.
  • Had a bent radiator pipe I needed replacing and as I'd already called them out thought I'd get some bath taps fitted. I'd been putting the job off as it was in a really awkward tight place and knew it wouldn't be pleasant. The plumber was happy to help and it didn't cost me as much as I expected for the time and fiddly nature of the job.
  • Very good service with work done quickly after contacting company.
