A leaking tap may seem like an easy ‘quick fix’. However, leaking tap repairs can turn into quite a mission if you do not know the full extent of the repair or are unsure about exactly what to do. You also risk turning such a minor problem into a major one. When it comes to repairing a leaking tap in Sydney, Newater Plumbing gets rid of the hassle with its efficient and friendly service.
While a leaking tap is not on the same level as a major plumbing emergency like a burst pipe, you should attend to issues like tap replacement or washer repairs as soon as possible. Below are some of the reasons why:
You might not realise it, but a leaking tap that constantly drips wastes a lot of water and is likely to add significantly to your water bill.
In the long term, a leaking tap can cause damage to walls, floors and ceilings and leave ugly stains behind that are difficult to get rid of. What is more, nearby floorboards and cupboards may be weakened. Depending on the extent and location of the leak, you might need to check the foundations of your home.
If a tap leaks consistently to the extent that it creates a water puddle, it increases the potential for mould to grow. This can result in increased allergies or respiratory problems. Any standing water is also a potential breeding ground for mosquitoes.
