Understanding the Leak

Leaking Taps

There are a number of different types of blockages around your home that we recommend you have rectified as soon as you can

  • Taps with washers are the more likely to leak – as the washer becomes warn as it acts like a seal to stop the flow of water.
  • Ceramic disc taps will take a little longer to leak than washer taps – the ceramic disc wears down over time from use and corrosion
  • Mixer taps will generally leak from the cartridge over time
