The Annoying Leaking Tap

One of the most annoying things has to be a leaking tap. The constant dripping gets into your brain, while the water wastage is entirely avoidable.

When your taps are mimicking a tap dance throughout the night, you don’t have to put up with it. Contact Metropolitan Plumbing for a solution.

Available during the day and after hours, we have 24/7 plumbers near you, in all Australian metro cities. So, if your leaking tap suddenly explodes into a plumbing emergency we can be at your door within an hour* with a long term solution ready to go.

What Causes a Dripping Tap?

A worn out, or incorrectly installed washer is the most common cause of a leaking or dripping tap. Other common reasons include:

  • Loose O-ring
  • Worn seals
  • Corrosion of the valve seat
  • Loose parts
  • Broken pipes
  • The age of your tapware
  • Your water pressure is too high

Our plumbers can inspect your leaking tap and correctly identify the cause. They will install a new washer, replace the O-rings and re-seat and re-grease the spindle threads. This will ensure that your taps are running perfectly once again.

If your tapware is beyond repair (due to damage or extreme age) your attending plumbing will have a range of new and modern tapware for you to choose from. They can then install it quickly and easily for you. A new tap installation can also provide a whole new look for your bathroom, kitchen or laundry.

If you require a leaking tap repair, don’t leave it until you see the increase in your water bill. You can have your leaking tap repaired straight away by an expert from Metropolitan Plumbing.

FAQ - Your Leaking Tap Questions, All in One Place

Have a question about leaking taps? We've got the answers you're looking for.

Water hammer is the sound of fast moving water suddenly stopping when a tap turns off. The water collides with the closed valve and a hydraulic shock causes loud banging noises. Left unattended, water hammer can lead to an array of major plumbing problems down the road including burst pipes, loose fittings, fixture damage and more. A leaking tap could certainly be a sign of water hammer. Over time it wears down fixtures, and long term leakage means you will need to have your plumbing assessed.
A tap dripping once per second will waste 12,000 litres of water in a year! Leaving your dripping tap will mean you’re paying for water you’re not even using. On top of this cost, this wasted water isn’t helping the cause for a more environmentally-friendly world. A leaking tap can also cause structural damage to your home if left too long. You could end up with damage to your foundations, walls or floors, all of which will likely cost you more to repair than having your leaking tap fixed.
