What Causes a Leaking Tap?

A leaking tap can be a nuisance in any home, and it can also waste a considerable amount of water over time, increasing your water bills. There are several reasons why a tap may leak, and it's essential to identify the cause to determine the best course of action for repair.

Old Washers
The washer is a small rubber component located inside the tap's valve, responsible for creating a watertight seal when the tap is turned off. Over time, the washer can become worn out or damaged, causing water to leak out. In this case, replacing the washer is usually a simple and cost-effective repair.

Valve Seat
A possible cause of a leaking tap is a corroded or damaged valve seat. If the valve seat becomes corroded or damaged, it can prevent the washer from creating a proper seal, leading to a leak.

Damaged Faucet
The faucet is the visible part of the tap that you turn to control the water flow. If the faucet becomes damaged or worn out, it can cause water to leak out of the tap. In some cases, replacing the entire faucet may be necessary to stop the leak.

Water Pressure
Water pressure can also cause a tap to leak. When it's is too high, it can put excess strain on the tap's internal components, causing them to wear out or become damaged over time. If we suspect that this is causing your tap to leak, it may be necessary to install a reduction valve to regulate the water force and prevent further damage.


How do you fix a dripping tap?
To fix a dripping tap, you first need to turn off the water supply to the tap. Then, disassemble the tap and inspect the components to identify the faulty part. Common causes of a leaking tap include worn out washers, O-rings, or valve seats. We recommend contacting Melbourne Plumbing Co if you are not experienced with this kind of repair.
What causes a tap to keep dripping?

The most common causes include worn-out washers, O-rings, or valve seats, a faulty cartridge or ceramic disc, loose or damaged parts, or high water pressure. In some cases, a leaking tap may also be due to corrosion or mineral build-up inside the tap.

Why should a leaking tap be repaired immediately?

A leaking tap can waste a significant amount of water, increasing your water bills and causing damage to your property over time. In addition, the constant drip can be annoying and disrupt your daily routine. If left unrepaired, a leaking tap can also lead to further damage to the tap and the surrounding fixtures, resulting in more expensive repairs.

Is a dripping tap serious?

A dripping tap can lead to serious consequences over time. A leaking tap wastes water, which not only increases your utility bills but also contributes to water scarcity. Additionally, it can cause damage to the surrounding area, such as water stains or mould growth, which can be hazardous to your health.

Should I call a plumber for a dripping tap?

While some people may attempt to fix a faulty tap themselves, it is often best to call a professional plumber. A plumber can quickly and effectively identify the cause of the leak and provide a lasting solution. Attempting to remove a tap handle and fix a leaking tap yourself can lead to further damage to the tap or surrounding fixtures, resulting in more expensive repairs.
