Taps & Mixers
Leaking taps can be a real drip. Yep, we said it.
They’re extremely common in both domestic and commercial settings, and it’s best to get them fixed straight away as they can waste litres of water a day. While it may not seem like a big issue at first, consider that one drop per second equates to 60 drops a minute. That’s 86,400 drops a day. Twenty drops per teaspoon makes it 75 litres a week; that’s nearly 4000 litres of wasted water per year, just from one dripping tap! Additionally, if it’s a hot tap that’s leaking, it’s not only costing you in wasted water but wasted energy as well. Not to mention the annoying sound and unsightly stains a repetitive drip can leave, resulting in costly replacements down the track. Don’t put it off, give us a call and let us fix your leaking tap before it becomes a real issue rather than a nuisance.
Here at Watson Services we encounter leaking taps literally every day, so we have the knowledge and expertise to fix them fast. There are a few ways we tackle the issue.
Servicing can be a cost effective way to add more life to your taps, and a washer change is often all that’s needed. It may seem like a simple job, but experience trumps enthusiasm when it comes to quality plumbing work, so let us give you a hand!
If your taps are at the end of their lifespan and we can’t fix them, we have plenty of replacement options to choose from. Tapware can change the look, feel and functionality of an area affordably, so if it’s just an upgrade that you’re after we have access to a wide range of stylish mixers and taps to suit your needs.
While most leaking taps are not considered an emergency job and can be booked in the next day, we understand that some cases are more concerning and need to be attended straight away. If you’re unsure, or just want to discuss the issue, then give us a call and we’ll be happy to provide advice over the phone. Our experienced plumbers will give you the best advice on how to proceed, and when onsite will diagnose the issue accurately and provide efficient remedies.
