A dripping or leaking tap can be a niggling irritation and can add unnecessary, additional costs to your water bill. The good news is, the problem can usually be easily resolved by replacing the tap washer or cartridge.
Taps come in two main types: traditional taps and lever taps. Traditional taps rely on a rubber washer that, once worn or perished, will cause the tap to drip as it cannot fully stem the flow of water. Lever handled taps usually only rotate a quarter turn and rely on a ceramic disc cartridge.
The ceramic disc cartridge is often very specific to a certain tap manufacturer and will need to be specially ordered. If the manufacturer cannot be identified then it is sometimes easier to replace the entire tap.
We carry out repairs, replacements and installations of a wide variety of tap styles and brands, including Quooker instant boiling water units, Bristan, Dorn Bracht and Crosswater.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you require assistance in choosing a particular style or manufacturer of tap.
