How Do We Repair A Shower Tap?

Repairing or replacing a shower tap that’s leaking is not the easiest task and should normally be handled by a professional. You require looking into the details of every part within a shower tap. Moreover, when it comes to leaks it’s not necessarily caused due to the wearing out of the tap. A leak can be caused by a breakage in the main pipe or blocks in the shower pipe. The reason for the leak can only be discovered if it is looked at by one of our plumbers. You may be surprised but sometimes the cause of the leak is in a completely different part of the house.

A simple leak detection service includes a thorough inspection of all the plumbing systems within your homes. If we are not able to find any other reason why your shower tap might be leaking, we disassemble the tap and have a look at it. Some of the most common reasons for a leak in the tap has to be general use or corrosion and rusting of the inner seals. Often the rubber O-rings and gaskets that seal connections between moving metal parts wear down with time and use. A simple replacement of these parts or the entire tap is the best solution.

What To Do & What Not To Do!

When it comes to handling leaking shower taps, there are a few do’s and don’ts you have to keep in mind. Our first instinct when we discover a leaky faucet turns it in the opposite direction as hard as possible. This amount of twisting is not good for your wrist or the tap. Over-tightening the tap will simply make the situation worse because it might affect the valve within the tap. Whenever you discover a leak in your shower tap, call us immediately. The next thing to do is to turn off your main water supply. You do not want to waste a huge amount of water in the time you wait for us to arrive. Additionally, we always make sure that we use absolutely new parts if they are being replaced. Moreover, making sure that new parts are untouched and completely scratch-free is also important. The slightest of scratches in the parts will create a problem for the threads to fit onto the nuts properly.
