Why Is My Water Tap Leaking?
Tap leaks are a very common phenomenon and one of the most common tasks that we face as well. One of the most common reasons for a leak in a tap is faulty installation. Installing a tap may seem like an easy task but if not installed correctly it can create problems later. The faulty installation of an O-ring or the valve seat can cause it to leak. Another reason for a leaking tap handle is the constant friction between the washer and the valve seat.
The regular use of a tap leads to the rubber washer in the tap to wear out which leads to dripping. The tap handle is held in place by a stem screw which has a small disc, called the O-ring, within it. With time and regular use the O-ring can become loose and cause a leakage. The connection between the spout and the tap, called valve seat, can corrode due to the collection of sediment over time and cause a leak. The best way to avoid such troubles is to get your taps installed from a licensed professional. Additionally, get the washer in your taps regularly changed and clean out all the collected sediment from the spout. If you’re still unsure of what to do, call 24Hour Melbourne Plumbers for a thorough inspection.
