Why endure it when you can easily call in our expert plumbers at Midrand West in the broad Midrand area who will repair any kind of leaking pipe in a professional manner with upmarket tools and replacement parts?
The leaking Tap Washer
A damaged or worn out tap washer is the reason behind your dripping taps. These washers are usually a simple and easy fix and are generally available from most regional hardware stores.
The best way to find the washer is by unscrewing the cap on top of the tap handle and looking inside for a small grub screw underneath the hot or cold indicator button. In some cases this can be done with a slot-headed screwdriver and in other instances it may require the help of an adjustable spanner or spanners.
If the dripping is still there after you have uninstalled the washer, it is probably a more serious problem and will need to be fixed by a plumbing professional. You should also turn off the water meter and inspect for any leaks before repairing your taps.
