Leaking Tap Repairs In Melbourne

Going crazy because of a dripping tap? Hire Blue Diamond Plumbing for leaking tap repairs.

The sound of a leaking tap is perhaps one of the most annoying sounds there is on the planet. Persistent, loud (or soft, but just as irritating), and nagging, the sound can render people sleepless throughout the night or unable to concentrate on tasks that require a calm or distraction-free environment.

It doesn’t help that when your tap continues to drip for extended periods of time, at the back of your mind you’re also worried about how much water your household is wasting, and how much your water bills could be rising because of the leak.

What could be causing your taps to leak? Your local plumbers will tell you that it could be any of the following possibilities:

A cartridge that needs replacing

If your taps have one or two handles that are operated by easily turning these handles, then they are called cartridge taps. When these show signs of leaking, it generally means that the entire valve found inside the tap will have to be replaced.

A damaged O-ring

O-rings are found in several kinds of taps, including cartridge taps (described earlier) and compression taps—ones that come with two separate handles that you can tighten or loosen in order to bring out hot or cold water. This component is typically installed inside the tap handles for the purpose of providing a waterproof seal. This seal can break when the o-ring comes loose or is damaged, and a leaking handle is the result. Your plumber can fix the leak by installing a correctly sized replacement o-ring.

A corroded or improperly installed washer

Washers are only found in compression-type taps. They are actually one of the most common causes of leaks in taps, primarily because these small parts are prone to damage and corrosion. It’s also possible that they are improperly positioned inside the compression valve, thus resulting in a leak. Replacing washers in each tap handle could be all that needs to be done to stop the leak. As simple as fixing these possible causes for leaks may seem, it can also be quite easy to improperly install the crucial parts of your taps, even if you use the correct component. In such cases, the leaks would remain—still driving you out of your wits with the noise, wastage, and inconvenience they cause. Your only option, then, should be to call in the plumbing professionals who can effectively solve your leak issues once and for all.

100% recommend. These guys were the fourth plumbing business I tried in as many months (and the second in the same day). Our shower hadn't been working for 9 days, we'd been royally screwed around by one plumber who was a consistent no-show, and a different plumber said we'd need to overhaul the whole shower for 7.5k to get it working again. Blue Diamond Plumbing was a very worthy last resort when we were in desperate times - they found an issue that none of the three previous plumbers had found and fixed it within an hour, and they were the cheapest!
Not only did Blue Diamond solve my plumbing issues but managed to track down and fix a problem that was affecting myself and 4 of my neighbors - much to the delight of all!   On time, professional, explained and showed everything, and very happy with the result. Great work and I highly recommend!

Great service, Nick identified the issue with the blocked  kitchen sink drain. Fixed it quickly within 30 minutes. Cleaned up water on the floor. Was respectful and removed his shoes to not bring mud inside the house. Reasonably priced and professional. Thank you very much. Would be pleased to recommend to anyone requiring a Plumber.
