Hearing the dripping water from your tap continuously can be really annoying. On top of the frustration a dripping tap can cause, it will also be wasting water and causing damage to the surrounding area.

A dripping or leaking tap is generally quite simple to fix but it also tends to be one of the most ignored plumbing problems around the home.

Common reasons for a leaky tap

These are some of the most frequent reasons our plumbers are called out to fix a leaking tap.

The tap is worn out

Most taps, especially those in high use areas of the home like the kitchen and bathroom, wear out over time. Components such as the washer and o-ring can break down and cease to keep a seal on the tap, creating a leak.

High water pressure

Who doesn’t like good water pressure at home? Who likes getting frustrated when water pressure is inconsistent or weak? No one!

But did you know that water pressure that is too high can cause a leak? There are two common results of high water pressure.

  • Pipe damage - Strong water pressure can cause damage to the tap or water pipes which struggle to withstand the constant pressure leading to a pipe or tap leak.
  • Excess water - When your water pressure is too high, the pressure causes the water to flow strongly. Water will try to make its way out of a tap, any way it can, resulting in a leak.

Loose parts

A tap might look simple but the truth is, it has several components. Some of the parts of the tap may become dislodged over time. Replacing the parts should be done if tightening the parts together is not enough to solve the problem.

Disregarding even the smallest of leaks could end up causing terrible damage to your home. Call Ryan Old Plumbing to investigate the source of the water leak before you start experiencing any of these:

  • High-water bills
