Maybe your tap is broken. Or perhaps it’s time for more modern fittings. But if you don’t have the right tools and know-how, removing, replacing and installing new taps will be tricky. The work involves your home’s main water supply and specific pipe connections – so we recommend asking a qualified plumber for help.
Your plumber will discuss the work with you in detail and tell you whether the new taps are a good match for your water pressure and existing pipework. If everything is in order, they’ll turn off the main water supply and remove the pipes from the bottom of the tap. After fitting the new tap, they’ll secure everything and create a watertight seal with a fibre or rubber ring. Finally, they’ll switch your water supply back on, check for leaks and clean their work area before they go.
