Outside taps are great when it’s time to wash the car or water the garden. But if your tap suddenly stops working and you don’t have the right tools or know-how, fixing or replacing it can be tricky.
To replace your outside tap, you’ll need to work with your home’s water supply and make the right pipe connections – so we recommend asking a qualified plumber to help.
Your plumber will do a quick assessment of your current pipework, connections and isolation valves. They’ll turn off your home’s main water, remove the old tap and check the backplate to make sure it’s stable and appropriate for the new fitting. If everything is in order, they’ll install the new tap, switch your water supply back on and make sure there are no leaks inside or outside your property. Then they’ll clean their work area and be on their way - leaving you with your brand spanking new outside tap!
A faulty outside tap can be frustrating – especially in summer when you need to water your garden and flowerbeds. To replace your tap as quickly as possible, it’s best to get someone local to help you. We have hundreds of professionals on our platform, so we can match you with a qualified plumber in your area in minutes.
You can decide on a date that suits you both. Your plumber won’t have to drive far, so there’s no need to factor in travelling costs and you can book them for emergencies and any other non-urgent jobs too. It’s never been easier to find a reliable local plumber than with Local Heroes.
