Your taps work hard – making sure you have water to shower every day, wash your clothes and clean the dishes after meals. And because they generally don’t need regular maintenance work, it’s easy to take them for granted or overlook small leaks.
But even the smallest of leaks can push up your bills and cause water damage to tiles, floorboards and walls. Most of us live in hard-water areas and over time limescale and other debris can build up and make taps difficult to turn.
So to avoid any tap emergencies, we recommend asking a qualified plumber to give your taps and pipework a thorough once over. Your plumber will check all washers or ceramic disc cartridges and replace them if they’re worn out. They’ll remove any limescale and debris, check the water pressure and see if the pipe connections are secure. If they spot more serious issues, they’ll suggest the best solutions
By looking after your taps and pipework regularly, you’re more likely to avoid an emergency. And it makes sense to get someone local to maintain your taps and do other general plumbing work. We have hundreds of professionals on our platform, so we can match you with a qualified plumber in your area in minutes.
You can coordinate diaries and 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 Hero.
