It’s not always easy to spot a dripping outside tap. Especially in the winter months when you don’t spend a lot of time outdoors. But left for too long, your water bills will creep up – so it’s best to fix it straight away. Most of the times a leaky tap needs a new washer or valve seating.
If you’re not sure how to change a washer or fix the valve seating, we recommend getting a qualified plumber out to help. They’ll first do a thorough assessment to work out what the problem is and turn off your water supply before starting the work. Your plumber will remove the head of the tap and old washer, fit the new one and lubricate all the parts. If the problem sits with the valve seat, they’ll use a reseating tool to fix it or simply replace the part if it’s beyond repair.
We make sure our tradespeople abide by the highest levels of service and standards – both in work and demeanour. They are honest and fair and will always give you a quote before starting the work. If they’re running late for some reason, they’ll let you know in advance and call before they arrive. All our Local Heroes are polite, friendly and will treat you and your property with respect. Our team vets every single one of them to make sure they have the right qualifications, skills and tools to do the job quickly and professionally.
They’ll keep you posted throughout the job, so you’re never left in the dark. Our platform also makes it easy to pay – simply use your debit or credit card to settle up online and we’ll guarantee the work for 12 months.
