From rain to sun and snow to frost, outside taps need to ensure all kinds of weather. Which means they may need a bit more maintenance than taps inside your home. If your outside tap is leaking, you could waste up to 140 litres a week – so we recommend asking a plumber to come and help you as soon as possible.
To repair an outside tap, you’ll have to remove the tap’s headgear. And without the right tools, it can be a challenging task. Your plumber will quickly assess the situation and switch off your main water supply before starting any work. They’ll use a specialised tap-splitter kit to remove the headgear safely and replace the washer. If there’s a problem with your tap’s valve seat, they’ll use a reseating tool to fix it or fit a new one. Your plumber will also take a quick look at the adjoining pipework and connections to make sure everything is in order.
When it comes to doing work in and around your house, you want to hire a tradesperson you can trust, and finding someone reliable is not always easy. At Local Heroes, we take the hassle out of searching and deciding on the right local plumber. We’ll match you with a qualified plumber in your area to repair your outside tap.
