What Are Some Common Tap Issues?
Issues with taps in your home can be annoying, expensive and may even cause costly repairs. A leaking tap or burst flexi hose can cause your water bill to go through the roof. A leaking pipe can also mean that moisture inside your walls could cause mould issue and create an environment very attractive to termites.
• Noisy taps
Noisy taps are more likely to occur in copper or iron pipes than in plastic as metal amplifies the sound. A noisy tap may be caused by a fault in plumbing design, a badly fitted washer or a washer seat that requires cleaning.
• Broken Flexi Hose
AFlexi-hoses are very common in modern homes and may be found on sinks, basins and toilets. Unfortunately, flexi hoses have a finite lifespan – generally they burst after ten years of age although they can burst earlier than this if you are unlucky. A burst flexi hose occurs when the braided inner lining breaks causing the rubber inside to expand.
• Leaky tap
Water leaking from your tap is by far the most common plumbing issue with taps. A leaking tap can be caused by a wide range of issues including damaged or worn out washers, incorrectly installed washers or corrosion.
