I had an inspection and have been told my blocked drain caused by root damage.The plumber came on time and worked for the day. Just he didn’t really show me the damaged part when he dig down so I couldn’t really see how big the damaged is. And has left the dirt in front of my neighbour’s garage.

The Common Causes of 
Dripping Taps
Melbourne Homes

A leaking tap can be a nuisance, but it can also lead to bigger problems if left unaddressed. It's important to understand the common causes of leaks to prevent further damage to your plumbing system. At Dr Leak Plumbing, we have extensive experience in identifying and repairing all types of leaking taps in Sydney and Melbourne properties. Here are some of the most common causes of leaking taps that we have encountered:


• Corroded or damaged pipes:

The pipes that supply water to the tap can become corroded or damaged, leading to leaks in the tap or elsewhere in the plumbing system. This can be caused by age, water quality, or improper installation. When pipes become corroded or damaged, they can develop holes or cracks, which allows water to leak out.

Loose or damaged fittings:

The fittings that connect the tap to the pipe can become loose or damaged, leading to water leaks around the base of the tap. This can be caused by age, excessive use, or improper installation. When fittings become loose or damaged, water can seep out of the connection between the tap and the pipe.

High water pressure:

High water pressure can put excessive stress on taps and their parts, leading to leaks. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including municipal water systems with high pressure, using a pressure washer to clean your home or car, or a malfunctioning pressure relief valve. When water pressure is too high, it can cause fittings, washers, and seals to fail, resulting in leaks.

Faulty or damaged tap spindles:

The spindle inside the tap can become faulty or damaged, leading to water leaks around the base of the tap or around the handle. This can be caused by age, excessive use, or improper installation. When the spindle becomes damaged, it can no longer properly control the flow of water, which can result in leaks.

• Worn-out washers or seals:

The washer or seal inside the tap can wear out over time, causing water to leak out around the tap handle. This can be caused by age, overuse, or mineral buildup in the tap. When the washer or seal becomes worn, it can no longer form a tight seal, which allows water to leak out of the tap.

Key Signs of a Dripping Tap

on Your Property

Leaking taps are a common problem in Melbourne households, and it's important to detect them early to prevent further damage to your plumbing system. At Dr Leak Plumbing, we know that identifying the signs of a leaking tap is crucial to prevent water wastage and damage to surrounding surfaces. Here are some common indicators to look out for:


1. An unexplained increase in your water bill:

If you notice a sudden rise in your water bills without a corresponding increase in water usage, there could be a leak in your plumbing system, including your taps. This is because even small leaks can result in significant water waste over time, which can lead to higher water bills. If you suspect a leak is causing your higher bills, it's important to have it addressed promptly to prevent further damage to your plumbing system and keep your bills under control.

2. Damage or discolouration of surfaces:

If you observe staining or damage to surrounding surfaces, such as the sink or bench, it's a sign of a leak that needs attention. This can occur when water from a leaking tap seeps into the surrounding materials and causes damage or staining. If left untreated, this can cause further damage to the materials and potentially lead to more extensive repairs.

3. Moisture around the base of the tap:

If you notice water around the base of the tap or the surrounding area, it's an indication of a leak that needs to be addressed. This wetness can be caused by water seeping out of the tap itself or by a leak in the pipes connected to the tap. If left untreated, this leak can cause damage to surrounding surfaces and potentially lead to mould growth or other issues.

4. Constant Dripping Sound:

If you hear a continuous dripping sound coming from your tap, it's likely that there's a leak. Even if the dripping is only occasional, it's important to have it checked out as it can lead to wasted water and higher water bills over time. Additionally, a dripping tap can be a sign of a larger problem with your plumbing system, which can cause further damage if left unaddressed.


Why It's Importance to Determine the Cause of a Leak

It's crucial to detect and repair a leaking tap promptly to prevent further damage to your plumbing system and save water. Even a small leak can waste a significant amount of water over time, resulting in higher water bills. Additionally, a leaking tap can cause damage to surrounding surfaces, promote mould growth and create other issues if left untreated.

At Dr Leak Plumbing, our experienced team of experts promptly identifies and resolves leaking tap issues, preventing further damage to your plumbing system. Contact us now to schedule an appointment and experience our high-quality leaking tap repair services in Melbourne.

DIY Techniques to 
Repair Your Leaking Tap

Leaking taps can be a frustrating issue for many Melbourne homeowners. However, if you're handy with tools and enjoy taking on household repairs, there are some simple DIY fixes that you can try before calling in the experts. Here are some common DIY fixes for leaking taps:


• Tightening Loose Parts:

If the tap handle or other parts of the tap are loose, they can cause leaks. You can try tightening these parts using a wrench or pliers to see if this stops the leak.

• Replacing Washers:

Worn-out washers are a common cause of leaking taps. You can replace the washer by unscrewing the tap handle, removing the spindle, and replacing the washer. This is a relatively simple fix that can often stop the leak.

• Replacing O-rings:

O-rings are another component of the tap that can wear out and cause leaks. You can replace the O-ring by unscrewing the tap handle, removing the spindle, and replacing the O-ring.

• Adjusting Water Pressure:

High water pressure can cause leaks in taps. You can try adjusting the water pressure at the main water supply valve to see if this stops the leak.

While these DIY fixes may be effective for minor leaks, it's important to note that they may not always resolve the issue. If the leak persists or if you are unsure about how to address the issue, it's time to call in the experts.
