50/50 ... bad start: day 1: outrageously high quote by plumber 1 to replace 50L electric hot water system. Company agreed to lower the price. day 2: plumbers came, installed the new system but connected hot/cold valve wrong way around, so NO hot water. day 3: Marco, plumber 3 came (1 hour late) and fixed issue within 5 minutes. A lot of waiting for plumbers ... Not sure I'd recommend them in the end ...

Your Sydney
 Leaking Tap Repair Experts

Sydney is the largest city in Australia, with a population of over 5 million people. It is a vibrant and bustling city that is home to a diverse range of neighbourhoods, from historic areas like The Rocks to trendy suburbs like Newtown and Surry Hills. With its stunning harbour, beautiful beaches, and world-famous landmarks like the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, Sydney is a top destination for tourists from around the world.

As with any city, Sydney homes and buildings require regular maintenance and repairs to keep them in top condition. One common issue that Sydney homeowners face is leaking taps. According to recent statistics from the ABS, the average Australian household wastes around 12,000 litres of water each year due to leaking taps and other plumbing issues. This not only leads to higher water bills but also contributes to water shortages, which are becoming an increasingly significant issue in many parts of Australia.

At Dr Leak Plumbing, we understand the importance of timely and effective leaking tap repairs. Our team of experienced Sydney plumbers has over 15 years of experience in repairing all types of leaking taps, from minor drips to major leaks. We use the latest tools and techniques to quickly identify the cause of the leak and provide the necessary repairs to fix the issue.

The Common Causes of 
Leaking Taps in Sydney Homes

We at Dr Leak Plumbing have seen a wide range of causes for leaking taps in Sydney homes and businesses. Before we get into how to fix a leaking tap, it's important to understand what causes them in the first place. Here are some of the most common reasons why taps leak:

• Worn-out washers or seals:

The washer or seal inside the tap can wear out over time, which can cause water to leak out around the tap handle.

• Loose or damaged fittings:

The fittings that connect the tap to the pipe can become loose or damaged, which can cause water to leak out around the base of the tap.

• Corroded or damaged pipes:

The pipes that supply water to the tap can become corroded or damaged, which can cause leaks in the tap or elsewhere in the plumbing system.

• High water pressure:

High water pressure can cause excessive stress on taps and their parts, leading to leaks. If you suspect that high water pressure is causing your tap to leak, consider having a pressure-reducing valve installed.

• Faulty or damaged tap spindles:

The spindle inside the tap can become faulty or damaged, which can cause water to leak out around the base of the tap or around the handle.

Key Indicators of a
 Leaking Tap

Leaking taps can be hard to detect at first, but there are some common signs that you can look out for. These include:

1. Dripping sound

If you hear a constant dripping sound coming from your tap, it's likely that there is a leak.

2. Wetness around the base of the tap

If you notice that the area around your tap is wet or damp, even when the tap is turned off, it's a sign of a leak.

3. Staining or damage to surfaces

If you notice staining or damage to surfaces around the tap, such as the sink or bench, it's likely that there is a leak that needs to be addressed.

4. Increased water bills

If you notice a sudden increase in your water bills without a corresponding increase in water usage, it's possible that there is a leak somewhere in your plumbing system, including in your taps.


Importance of Identifying the Cause of the Leak

It's essential to address a leaking tap promptly to prevent further damage to your plumbing system and to save water. Even a small leak can waste a significant amount of water over time and can result in high water bills. In addition, a leaking tap can cause damage to surrounding surfaces and can lead to mould growth and other issues if left untreated.

Our experienced team of experts is skilled at promptly identifying and resolving leaking tap issues, preventing further damage to your plumbing system. Contact us now to book an appointment and experience our high-quality leaking tap repair services firsthand.

DIY Methods to
 Repair Your Dripping Tap

If you're handy with tools and enjoy tackling household repairs, there are some simple DIY fixes that you can try for your leaking taps. These include:

• 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, it's best to call in the experts.


When to Call in the Experts

If you have tried DIY fixes and the leak persists or if you are unsure about how to address the issue, it's time to call in the experts. At Dr Leak Plumbing, we offer fast and efficient leaking tap repair services throughout the Sutherland Shire, Western Sydney, the St George Area and beyond.
