Have you noticed a weird pattern of your taps leakage? Does it happen at certain time during the day? Perhaps it only drips when a lot of water is being used? If any of the above sound familiar then your tap may be damaged due to the high water pressure it’s trying to cope with. Water pressure can prevent water from flowing away from a certain point, this means it may back and leak out at another place such as another tap or even the toilet causing it to overflow. If you’re not sure why your tap or taps are leaking, or you’ve noticed a weird pattern in its leakages give us a call straight away.
Broken plumbing may be one of the reasons why your tap is dripping. Though it is more of an uncommon cause, it is possible that a pipe in your plumbing system is at fault.
