Leaking Taps

We are fully accredited City & Guilds plumbers offering top quality plumbing services at competitive rates.

We can repair leaking taps but if they are old, corroded and unsightly, it may be preferable to replace them with a set of new ones.

Taps are a key element in the overall style and functionality of any bathroom and choosing the right ones will ensure that you and your family enjoy years of pleasure and trouble free service. Here are a few pointers:

  1. Check tap holes and pipe sizes. Some baths and basins come pre-drilled with 1, 2 or 3 holes. This may determine whether you need a mono mixer, standard double or double with a separate water spout. Standard tap sizes are, bath 3/4” and basin 1/2”.
  2. Know your water pressure. Combi boilers come in medium to high pressure models while gravity fed pressures are generally in the lower range. Reputable tap brands will specify the pressure each model requires in order to function properly.
  3. Go for the best quality your budget will allow. Solid brass is extremely corrosion resistant. Recycled brass is more economical while “virgin brass” has fewer impurities which give the water that “tap” taste. Ceramic disks last longer than rubber washers.
  4. Choose the style of your dreams. Taps can become a focal point in your bathroom or kitchen. Choose a theme which suits both home and lifestyle. There is an amazing variety of styles available from Edwardian-porcelain-effects to floor-mounted pillars, up-stand levers and modern waterfall spouts with touch sensitive controls.

Throw out those old leaking taps and unlock the true value in your home with a set of beautiful new designer taps. We are passionate about beautiful kitchens and bathrooms.
