Need help with dripping leaking tap repairs in Perth?

dripping tap is more than just an annoyance – it can waste over 2,000 litres of water a month! This adds up to over 24,000 litres a year, and when it’s a hot tap, it can also be an expensive waste of energy. That’s why it’s important that, at the first sign of a dripping tap, you contact Plumbdog on 1300 884 146. Whistle and we will come! How easy is it to fix a dripping tap? Fixing a leaking tap is a job that just about every home handyman has tried, but there’s usually more to it than just replacing the washer. It must also be reseated to prevent any further leakage from between the tap seat and washer – a tricky job, if you’re not an experienced tap plumber, to do without causing permanent damage to the tap assembly. Your dripping taps fixed on time, every time   Our tap servicing and replacement procedures are carried out to only the highest standards We will disassemble the tap without damaging it, reseat the set, clean and lubricate the spindle, and replace all O-rings, body washers and jumper valves. This restores the tap to near as-new condition, preventing further water wastage and saving you from expensive tap repair or replacement. Contact us now for expert dripping tap repairs Don’t put up with that annoying drip any longer. If you have a leaky tap and need a plumber in Perth with the experience and expertise to get the job done right first time, give Plumbdog a whistle! Servicing a standard tap and replacing the washer and O-Ring Whilst we recommend a leaking tap only be fixed by a qualified plumber (as incorrect servicing of a tap can cause irreversible damage to the tap body), it can in most cases be done by carefully following the steps below:
  1. Turn off the main water supply.
  2. Using an adjustable spanner, remove the tap cover, placing a cloth between tap and tool to prevent scratching.
  3. Use an open-ended spanner to unscrew the gland nut, and expose and remove the old washer.
  4. Use a reseating tool to shave the tap seat back to a flat, shiny surface.
  5. Replace the O-ring on the spindle and apply grease.
  6. Flush away filing debris and insert spindle with the new tap washer.
  7. Reassemble the tap (taking care not to overtighten the gland nut) and turn the main water supply back on.
HANDY HINT We always recommend you buy replacement tapware or fixtures from a recognised plumbing supplier, as their items will always be covered by warranty should any fault occur – unlike when you buy from a regular hardware store or chain.

This is the second time we've used Richard and again, the service was excellent. He is quick, efficient, made great recommendations and tidied up. We now have a great in-tap water filter system that doesn't take up much space and a sleek modern looking tap. Thanks again for a great job Richard.

We are really happy with their service. They are qualified, fast into finding / fixing the issue(s). They've always explained what they were doing, why this happened, how they fixed it. They are always happy to have a look, help and have great personalites. I am satisfied and definitely recommend them, so we have had Plumdog fix all our plumbing related issues for a few years now!

We called on Rich to locate a leaking pipe underneath a concrete house slab. Using his thermal and audio detection equipment, he was able to locate the leak in the middle of the house to within 50mm and then expose the corroded pipe and repair with a minimum of damage to the floor. We were impressed with Rich's methodical approach in locating the leak which definitely saved time and unnecessary repairs.

We have an older house with older pipes, but Plumbdog knew how to fix the problem and suggested future planning for renovations! Experienced tradies are the best. Thanks Guys! Job Well done.

Top notch service and advice from Richard, who clearly takes great pride in his work. He serviced my toilet and replaced my hot water system. For each job, he made it clear what needed to be done and what my options were, and then set about getting things done without fuss. I can't recommend Plumbdog highly enough!
