The sound of that dripping tap late at night can be unbearable costing you precious sleep & money. A leaking hot tap will cost you both of those as well as the additional electricity to heat that wasted water. A slow drip can waste up to 1 litre of water per hour equating to approximately one bathtub of lost water per week, so if you have a leaking tap, call the professionals at Salmon Plumbing to get it fixed right.
Although it may be tempting to fix it yourself & might appear to be easy, it isn’t always the case & can very quickly turn into a disaster. Always call a professional because a simple mistake can prove very costly later. At Salmon Plumbing we:
- Use purpose made, quality tools to undertake the repair
- Use only quality washers, o-rings & jumper valves on your taps
- Always reseat existing tapware to ensure an effective seal between the jumper valve & seat
- Flush out any swarf prior to completion
Salmon Plumbing uses & recommends an extensive range of quality tapware to cater for even the more fastidious buyer. Our plumbers carry a range common taps to be fitted on showers, basins, sinks, laundry tubs and baths.
