Leaking Taps and Pipes

If you have a plumbing leak, either in pipework or leaking taps, it’s better to get it fixed sooner rather than later. Not only could you be wasting water but the leak could be damaging your property too.

Our expert plumbers can be called on to fix any type of plumbing leak. Whether it’s replacing a rubber washer or ceramic disc in a dripping tap, or replacing a section of plumbing pipework that’s damaged, we’re here to help.

Customer reviews

  • Cannot recommend their services enough - Joe was fantastic! Friendly competent and knowledgeable - exactly what we wanted and not at all what we had experienced from other companies! EXCELLENT 10/10.

    Alex, West Ealing, W13

  • The booking process was clear and efficient. The plumber who arrived was really helpful, conscientious and thorough. He was very personable and super polite, even taking his shoes off before treading on the stair carpet rather than me having to ask.

    Aylsa, Chiswick, W4

  • Very happy with the service. The plumber identified the problem quickly, had the spare part in his van and replaced it quickly. Nice guy and great customer service. Thank you.

Repairing leaking taps

Our plumbers carry basic spare parts in their vans. It means that leaks on most dual-lever and compression valve taps can be fixed without needing to order specific parts.

Single-lever operated mixer taps that use ceramic cartridges aren’t as straightforward to fix. The cartridges are usually specific to a single manufacturer and our plumbers don’t carry them as spares – there are far too many different types. Fortunately, with our huge network of plumbing suppliers throughout London, our plumbers can order, collect and fit replacements within a day or two.

A tip from us

If you’re going to try and repair a leaking tap yourself make a careful note of the steps you take to disassemble the tap. This will help prevent any problems putting the parts of the tap back together.

Depending on the type of taps you have, fixing leaks can be relatively straightforward. A set of basic tools are needed. Replacement rubber washers, ceramic discs and O-rings for dual-lever and compression valve taps are available from DIY stores.
