Leaking Taps

You know, you really don’t have to sleep with that drip tonight.

Drips drive you crazy and they cost you money

Sadly, many Wellington households have got drips, but you don’t have to put up with them.

Drain Unblocking
If your leaking tap drips at 60 drops per minute, that adds around 21 litres per day to your water bill or 150L per week. And that equates to over 7,000 litres of water a year.

Not a drip you want hanging around.

Not Fixing Taps Can Cost

Just imagine, if you have a hot tap that’s leaking, you will also be wasting electricity. If leaks from the bath, shower or sink waste pipes that are left dripping, your home’s framing or foundations could be damaged and build-up of moisture under the house may cause dampness and subsequent health problems.

Water rates in Wellington are on the rise, and the council is discussing more increases.

Considering how much water a leaking tap can waste over the course of a year, I don’t imagine there are many Wellington families who can afford an additional $100.00 or more to their water bills.

And that doesn’t even take into consideration the other expenses that a leaking tap can create.

Testimonial for Central Plumbing

We have carried out renovations to two homes in Newtown and have employed many tradesmen across a variety of skills. Since meeting Anthony, we have used him exclusively for plumbing work. He is professional, honest, friendly and provides huge value in his pricing, skill and pragmatic approach. Anthony is a tradesman able to provide reactive fixes, tactical small pieces of work and larger scale project work. He is a skilled tradesman with great communication skills. I have recommended Anthony to members of my family who now employ him regularly.

We all know just how annoying a leaking tap can be

You know you have to get that leaky tap fixed, but you never quite get around to it. Leave it long enough, a leak can damage the tap so much that you’ll need replacing the entire tap system, upping the repair cost.

It’s easy to be tempted to do a ‘quick fix’ bit of DYI plumbing yourself, but what are you risking if the problem keeps returning because you didn’t do it right the first time?

We recommend getting your leaking tap fixed professionally, and sorting that drip out once and for all. Calling in a plumber to fix your leak now is a small cost compared to what you’re pouring down the drain and potential damage to your property down the line.

Please be aware that in Australia and New Zealand, almost all plumbing work must be carried out by a licensed plumber. In particular, it is illegal for anyone other than a licensed plumber to perform work on any system connected to the main water supply or the sewer system. This is to prevent the contamination of the water supply and other serious problems. If you want to do some DIY plumbing work at your place, we strongly recommend you check with council before going ahead.
