One of the most common plumbing issues that our customers face in their homes is the classic leaking tap situation. We are all familiar with the annoying sound of a dripping tap in the night. Although it may not appear to be a relatively large problem on the surface, a leaking tap in your home does need to be addressed. A dripping tap can waste as much as one litre of water per hour.

When we share this knowledge with our customers, they feel a sense of relief that they got it fixed earlier rather than later. Other than simply saving you money on your water bills, it can be frustrating when you have water going in the wrong direction or the annoyance of a drip that just won’t go away. At My Melbourne Plumber, no job is too small for the call out. Leaking taps are our speciality and one that we see often in our daily work.
