We had a faulty hot water unit on our roof, which was in a tough spot to access. Byron did the most amazing job accessing the unit, disconnecting it, and installing a new gas unit in better spot - which has worked seamlessly ever since. He’s also a lovely guy and his quote was competitive. We’ll be using him again next time we need a plumber - thanks again Byron!

Tap Leak Repairs

Tap leak repairs usually involve disassembling the tap and replacing worn or damaged parts.

Our plumbers will also clean and lubricate certain parts to ensure that the tap is functioning properly.  In some cases, the entire tap may need to be replaced if it is too damaged to repair.

After completing the repair, our plumbers will test the tap to ensure that it is no longer leaking and is working properly. They can machine the parts on-site to ensure the washer sits against a flat surface and does not continue to damage the breach from leaks and create a perfect seal.

We also use special washers that last a lot longer and ensure leaks or dripping taps won’t be a problem anymore.

Tap Servicing & Cleaning

We provide full tap servicing and replacement service on all popular tap-ware brands and types, from Hot and Cold water taps to Mixer Taps and outside garden taps.

We take the time to dismantle the whole tap and replace everything to make sure it’s as good as new. This includes replacing the fibre body washers, O-rings in the shaft, cleaning the tap spindles and re-grease for smooth turning.

We always install premium brand hydro seal washers to ensure the tap service lasts longer than it ever has before.

Tap & Faucet Maintenance

Tap maintenance services involve performing routine maintenance on a tap or faucet to ensure that it is functioning properly and efficiently.

This may include tasks such as:

  • Cleaning the tap to remove any dirt or debris that has accumulated on it. This can help prevent leaks and other problems.
  • Applying lubricant to the moving parts of the tap to ensure that they are functioning smoothly. This can help prevent wear and tear and extend the life of the tap.
  • Our plumbers will check the tap for any signs of leaking and take the necessary steps to repair it if needed.
  • We may replace any worn or damaged parts on the tap, such as the washer or O-ring.


After completing the maintenance, our plumbers will test the tap to ensure that it is functioning properly and does not leak. Performing regular maintenance on a tap can help extend its life and prevent costly repairs in the future.

It is generally recommended to have a tap inspected and serviced by a plumber at least once a year.

Tap Leak Repair And Replacement

Tap replacement is sometimes the best solution when we replace mixers or tap-ware.

We always replace the flexy hoses, mini stops and cover plates to ensure the whole section of plumbing got an upgrade and is going to last.

The situation may call for other repairs or installations as part of the tap replacement process. For example, they may need to install a new drain or supply lines. They may also need to connect the tap to the hot and cold water supply lines, which may involve soldering or using compression fittings.

After completing the installation, our plumbers will test the tap to ensure that it is functioning properly and does not leak.

They may also provide guidance on how to use and maintain the new tap to ensure that it stays in good working condition.
