The most common cause of leaking taps are jumper valves, or as they are more commonly known as washers. A washer is normally made of rubber and is compressed against the valve set in the tap and over time with constant use, the washer can break or split. This can then lead to a leak which causes your tap to leak and drip. When washers are replaced and in working condition, the tap should be able to turn on and off with minimal effort.

Other reasons that you may be experiencing a leaking tap may include a loose o-ring, worn out inlet and outlet seals, continuous and constant high water pressure and the age of your tapware as they tend to deteriorate with time.

A leaking tap that spills water around the sink or counter can begin to rot the surrounding fixtures and is a breeding ground for rot and mould to grow which is a serious health concern for your household. If this small issue is left untreated, it can lead to an even larger issue down the track which can be extremely costly.
