My taps won't stop dripping. How much water will I be wasting if I don't get them serviced immediately? Mark - Burnside

Hi Mark,

A dripping tap can waste more than 2,000 litres of water a month. That's 24,000 litres a year! It is therefore very important to get your leaking taps repaired immediately!

To repair your leaking taps may be as simple as changing a washer. My team could do this for you at any time. Please contact my office to arrange a time if you would like us to repair this problem for you.

Another tap tip: Turn taps off firmly, but avoid excessive force that may damage the tap washer and cause the tap to leak.
