Inner West and Eastern Sydney Plumbers

Leaking or squeaking taps

Is every leaking tap caused by a leaking washer? No!

Taps are made up of several parts all of which wear down over time (See our Taps Diagram below). The washer is often the first to go and is often a sign of an ageing tap. Other parts will also deteriorate and fail without attention. A faulty washer causes leaks , squeaks and screeches.

What is a tap service?

Depending on your tap, it can involve one or more of :

  • Changing the tap washer, the o-rings  and jumper valve.
  • Greasing the spindle.
  • Installing new stainless steel seats.
  • Grinding back the tap housing.


  • Install a special valve with a 5 year guarantee. It stops the leak, protects the seat of the tap and reduces wear while making the taps easier to turn off.

A tap service will fix a leaking, screeching or squeaking tap.
