What Does Tap Replacement Involve?

When your tap stops working as it should do, leaking even when it’s off or your mixer tap is constantly dripping, you need to call in a professional plumber. Don’t try to do the job yourself and risk causing further damage to your system that will inevitably cost even more money to repair, get it right the first time and hire an experienced tradesman to do it for you. Not only will it save you a lot of time and unnecessary stress, but it will probably end up cheaper too.

The actual job of replacing a tap varies depending on the type of tap and fixtures you want, but a brief outline of the steps are:

  • Make sure the water supply is turned off, this can be either from the mains or through the use of an isolation valve.
  • Disconnect all supplies from tap to ensure it doesn’t get in the way or is damaged.
  • Loosen, replace or repair all nuts surrounding the tap. The amount will depend on the mechanism of the old tap and the new – some have push fit whereas others are compression fittings.
  • Take the old tap away and replace with the new one, making sure all fixtures are safely installed and the necessary pipes are reconnected.

Replacing your tap when you already have a sink fitted is a notoriously fiddly and difficult job, but a skilled London plumber from UKOOA will be able to do it perfectly for you. This is because they have undergone a great deal of training, have the required skills and will come equipped with all the right tools for the job.

Tap Replacement FAQ

The water flow from my tap is poor, what should I do?

A change in water pressure or appearance is a clear indicator that there’s either a problem with your water system or your tap is faulty. Call in a professional plumber who will be able to diagnose the problem and then fix it.

How long will my tap last?

The lifespan of taps is based on the type and pattern of use. Taps that are used for long periods of time and multiple times a day, like those in commercial buildings, won’t last as long as a tap that is just in a residential home.

However, by going with the best type of your house and having it fitted correctly, you are making sure the tap is going to last as long as possible.

How do I know what size tap to order?

In order to know what size tap to order for your replacement, you need to know the make and model of your previous one. This can be hard to find out if the tap is particularly old and the previous information on it has worn away.

If you hire a team member from UKOOA, you won’t need to worry about this as they will get it all sorted for you. After all, they’re the experts.
