How Serious Is Your Leaking Tap Or Dripping Tap?

When it comes to bathroom plumbing, there’s nothing more irritating than a leaking or dripping tap. Whether it’s your bathroom sink or your shower that’s dripping away, our experienced Perth water leak plumbers can fix it the first time, every time.


The cause of a Perth leaking tap or dripping tap is not always apparent. Therefore, it’s best to get any plumbing problems looked at by a qualified tradesman who can inspect and assess your system as a whole.

If your bathroom tap is still leaking even after you’ve turned it off as firmly as you can, then the cause of your problem is likely to be a worn washer, cartridge or damaged breech. If the water is spurting out of other parts of the tap while it’s running, then your issue could be more serious. The problem can be a broken pipe or tapware. No matter how big or small your issue is, our team can give you expert advice and fix it on the spot.

Identifying The Cause Of The Leak

If a tap continues dripping when it is turned off, it means the washer attached to the jumper valve needs replacing. Is the water flowing or oozing out between the tap body and spindle or out from under the cover plate when the tap is turned on? This could mean that O-ring needs to be replaced. The copper pipes containing both the cold and hot water feed should also be re-seated internally. To ensure removing any grooving from the internal wall and returning it to the original smooth finish, it is important to use the correct tool. You can rely on GA PERRY team to do this for you!
