Why you should fix your dripping tap


The most complained about plumbing problem in the UK is a dripping tap, with more than one in ten UK homeowners experiencing this issue in the past five years.

Dripping taps, even a small trickle, can waste both water and consumers’ money.

Fixing a dripping tap could save homeowners at least £19 a year if they are on a water meter, as well as 5550 litres of water. *

The study of 2000 homeowners, commissioned by the Water Regulation Advisory Scheme (WRAS), also found that leaking pipes, clogged drains and a continuously running toilet topped the list of homeowners’ complaints.

  1. Dripping tap (14%)

  2. Leaking pipe (11%)

  3. Slow or clogged drains (10%)

  4. Running toilet (9%)

  5. Burst pipe (6%)

  6. Water temperature issue (5%)

  7. Noisy pipes (5%)

  8. Frozen pipes (4%)

  9. Flooding (3%)

  10. Water storage tank failure (2%)

Fixing faulty and leaking water fixtures and fittings such as taps, pipes, and toilets as soon as possible is a good idea, both to save water and money where homes have a water meter fitted. Water leaks can cause significant damage if not dealt with promptly.

Many common plumbing problems can be prevented by using a qualified plumber and only installing water fittings or fixtures that have been tested to show they meet legal requirements.”

So, if you have a suspected water leak call your plumber today, prevent wastage and damage to your home before it becomes a headache.
