To help you out, here are a few common questions asked about taps in the home!


What should I do if my tap is leaking?


If left unattended, defective or leaking taps can not only erode your fixtures but can also lead to costly structural damage to your home or business (and not to mention your water bill). Modern taps tend to last up to 10 years, however, if you’re hearing that persistent (and annoying) drip of the tap no matter how tightly you turn the handle it’s a clear sign something is wrong. While you may be tempted by a quick DIY fix, it might be important to consult with a licenced professional to assess the damage and determine the best course of action. While a dripping tap may seem small, the ripple effect is extraordinary, wasting up to 24,000 litres of water a year. So, is it time to call in an expert? To help you out, our O’Brien Plumbers have compiled a list of common signs that indicate when your taps may need replacing.

Our trusted team of O’Brien Plumbers are here to help you avoid unwanted surprises. We can inspect your home to identify any potential hazards and help you choose the right tapware. Get in touch with our team of experts today to learn more.


Should I upgrade my tap?


Upgrading your taps instantly breathes new life into any room without the need of a major renovation. It’s also one of the quickest, easiest and cost-effective ways to make a noticeable impact. Try switching out the taps in your bathroom, laundry and kitchen with a matching set to give your home a modern refresh that you’ll love. 

Our team can offer detailed advice around giving your bathroom a cost-effective renovation. Simply call us for some exciting ideas or we can offer hands-on suggestions.

How can I save water in my home?


Looking to save money on your utilities? Have you considered adding aerators to your fixtures to adjust the water flow? Aerators won’t impact the water pressure but can reduce the amount of water you consume. Couple this with a low-flow shower-head to adjust your water usage and you’re on the right track. Alternatively, our O’Brien Plumbing experts can help you enhance your water efficiency by upgrading to a WELS 5 STAR rated tap. 

From emergency repairs to service, maintenance and home renovations, O’Brien Plumbing is here to help you make the best decisions for your home. To ensure you feel confident and secure in choosing the right product, our team of licenced Plumbers will come to you to inspect and discuss your current tapware and water usage.
