One of the most frequently used features of any plumbing system are the taps. Whether we’re washing dishes, hands, or running a bath, we use taps multiple times a day. The running of these taps is dependent on the continued functionality of the plumbing setup they’re connected to, as well as the quality of the taps themselves. To ensure that your taps continue to run effectively, it is essential to have up to date models and keep on top of maintenance.

Taps have become an essential feature of every household as we use them every day for vital tasks. Depending on your interior furnishings, you can get taps to suit the style of your home that are still compatible with your existing plumbing system. Ideally, taps will provide both hot and cold water on demand at a suitable pressure. For taps to maintain high performance, it is essential that they are cleaned and checked regularly.
Due to their frequent use, it’s common for taps to develop issues over time. While some problems appear to be minor, it is imperative that they’re dealt with promptly to avoid costly repairs in the future. In some cases, faults such as hot water problems occur because the tap is an older model that has degraded over the years. It is for this reason that many homeowners opt to replace their taps if they’re part of a dated plumbing system.
There are several tell-tale signs that something may be wrong with your taps. It might be time to get in touch with expert plumbers if you’ve noticed any of the following:
When having new taps installed, it is vital to have the process carried out by a professional team so that the new feature is integrated with your existing plumbing correctly.

If you are experiencing problems with your tap, our team will arrange a convenient date to visit your site and carry out an inspection. Whilst your leaking tap might be the obvious location for your plumbing fault, we can use state of the art equipment, such as fibre-optic cameras, if a leak or blockage still persists. We’ll find the source of the issue, as faulty taps are quite often not the origin of a plumbing issue and so we’ll check your system thoroughly. This process is far quicker than traditional inspection methods and means that we can identify problems without being destructive. Plumbing faults can be anywhere within your system and we are equipped to scrutinise all types of plumbing checks.
Once the problem has been found, our team will then employ the appropriate repair technique or tap replacement. Our specialist plumbing equipment allows us to clear blockages, fix leaking pipes, and much more. After carrying out a tap repair, our team will then advise you on how to keep your taps from breaking down again in the future. In some instances, the extent of the damage may mean a replacement is necessary, in which case our team will be happy to install a new model for you.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
