Tap Repairs & Installation Specialists – Portsmouth

When it comes to plumbing in your home, there can be little debate that taps are by far and away the most used fixture for the vast majority of people. They are used when we draw a bath. When we brush our teeth. When we do the dishes. Even when we water the plants or wash the car, it’s understandable to want high-quality fittings for something that will get used so often, and it’s this frequent usage that is also the reason you’re more likely to notice small faults developing. Faults that you might otherwise have seen in less-used fixtures or appliances. A blockage may be a more pressing issue, but you may not be aware of that problem until happens. When you do notice a problem developing with your taps, or you just want to change your taps for a different fixture, you should call No1PHD to have it dealt with quickly and with minimal fuss. We have experts based in Portsmouth ready to take care of things for you, just give us a call.

Most Common Types of Household Tap

There are several different styles of tap that can be found in an average home, largely determined by the location you find them and the use-case for which they were intended. For example, your bathroom sink will usually have a standard hot and cold tap. Your bath, on the other hand, may have a mixer tap with a plunger for switching between the taps and the shower. Your kitchen sink may be a standard hot and cold tap like your bathroom sink, perhaps with a taller neck to allow easy washing of dishes, but it could also have a flexible neck and shower setting to make doing the dishes that little bit easier. There are also outdoor taps for attaching garden hoses to. Most taps in a location that receives both hot and cold water can come in the form of two individual taps, or one mixer tap that receives both water feeds and can be adjusted to get the desired mix of hot and cold water. Whatever flavour of tap you have or want to fit in your home, No1PHD can help with our expert tap installation services.

Couldn’t have asked for a faster resolution to our drainage conundrum. Nothing was too much for these guys who were brilliant throughout.

Common Tap Faults

Probably the most common fault in household taps is a deterioration of the internal mechanisms of the tap itself. This is caused by the constant twisting and turning of the tap over time, which as we’re sure you’ll understand, is unavoidable (unless you plan to not use your taps). Higher quality taps will last longer, but this wear and tear will always happen. Internal wear and tear will usually manifest as the tap begins to feel loose, perhaps having loose “spots”, and either never fully turning off, or never fully opening. Other faults may be more visible, such as taps coming loose in their mounting, which can result in the whole tap turning when you attempt to turn it on or off. Leaking Taps are, of course, a clear sign of a fault. Once you notice these faults, it’s only a matter of time before they get worse, so call No1PHD today.

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.
