Taps are a central component of any home, and you probably have more of them around your home than you realize. There are the ones on your sinks, of course, but don’t forget the ones in your bathtub, in your shower, and attached to your hose. Any of these can develop problems and require repairs to continue to function properly, and any may need to be replaced. No1PHD’s expert staff can ensure that broken or faulty taps are restored to excellent condition and that new taps are installed properly the first time. You can learn more about our Southampton tap repair and installation services below.
There are many different types of tap problems that you might encounter within your home. The most common of these is leaking, a problem which will not only create rust and drive up your utility bills but also create a steady dripping sound which is sure to drive you crazy. Getting this fixed is obviously a good idea, and the sooner you do it, the better – leaving the dripping unattended will allow it to get worse and give the rust more time to set in. A licensed plumber will know what needs to be done to get it to stop.
That’s not the only problem you might see, though. If you’ve had your taps for a long time, one of the knobs may have developed a stripped stem, which will cause the tap to swing loosely when you try to turn it. Fixing this will usually require replacing that part. It’s also possible for taps so heavily corroded that their function becomes impaired; you might have trouble turning the knobs or hear an unpleasant grating sound when they are twisted. This is because corrosion often leaves extensive visual clues like tarnished or discoloured metal, this problem looks worse than most, but it can often be solved with some specialized knowledge and the right chemicals to help. Overall, there are very few tap problems that an experienced professional can’t fix for you, and No1PHD ensures that this help is never more than a phone call away for Southampton residents.
Absolutely blown away by the service we received. Took all the stress out of losing our heating and hot water. Highly recommended!

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

Just because tap repair is usually possible doesn’t mean it’s always the best solution. Some taps will become too badly damaged for it to be worth your while to have them repaired. Taps also don’t last forever, and eventually, some will get too old to remain viable and need to be replaced. In these cases, you’ll need a professional to install a new set of taps for you, making sure they are properly connected to the rest of your plumbing system.
There are also reasons why even functional taps might need to be replaced. After you’ve had the same bathroom aesthetic for a while, it’s easy for the room to start looking dull – changing your tired old taps for new and exciting ones is a relatively easy way to bring some new life to the space. You might even be interested in switching to taps that are more clearly labelled or are easier to grasp and turn in order to accommodate a family member with a disability. Whatever your reasons for wanting this service might be, No1PHD is happy to offer tap installation services for all types of fixtures in Southampton homes and in commercial settings.

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.
