What is the cause of a leaking tap?

A common cause of a leaking tap is a worn-out washer or a washer that has been installed incorrectly. But there are other reasons that may cause a leaking tap:

  • O-ring – the O-ring is a small disc that holds the faucet handle in place. Dripping near the faucet
    handle may indicate that the O-ring needs replacing.
  • Aged tapware – In some instances, it is more beneficial to replace aged tapware over repairing. A
    leak due to aged tapware will most likely become a re-occurring issue.
  • Loose, worn out or corroded parts – seals, the valve seat, or other parts within the tapware
    become lose or worn out over time. Replacing these parts will stop a leaking tap.
  • Water pressure – if your water pressure is too high this may cause a leaking tap. A water flow
    restrictor can assist in this instance.
  • Mixer tap cartridge – a mixer tap uses a cartridge, not a washer. A leaking mixer tap cause is often
    a cartridge that requires replacement.
