Tap Repair & Installation in Calgary

Back to Services

Got a water tap that has a mind of its own?

A dripping or leaking tap can waste many litres of water every month, causing water damage and increasing your water bill. A leaking tap can also indicate larger plumbing issues and should be examined by a professional plumber.

Repairing or replacing a malfunctioning tap as soon as you notice a problem can prevent costly problems down the road. Contact Son-Rise Plumbing & Gasfitting today to fix your faulty faucet. We’re experts at everything plumbing.

Tap repair

Taps have many little parts that can malfunction and cause leaks. While making these repairs yourself can be tempting, some fixes require special tools, special knowledge, and a special touch to get right.

A professional plumber can diagnose:

  • Worn-out washers: Washers control how much water is released through the faucet. They can wear out after extended use, which can cause leaks.
  • Aging pipes: Old, outdated pipes can cause all sorts of plumbing problems, including drips and leaks.
  • Faulty valves: Water valves ensure water flows in one direction and can wear out from repeated use.
  • Loose spouts: A loose spout can cause leaks. Tightening a loose spout is an easy DIY fix, but if it doesn’t stop the leak, there may be a more serious problem. A plumber can easily diagnose the issue.

A Son-Rise plumber can save you time and money by accurately diagnosing the problem, fixing it right the first time around, and guaranteeing their work.

Tap installation

Sometimes a faulty tap is beyond repair and will need to be replaced. Here are some signs you may need a new tap:

  • Corrosion: Corrosion on your fixture may indicate that it’s too worn out to be fixed and will need to be replaced. It’s also unsightly and can be a health hazard.
  • Low water pressure: A change in water pressure can indicate serious issues with your tap or pipes, including limescale and mineral buildup or corrosion that causes erosion. Replacing your tap can mitigate larger issues.
  • Stiff handles: As taps age, they can become discoloured or corroded and develop cracks that cause leaking. These issues can lead to stiff handles that are difficult to turn, meaning you may need to replace your tap.
  • Noisy faucet: Whistling, squealing, or clanking can indicate faulty cartridge, cracked faucets, or pipe blockages. Your plumber can diagnose the exact problem, including an unfixable tap that needs to be replaced.
  • Constant drips: If your tap keeps leaking even after you’ve replaced the cartridge, gotten a new valve, or tightened the spout, it may be beyond repair and needs to be replaced.

While installing a tap may seem like a quick and easy task that you can do yourself, it can actually be quite tricky. A Son-Rise plumber has the knowledge and skills to quickly and correctly install bathroom renovations, kitchen renovations, and outdoor taps, saving you time, money, and headaches.
