What can I do about a leaking tap?

To save water and money if you live in a metered property, it is sensible to repair leaking taps as soon as possible.

This may involve replacing the tap's washer. There are many types of tap washers available, so you may want to take the old one with you to a reputable DIY or hardware store to find a replacement.

If in doubt, always consult an approved plumber – you can find one using WaterSafe, an independent register comprising thousands of qualified plumbers.
