Fixing a tap in Liskeard

Fixing a tap

This is the third job we have completed for this customer over the last year or so. Fixing a leaking kitchen tap which wouldn't turn off properly.

A lot of people are familiar with the idea of changing a tap washer. However, many modern taps do not have washers they use ceramic glands instead. Over time these wear out or get grit in them and won't urn off properly. In this house, we found that the hot side of the tap was to blame and we fitted a replacement gland which restored it to perfect working order at a fraction of the cost of a new tap.

The customer was very pleased and we are now looking at a further job for him.
