How to Fix a Leaky Tap

Beside irritation, it’s also can cause you higher water bills if your tap got leaky. You don’t need to hire a plumber to fix this, because you can fix yourself easily. Just get the new gasket and necessary tolls for the jobs. Here’s some tips how to and what tools you need.

What you need is 

1. a monkey wrench
2. a screwdriver
3. a replacement gasket

What you need to do is, before getting started you need to turn of the water at the mains. And then use your screwdriver and gently remove the top protective covering to unscrew the faucet.

After you took out the faucets, remove the mechanism with the wrench so you will find the gasket inside. Replace the gasket with new one, and then use the wrench to tighten it. Put everything back in place. Remember the position they were in before and make sure you reattach them in that same position. Turn back on the water and test to see if the faucet works without leaking. If it leaks, check the connection points you just made are tight enough.

That is it !!!
