Question 1: I’ve been looking at my old garden taps and half them seem to be seized or leaking. What do you suggest?
Answer: Many people simply replace them with a cheap equivalent but we recommend the latest water-wise, quarter-turn taps.
Q2: Won’t this cost a fair bit?
A: Think first about the costs of wasting water. Leaks from garden taps can go unnoticed for months. A dripping tap can lose the equivalent of a bath filled with water every couple of days.
Q3: Don’t all garden taps have a lifespan, regardless of cost?
A: Cheap taps can wear out fairly quickly but we supply and fit the latest water-wise taps that have a ball-valve design. This means they never require a new washer and can last at least 10 years and often over 30. The ball valve is made from polymer, which means it doesn’t have the lime-calcification problems that affect traditional
garden taps. It also has a double seal that prevents leaks during long-term use. As well our taps have a one-piece brass body, providing greater strength and eliminating leaks through the main body.
Q4: Can you me talk through the price options please?
A: We can supply and install a quality quarter-turn, single-outlet garden tap for $146 and a double outlet for $153. These taps are also perfect for gardeners with arthritis.
