If your current tap isn’t working properly, or if you’re having problems with it, you should consider getting a replacement or toilet tap repairs. It’s not just about the look of a bathroom. The tap may have stopped operating correctly, resulting in water waste, and you need toilet tap repairs. You may be right in the thick of remodelling your bathroom and plan to switch out all the older fittings.
Why Replace Your Taps?
The reality is that there are likely only two times when you’ll want to replace your bathroom taps: when they stop working or when you want to enhance the bathroom’s design. Here is a closer look at them:
- Updating Your Bathroom’s Appearance- Improving the look of your bathroom is as simple as installing new tapware during a renovation project. The taps will be utilised often throughout the day and will be in plain view whenever you wash your hands. Your bathroom will look better with excellent taps.
- You Have Faulty Taps – If your sink tap is obviously broken, you’ll need to replace it. An intermittent but persistent flow from the tap might be the sole symptom you notice. Maybe you’re on the opposite end of the house from this sink, and the constant dripping doesn’t disturb you. However, water waste is money waste, and its best to fix the tap on time.

Steps To Replace Your Bathroom Taps
These are the general steps to follow during tap replacement:
Step 1: Turn Off The Tap’s Water Supply
To stop water flow, turn off the main valve, which is often found in the front of a house. When the water is turned off at the mains, you should run all faucets in your home to empty the pipes.
Step 2: Undo The Tap’s Indicator Cap
Unscrew the indicator cap from the top of the tap to begin. You’ll need a screwdriver / allen key to remove a screw from under the cap of some taps. Take off the top, then unscrew its cover plate by pulling out the handle.
Step 3: Remove The Spindle
The spindle needs to be taken out now. A helpful hint for removing the spindle is to have the faucet in the open position.
Step 4: Put The New Spindle In
Simply go backward from here. You should install the replacement spindle, cover plate, handle, and indication cap. If you follow these steps, there will be no delay in installing your new faucets.
STEP 5: Turn The Water On
To flush the pipes, turn on the water supply at the main supply and let it run for one full minute. And with that, your bathroom will seem immediately updated thanks to your new faucets.
Changing taps can be a DIY project, and you can legally do it. However, it may be worth it (in terms of time and cost) to hire a plumbers Sydney if you are not very confident or sure about handling the task yourself.
