Over the years, it can become harder to turn on or off older taps. This can caused by a worn or scaled up valve . The best way to prevent this from happen is to try to close a tap as gently as possible; never use force to ‘fully’ close it.
Luckily, fixing a leaking tap is easy so you it should cost you a fortune. However, do not try to fix the tap yourself as modern valves have slightly different arrangement and if you are not an expert, it is easy to order the wrong parts.
A few things can be happening here. Your water main could be too small and cannot cope if extra (hot) water is added. Sediment could also have built up at the opening of valve of your hot water system. Or there could be corrosion, which is common as the water temperature fluctuates, causing your pipes to corrode. As this problem could have multiple causes, we recommended to give us a call to assessment the situation and discuss a plan that best suits your home and your water demands. [/dropcap]
