Perpetually leaking tap

One member had a tap “fixed” many times before 

One COTA NT member was spending more than she could afford to get the situation with her leaking tap resolved. A local handyman has been out several times to ‘fix’ the problem. 

The COTA NT member contacted Steve through the Home Maintenance Service and asked for his help. Steve inspected the tap himself and found, upon investigation, that the seat inside the tap was severely damaged and damaging the new tap washers installed by the handyman in a very short time. 

Steve installed a new tap with new tap washers. A relatively simple job for him and no more leaks for one very happy member.
