Outside Taps Fitted

Getting Outside Taps Fitted is something which you may be thinking about as the weather gets better and we start approaching the summer.

This is the time when people want their paddling pools filled, need to water their garden or wash the car. However, you don’t want to be trailing a hose into your kitchen every time you want to do work in the garden.

Getting an outside tap fitted does away with all the hassle of going in and out of you house with the hose.

At Glasgow Plumbing Services, we only ever use the best quality appliances and parts and provide an excellent service at an affordable price which is why we are Glasgow’s leading plumbers.

 

Outside Tap Mains Supply

We can install an outside tap which gives you the same mains supply and pressure which you get inside the house. This means that you can water the garden or wash the car with a high volume of water with the level of water pressure needed.

If your kitchen sink is located on the back wall is it is in many houses, then connecting your mains water supply to your outside tap is a quick and straight forward job.

How Long Does To Fit an Outside Tap

Most jobs to fit an outside tap can be done in 30-40 minutes which includes re-connecting the pipe work to supply the outside tap, fitting the tap itself and sealing it off.

If you have a more complicated job such as installing a water supply or taking a water supply from a different part of the house then this job will take longer but it can still be done.

 

Outside Tap Cold Water Supply

Most outside taps we fit are cold taps which is perfect for watering the garden and plants, power washing the patio, decking, stairs and walls. This is the same water which would supply the cold tap in your kitchen.

 

Outside Tap Hot Water Supply

A more recent trend we have seen is for people to have outside spa pools and even swimming pools installed. This of course requires a hot water supply. To provide a hot water outside tap, we would simply connect this tap to your hot water supply from the kitchen or nearest hot water source. We would, of course have to ensure that this complies with Outside Tap Regulations.

 

Outside Tap Regulations

When getting an outside tap fitted, it is imperative that your installation complies with outside tap regulations. Not only is this important to ensure that it meets the safety standards from a legal perspective but if your tap is not fitted correctly then you are exposing an outside water source back into your home. This can lead to an infected water supply for your drinking and washing dishes etc which can lead to disease and infection. You need to make sure that your outside tap installation is fitted by a professional plumber who knows the legal requirements for this. It is also important that your tap meets the British Standards.

Outside Tap Quality – Which Tap to Choose

The most important feature when choosing your outside tap is that it meets the British Standards. All of the taps we supply meet these necessary standards and you can choose any style from the basic brass outdoor taps, double garden taps for hot and cold water supply, garden taps you have already purchased from the likes of B&Q, Homebase or Wickes. You can have chrome garden taps or stainless steel garden taps. You can have them coming from your back wall or alternatively a free standing garden tap. If you have a specific style in mind, you can have an antique garden tap or even one of the more modern plastic Elgo outdoor taps. The choice, as they say is yours….

Keeping Your Outside Tap From Flooding the House

One of the main fears that people have when choosing to have an outside tap fitted is that it might damage their property by flooding the home.

Assuming that your tap meets the British Standards and it is fitted by a professional plumber who knows the safety regulations and requirements for a outside tap then this will not be an issue.

If you have a sub standard tap and it is not fitted properly then water can back-flow from your outside tap and into your property which is what you don’t want.

The other factor to look out for is outside taps freezing which can then cause problems inside the house.

Preventing Your Outside Tap from Freezing

So, you have had fun in your garden with your outside taps during the spring and summer and even the autumn if you are using your hot outside tap to heat your outside spa!!!!! Lovely… However, once the winter comes your outside tap needs to be protected from the frost and cold temperatures so that it doesn’t freeze over the winter and cause cracks in the pipes going back into your house and therefore flooding your property. Protecting your tap is very easy and can be done in less than a minute and also very inexpensively preventing major headaches if you don’t look after it.

Firstly, ensure that you have turned the outside tap off fully. Then protect the tap with an insulating cover. This can take many forms and be be purchased from a store for under £5 or home made from spare materials which you have at home. This simple act of insulating your taps will protect them and your home throughout the winter so that you can use them for many years to come.
