Frequent questions and answers

Yes, outside taps can be fitted anywhere. You have to run a water supply pipe to the new tap location, which can be difficult, but almost always possible. 

I will work out how to fit an outside tap in any location you like and give you a fixed price quote.

For example, if you wanted to have a tap fitted in your garden or an outbuilding away from the house, then you would have to run a water pipe from your house to the newly fitted outdoor tap, and the pipe will need to be well insulated to help stop it from freezing in the winter.

Housewarm charges £90 for one garden tap, or £150 for two fitted at the same time with no VAT to pay.

A garden tap installation by Housewarm is usually completed in less then an hour, but it could take longer if there’s lots of pipework needed to reach the water supply.

An outdoor tap not working could be for many reasons. The first thing you need to do is make sure you are getting water to the tap by checking the isolating valve is open on the water supply pipe. 

Three possibilities: It be the iso valve is faulty, the check valve is blocked, or there could be a kink in a flexible hose on the water supply.

Assuming there’s no obvious signs of water, you can tell if you have a leak by your water bill if you are on a meter, you will see a spike in the bill amount.

You can check if you have a water leak by making sure no water is being used in the property, then record the water meter readings, then go back an hour later and see if the number has increased at all, if it has then you have a leak.

You could have a leak on a pipe under the floor, or, you could potentially have the old leaky water supply pipe from the street, connected to the new water main supply.
