GCO Plumbing & Gas deals with some difficult tap fixtures in Caloundra
Judith and Iain from Caloundra contacted GCO Plumbing & Gas concerned about how difficult it was becoming for them to turn off their taps, constantly needing to turn taps off tighter and tighter to stop the dripping. Judith in particular was beginning to suffer from arthritis in her hands, making their old taps more difficult to operate. In addition to this, their grandkids also regularly left the taps not fully turned off due to the difficulty.
Greg from GCO Plumbing & Gas arrived swiftly to remedy their tap issue. He suggested replacing the older taps with new lever handle quarter turn taps. These taps use ceramic discs inside the tap spindles instead of the old tap washers. The ceramic disc, quarter-turn operation in conjunction with a lever handle makes that operation of turning the tap on and off much easier.
By replacing just the spindles and handles with these easy-turn tap installations it becomes a much cheaper option when compared to a full bathroom renovation with complete new taps and fixtures.
With the water saved from not having constantly dripping taps and the money saved from avoiding a renovation, Judith could not have been happier with the end result that GCO achieved with a simple fix.
