When you have no water in your home, it can become very frustrating very quickly. While there are a number of reasons your water might stop flowing, a blocked tap could be the simplest explanation.
Why taps block
Taps can block for many reasons, and can occur unexpectedly. The tap may purely be blocked due to a faulty valve somewhere between your property’s edge and your taps, which can quite often be very hard to locate. From inside your hot water system to the valves right inside your taps, blockages can occur anywhere there are moving parts.
A blocked tap can also be caused from excess build up in your pipes from non-filtered water. If you do have water filters installed, it could mean the filters need replacing. If you are only having problems with just one particular tap, or if water pressure gradually weakened until the water flow turned to a drip, then it could be an air lock in your pipes causing the problem.
