Yes, in some states of Australia it is illegal to fix your own taps and you must call a licensed plumber to do the work. Whilst at first glance this may seem like a ridiculous law it's actually there to protect us from contamination and self-harm. Fixing a "simple" tap leak can turn into a costly nightmare and has for many of our unsuspecting customers. We've had to come in after many do-it-yourself'ers who have attempted to re-seat their own taps which is an important part of changing washer and valves to get a water tight seal. The problem is this "simple" task takes re-seating hundreds of taps to master and done incorrectly can easily cost you a whole new tap set, hours of time and frustration trying to fix it before giving up and calling someone who knows what they're doing. There are plenty of do-it-yourself guides out there unfortunately they don't warn people this so called "simple" job actually requires some experience not to mention the danger of slicing your hand open using the re-seating tool. Our advice to save your hip pocket, time and a headache is to simply pick up the phone and call the professionals on.
