Benefits of Installing an Outdoor Tap

Adding an outdoor tap to your home can significantly enhance the convenience of various outdoor activities. Whether it’s washing the car or cleaning the patio, having easy access to running water in the garden can be a game-changer. If you have an outdoor tap, you won’t have to go back and forth to the house to water your plants in the spring. Also, if you’re lucky enough to have an outdoor hot tub or a kiddie pool, connecting a hose to your hot water tap will make it easier to fill them.

What Our Clients Say

I booked an annual boiler service from MML last week. I couldn’t have been more impressed with Levi’s professionalism and attention to detail. Levi was very polite and took the time to answer all of my questions, explaining every step of the process along the way. He was very thorough in his work and even went above and beyond to ensure that everything was in top working order before he left. I highly recommend Levi to anyone in need of plumbing services – his expertise and customer service truly exceeded my expectations. Thank you Levi for a job well done!

Levi came to our rescue very quickly to change an isolator tap for the dishwasher when we needed to install a new one. He brought the part with him and although the job seemed more time-consuming and complicated than we initially thought, he was very efficient and sorted out the issue promptly. A bonus is that he is a very friendly and kind person too and didn’t mind our dog trying to get involved in the job! Thanks again MML Plumbing for a great service!

Mike (plumber) and Szilvia (admin) were incredibly responsive and helpful when a simple tap replacement became a problem due to the lack of a stop valve in the street and in our house conversion. Mike made 4 visits to resolve the issue
I would always use MML Plumbing and a happy to recommend them

We are a small charity and used MML to have a gas combi-boiler and a totally new heating system fitted. They were brilliant from the beginning. Warm, friendly, helpful and flexible. The engineers have been on time, always arrive when they say they will, and are clear about their availability. They answered my questions and were helpful in making some difficult decisions, by explaining clearly the implications. All this was really good value for money. They were perfect for us.

Very good – easy to book over email, was given a time the same week. The plumber arrived bang on time and was communicative, knowledgeable and friendly. The job was done quickly and to a high standard. Very pleased and will use it again.

We used MML plumbing twice so far, and always received great service and advice from their engineer. Szilvia (the Operation Manager) is wonderfully responsive and squeezed us into the calendar at very short notice when our boiler started acting up. Thank you!

Fantastic service! Our boiler stopped working unexpectedly. MML Plumbing came quickly, diagnosed the problem and resolved it immediately to make sure we weren’t without radiators for too long. Very impressed with the expertise, friendliness and communication. They also gave us tips for maintenance. Highly recommended!

I called MML Plumbing to investigate a boiler fault and they were very helpful and quick to respond. The engineer, Mike, arrived earlier than expected and was friendly and professional. He thoroughly explored the problem(s) and fixed what he could. Unfortunately, it is a problem that the manufacturer will have to deal with (due to the availability of parts). Mike was very honest about this and, here is the amazing part, he did not charge me today as he couldn’t fully resolve the issue! Am so impressed and would not hesitate to call this family business out again.

WOW…. what fantastic service… Levy arrived at the time I was given. He was totally professional, in capping my gas pipe. Unfortunately, he had to remove it all, as the previous engineer left it short! in order for an Induction hob to be fitted. He went above and beyond what he came to do. He also checked my boiler as he was not happy about the pressure.. would definitely use MML again.. and I can highly recommend them.

Did not have a ‘regular’ plumber in north London, so took a punt and mailed a few from Google search. MML came back immediately, great communication, a good price for the work (which was not a simple job) and the engineer was excellent – friendly, professional and super hard working. Three long days for what was hoped to be a two-day job, no moaning when it became more complicated (due to the old system being problematic), definitely recommend it.

MML Plumbing. DON’T HESITATE TO BOOK!
They have been absolutely fantastic!..fast responded to my initial, panicked, call!
Levy is professional, quick to source what’s gone wrong and fix it,..also to explain exactly the reasons as to why etc.
We are moving house and certainly didn’t need this worry on top of everything else.MML promptly removed this issue.! We needed to replace a radiator and in a short space of time, Levy not only replaced the radiator but found the right size and style etc; and brought it to us, installed it and had everything sorted in no time!.. he also dismantled a water filter system, we are taking with us, no fuss.. and VERY reasonably priced!.. I would highly recommend their service!..it’s great to know you have a reliable, professional, friendly plumbing team on your doorstep! Only wish we could take them with us!! Thank you, Levy and team!..Kerry, Keith & Hendrix.

We are very happy with the boiler installation that the gas engineers from MML plumbing did.

The engineers are very polite and hard workers. The office is easy to communicate with.

All I can say is they are very professional.

Amazing service.
MML went above and beyond from the moment of my first enquiry until after the installation of my boiler.
Professional.Great workmanship.
I am now having them back to do other work for me and have recommended it to friends.

Great experience with MML from start to finish! Clear, efficient communication, transparent and reasonable pricing. Our plumber was punctual, professional, kept us informed of our options, and was extremely hardworking. He was even kind enough to manage the situation with our neighbours who were quite annoyed that we had to shut the water off urgently. Our plumber found and repaired a leak in a concrete wall (more complex than expected but it didn’t deter him), fit a new kitchen tap, and even stayed beyond the allotted time to look at our boiler and find a problem with our radiators that we hadn’t noticed. We were really impressed by the efficiency, dedication and level of service. We will recommend MML to others and use them again in the future. PS: At the time of writing, their overall Trustpilot score is only 4/5 whereas all customer reviews have given a 5-star rating. I found this strange when doing research myself and seeing everyone had given them a 5. So remember they’re truly a 5-star plumber, not a 4-star ones!

Prompt and professional, completed boiler service and gave recommendations

Excellent service, really friendly staff and an efficient service completed with care.

Why it is important to fix a leaking tap immediately?

A leaking tap can higher your bill by 1 m3/ month.

A leaking toilet is even worst, it can cause a +2 m3 of extra usage per month.

A few drops of cold water from a leaky tap may not seem like a big deal, but the consequences can be significant. A leaking tap can waste water and lead to a higher water bill. It can cause a significant increase in water usage, leading to negative water pressure and additional costs.

The best way to avoid big plumbing bills and costly repairs is to recognize the signs of common issues, such as a leak as soon as possible. By acting quickly and seeking professional help, you can prevent further damage and expenses. At MML Plumbing, we understand the urgency of any issues and prioritize quick and efficient service for leaky plumbing outlets in gardens, kitchens, or bathrooms.

Save on Water Bills and Ensure Safety

You might think a few water drops from a leaky tap aren’t a big deal, but they can actually lead to significant increases in your water bill. Let’s understand this better with a simple example:

Imagine your tap is dripping once every second. That small drip amounts to 4 litres of water wasted daily. Now, if the tap is fully leaking, it can waste up to 90 litres of water every day, costing you over £100 extra per year. The same goes for leaking outside taps. That’s why it’s crucial to address plumbing issues like dripping or leaking outside taps, promptly.

Beyond the financial impact, a leaky tap can also cause property damage and pose health risks. Leaks can occur not only on the outside wall but also underneath the pipes. This constant water exposure can lead to wood softening and rotting, creating potential structural problems. Moreover, excess moisture from leaks can trigger the growth of harmful mould and mildew, even in hidden areas like under the sink. These moulds pose serious health threats to you and your family. Therefore, it’s essential to fix faulty taps as soon as possible to ensure safety and avoid health hazards.
