We can plumb in the pipes and ensure that your outdoor tap works perfectly.

Benefits of Outside Tap Installation
If you want a new outside tap built for your garden, you are in the right place! With the recent sunshine that motivates us to engage in more summer activities, many things can be done if you have an outside tap installed. There are so many things for which an external tap is useful, but only a few in this article can be listed! Check out our shortlist of things you can do with an outside tap.
- Cleaning your car with a hose attachment
- Washing pets, scooters, bikes and cleaning bins and other grimy and mucky items
- Watering flowers multiple times over without having to refill your watering can
- Providing builders with water without running a line from the tap in the kitchen. This is particularly useful during construction and repair work in your home
There are so many different uses for an outside tap. It’s just a better way rather than having to attach a hose to the kitchen tap every time you need water in the garden, which eventually sprays water everywhere.
Regulations for Outdoor Tap Installation
Building regulations require an outdoor tap to be fitted with a check valve. This valve ensures that water can flow from the pipeline in only one direction. Water can get contaminated by dirt, mud or grain, especially in a garden or in the street; the check valve prevents contaminants from entering the water supply.
At Hampshire Plumbing, we can install an external tap and make sure it meets the British Standards and plumbing regulations.
Our plumbers are fully qualified to install outside taps in your property. We have a variety of outside taps available including wall mounted, freestanding and even ones with hot water.
Hampshire plumbers are fully aware and respectful of the regulations for the installation of external taps in the UK. We would like you to have peace of mind when we offer our services to you so we ensure that our plumbers understand the job from start to finish.
Outside taps can be connected to any wall in your home that has access to a water line. The most popular location for an external tap is usually outside the window of the kitchen because the sink is behind the wall and provides access to the mains. If this isn’t how your home is constructed, our plumbers can find other ways of finishing the task.
Hampshire Plumbing will provide you with an approved tap for fitting and installation, but if you want to purchase or install a tap yourself then you have to ensure that it meets British Standard requirements. British specifications allow test valves to be placed on any outdoor tap. It’s the control valve which ensures that the water can flow from the mains in only one direction.
