The benefits of a garden tap for your house

We are all looking forward to a summer outside, and many of us will be spending plenty of time in the garden. Whether you are using your outside space for hosting garden parties or simply spending time with your family, you can encounter multiple benefits from the installation of a garden tap – and some of these can even be seen all year round!

The benefits of a garden tap


Whether it’s your dusty bike or your muddy pet, some things are simply better off being cleaned outside. Installing a garden tap will allow you easy access to a water supply that you can utilise to hose down your car, bins or bikes, saving you numerous trips to your kitchen tap or trailing muck and muddy water through your home.

Maintaining your garden

Many of us will be keen to have our gardens looking in peak condition for any parties or BBQs we might have planned for the warmer months, but with less rainfall, keeping your garden looking fresh can often be a difficult task.
Long hours of sunlight can cause your plants to dry out and perish. A garden tap can allow you the opportunity to supply your flowers and grass with a regular dose of hydration. By connecting a hose to the tap itself, you can save on those repeated trips back and forth with a heavy watering can, granting you back the time to prepare for the arrival of your guests!

Building purposes

If you are having building work done on your property, it can be a headache to provide your builder with access to water from your kitchen. An external garden tap will allow them to utilise a constant flow of water throughout the entirety of their working day without the need to trail through your home, leaving residue of dust and debris that you will need to clean each day works are carried out.

Summer jobs

There are multiple reasons where you may find yourself requiring a garden tap during the summer months, most likely on more occasions than you would during any other time of year. Whether you are needing to connect a sprinkler to keep your grass from drying out in the sun or wish to top up the paddling pool for all the family to enjoy, these tasks can be made simple by installation of a garden tap.

Installing a garden tap

Installation is a fast and straightforward process; external taps can be fitted onto any wall that holds access to a water pipe in your home. The most suitable position could be outside your kitchen, most likely granting access to your rising main water pipe. If this isn’t possible, a professional will source another appropriate location. Regardless of the layout of your home, our installation services will ensure your garden tap is fitted in the perfect place for you.
