Benefits Of An Outside Tap
If you’re looking to have a new outside tap fitted for your garden, then you’ve come to the right place! With the recent sunshine setting us in the mood for more Summery activities, we think about the things that can be achieved by having an outside tap on your home. Whether it’s watering the flowers or washing the car, there are so many things that can be done with an outside tap that just isn’t possible without it!
There are so many things that an outside tap is useful for but we can only mention a few in this article! Take a look at our short list below of some things we couldn’t do without!
- Washing the car with a power hose attachment
- Washing down pets after a muddy walk
- Watering the flowers without having to refill a watering can several times over
- Cleaning bins & other grime from things you don’t want to clean in the house
- Cleaning bikes, scooters & other mucky items
- Giving builders access to water without having to run a line straight from the kitchen tap (This is useful for any building work that is going on for your home)
- Filling the paddling pool in the Summer (Limited use we know)
These are only a few to name! There are so many different uses that you may have for an outside tap. We’ve found that it’s just a nice option to have rather than having to scramble a DIY fitting on the kitchen tap which ends up spraying water everywhere.

Where can I fit an outside tap?:
Outside taps can be fitted to any wall that has access to a water line in your home. The most common place for an outside tap is usually outside of the kitchen window since the sink is placed behind the wall, giving access to the rising main. This gives you easy access to the tap as well as a nice high-pressure since it’s coming from the mains. If this isn’t the way your home is arranged then our plumbers can figure out other options to move forward.
Why use M Plumbing?
M Plumbing is able to provide an outside tap for the fitting & installation, but if you decide to purchase a tap yourself or already have one then you need to ensure that it complies with British Standard regulations. British Standards state that any outdoor tap must have check valves installed. It’s the check valve that ensures that water can only flow one way which is from the mains. This is to avoid any contaminated water getting back into the main water supply, possibly tainting the rest of the water supply. Since the outside tap is close to the garden, dirt & other contaminants are able to get into hoses/piping which could return into the mains without a check valve.
