Understanding How Your Tap Works

Even if you’re not a plumber, it’s helpful to know how your tap produces water so you can take care of minor problems that might come up. Watch this video for an understanding of how your tap works.

A tap is a pretty easy appliance to understand, and it uses basic mechanics and physics to produce water on the spot. The tap is made up of the handle and the pillar through which the water flows. Water is always being pushed through the faucet, but a closed tap uses a washer to keep it contained. When you open the tap, you remove the washer from its seat.
