There's a little puddle of water down there near 
the toilet but you can't blame me for it, i didn't do it… It's the tap that's leaking, the tap that 
feeds the toilet has worn out and it's dripping   now and it's leaving a little puddle of water, it's 
the same kind of tap that you'd find for your sink,  for your vanities, for your dishwasher, and all 
the toilets around the house, they're easy to   fix or easy to replace I should say there's 
only a couple of steps that we need to do to   get that changed out, so let's get it done! G'day, I'm Kent. First off; turn the tap off to the toilet, second job… second job!? second, second; flush 
the toilet so that the cistern is empty. Third; turn the main water supply off to your house, 
you may have to look up how to do this in your country, turn the main supply of water off to your 
house because we're going to be taking that tap off the wall and we don't want a water feature 
in the bathroom!   one thing you can do before you replace your tap is just have a feel around 
your hose and where it connects to the toilet,   and just make sure that all of that is dry, okay 
that's not leaking, the water is definitely coming   from that tap body.

Disconnect the hose that's 
coming from the tap heading to the toilet   there'll be a little bit of residual water here 
so just have a towel down on the floor to catch it   next up remove the tap from 
where it joins to the wall remove all that old teflon thread seal tap you 
don't want that getting stuck in the tap mechanism   I really recommend anytime you replace a tap 
is to use some of this teflon thread seal tape,   or plumber's tape, or ptfe tape, what we'll do 
is we'll wrap it around clockwise about 5-10 times is good, it really doesn't 
matter how much of the stuff you put on like you can't put on too much and before we 
put on our replacement tap i'm going to put some   thread seal tape on here if you're not sure which 
size tap you need to buy, when you take your first   tap off, run down to the hardware store with that 
tap and you can match it up with a replacement one.   Hey here's a thought, if you live in a house 
and your house has got plumbing, every now   and then you'll find you need to do little 
maintenance jobs like this one changing out a tap   now if this is not the worst video you've ever 
watched, click the 'Subscribe' button, come and join   me at Inspire DIY, I've got lots of good plumbing 
videos that can help you out with your projects.   So make sure your new tap is off, we're heading 
outside now to turn the mains water back on   near where that toilet was 
I've just opened up one of the   basin cold water taps, and that's just to ease a 
bit of pressure so when we turn this mains water   back on if there is a fault with the toilet tap 
or you've not connected it properly this is going   to ease a lot of your trouble.

Cool, so we've got 
our mains water back on now we can test the tap,   doesn't look like we've got any leaks around 
either of these connections so that's really good   there was a few little air bubbles 
in the line and that can be expected   So that's all done that's a quick and… once 
your water's turned back on just check around   underneath the tap there that you've not got any leaks 
now that we've been messing with the plumbing   flush your toilet a couple of times check again 
and then you should be good to go! that little costs $10 or $12 from the hardware 
store.

that, and the teflon thread sealed tape 2  really good items! I'll pop them in the description below if you need to check them out,  If you like this video, If you found it helpful, 
give it a thumbs up I'll see you in the next video..
