Signs of a leaking pipe:-

  • warped walls or ceiling panels
  • buckled cracked and stained flooring
  • a ‘spongy’ feeling in flooring

  • water meter readings are changing even though you’re not using water at that time

If any of the problems above sound like your home, it’s a good idea to give us a call so we can perform a leak detection service before it becomes an expensive issue. (If a leak is running silently under your fridge or inside the walls, you are facing possibly thousands ? even hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage).

Water damage to your home can cause:-

  • Water damage to carpets
  • Damage to furniture (mould, mildew and structural damage)
  • Damage to cabinets (delamination, glue breaking down)
  • Termites to be attracted to your home

The lesson? Keep your home dry. It’s your most important home maintenance job. If a leak is running silently under your fridge or inside the walls, you are facing possibly thousands ? even hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage.

Save water and money by fixing leaks or plumbing issues quickly. Call a licensed plumber.

Checking for leaks regularly and repairing them quickly is a simple way to save water and money. Monitor your water bill for unusually high use. Your bill and water meter are tools that can help you discover leaks. If you find a leak, turn off your water supply immediately and call a licensed plumber.

If you think you may have a leak or would like to check, please follow the steps below to read your water meter:

Don’t know how to find you water meter box? Watch this:

  • Turn off all taps and water using appliances in and around your premises.
  • Check your water meter. If the dials on your water meter are moving there could be a leak. If there is no movement on the dials, there may still be a slow leak.
  • To check further for leaks, do not use any water for at least 30 minutes, than take another reading. If the meter reading has changed, there may be a slow leak.
  • To fix the leak, check all fixtures and fittings and/or call a licensed plumber.

Water Leaks & Leaking pipesWater leaks are responsible for the waste of millions of liters of water every year. For example, a tap that drips once every second will waste up to 33 liters a day! Some easy steps you can take around the house to save you water and prevent leaks are:

  • Use a dishwasher. Dishwashers that have a 3 star rating or more can cut the amount of washing up water you use by half.
  • Make your taps water efficient. This will not cost you lots of money and will dramatically lessen your water bill.
  • Install a modern 3 star showerhead. Your shower will still work well but you will save approximately 10 liters of water every minute.
  • Take care not to plant large trees over pipes and mains that run through your property as their root growth may damage the pipes.
  • Turn taps off gently to help lengthen the life of washers.
  • Ensure all building and renovation work is undertaken by a licensed professional.

Call us today on 3889 9915 and benefit from the savings on your water bill and the possible damage to your home.
