Regular leak checks
It is a common fact that older homes are more susceptible to leaks however, newer properties can also have leaks due to any plumbing problems during the building process. These can include piping and fixtures both internal and external. If these problems are not detected and resolved they can threaten the structural integrity of the home as well as the safety of its occupants.
Ensuring that you have regular leak detections carried out can dramatically reduce and potentially prevent future plumbing emergencies, expensive repairs and severe damage to your property.
Signs of a water leak
The following signs aren't specific to just water leaks and may be experienced for other reasons as well. If however, you are experiencing any of the following it is advised that you call your local professional, immediately:
- Contaminated water: If your water is discoloured or has chunks of dirt and grime this is a sign of a leak
- Water gushing: If you can see water spurting out from a pipe^ in your home or yard this is a very clear sign of a leak.
- No pressure: When losing water due to a leak the water pressure in the home can be halved and in some cases non-existent.
- No hot water: This can be due to a leak in the hot water system and is easy to find as the system is usually located next to the premise.
- Big water bills: If you notice a significant jump in your water bills this is commonly due to an unidentified water leak.
- Damp walls: There are a few reasons this might happen, a leaking pipe in the wall is the main culprit.
- Running water sound: If you can hear constant running of water but none of your taps is on this is a pretty good indicator that you have a leak
- Water meter: Ensure that all of your taps and water appliances are turned off then check if your water meter is ticking over. This is a sign that you have a leak.
