Water Leak Repair Sydney: How to Prevent Costly Damages

by superadmin on August 6, 2017 in Uncategorized

Many Sydney homeowners ask for a water leak repair service to prevent costly damages. After all, a typical home might waste up to 60,000 litres of water in a year due to leaks. In addition, the pipes might completely break open if the issue is not addressed quickly.

But first, how do you know if there’s a leak? It’s hard to figure out because the pipes are hidden beneath the walls, floors and the ground. And even if there’s indeed a leak, it requires expertise to fix it.

How to know if there’s a pipe leak?

The simplest way is to shut off all the faucets and appliances that use water. Then you monitor the water metre if it’s moving (or has moved after a few hours). If the water metre registered a change, it means there’s a leak.

The next step is to pinpoint where the leak is. Often, the leaks are around kitchen sinks, shower drains and toilets. The water leaks can also be in the water heater system (this results to higher electricity and water bills).

As mentioned earlier, it’s hard to figure out the location of the leak. It’s especially the case with small leaks. They don’t manifest clear signs yet.

What to do?

If you suspect there’s a water leak somewhere in your home, it’s time to call a professional to locate the issue and fix it immediately.

Professional plumbers can accurately detect the leaks no matter how small. They use specialised tools to do the job. They also have undergone years of training and handled hundreds (or even thousands) of water leak repairs.

Professional plumbers can also prevent costly repairs and replacements. After just a few weeks or months, a minor leak might turn into a major one. It can lead to the bursting of the pipe. This will then need a costly replacement.
