Water leaks

Service and repairs

Is your tap, toilet or shower leaking?

Leaking water not only cost in terms of water usage, but may be doing long-term, and expensive, damage to your home.

Leaking water

As Australians we know that water is a precious resource. In fact, Australia is the driest populated continent in the world and, here in Melbourne, we are regularly placed on water restrictions. With even a single dripping tap accounting for a high proportion of your household’s daily water usage.

This is why it’s always best to do a quick audit that accounts for both obvious and hidden leaks.

Here’s some steps you can take to check for leaking water:

  1. Check your property for any visible water leaks from taps, toilets, showers, etc.
  2. Turn off all taps and appliances using water.
  3. Take a reading from your water meter, then wait for at least one hour (this includes flushing the loo)
  4. After at least 1 hour read the meter again. If the reading has changed then it is odds on you have leaking water.

Whether a leak is visible or hidden, the quicker you engage a licensed plumber to fix the problem, the more money you will save. Leaking water not only cost in terms of water usage, but may be doing long-term, and expensive, damage to your home.

Leaking showers

Leaking showers are one of the more common building faults, and potentially the most expensive.

Signs of a leaking shower include:

  • Bathroom has developed a musty smell
  • Tiles changing to a darker colour
  • Discolouration around the base of the shower
  • Loose or broken tiles/grout
  • Damp patches or damage becoming apparent on the other side of the wallk
