Costly and wasteful water leaks
A water leak is perhaps the most wasteful—and costly—of all plumbing problems you can face. Aside from all that water freely flowing from leaking taps and toilets, bathroom fixtures, burst water pipes, and water heater tanks, a water leak also exposes your home to flooding and subsequent water damage. Far too many homes have had their floors, carpets and even cabinets and furniture ruined by flooding caused by a water leak.
At Ready Set Plumb, we have Master Plumbers in our roster who possess the skills, training, experience and equipment necessary to deal with all kinds of water leaks. Be it as simple as a leaking tap or as complicated as a burst pipe behind walls or underneath floors, our professional plumbers are more than up to the task, and should be able to solve your water leak problems in the quickest and most efficient manner possible.
Where could these leaks come from?
Leaks could come from anywhere, and two major sources are your taps and toilets. At a rate of one drop per second, you’re wasting 833 litres a month from a single tap. If you have five leaking taps at home, that’s a minimum of 4,000 litres a month. A toilet uses up to 11 litres of water per flush as part of its function.
Given the parts of a toilet, anything can contribute to leaks. For example, a broken cistern inlet valve is worse than a leaking tap and can cause not only your toilet to malfunction, but also waste more water.
Signs of a water leak
Thankfully, there are signs that should alert you to the fact that you have leaking taps and toilets somewhere. These signs include:
- continuous sound of water flowing even when all plumbing fixtures are turned off
- suspiciously high water bills
- wet, moist, spongy or discoloured floors or walls where nothing has been spilled
- foul odours from floors or walls where pipes run
If you notice any sign of a water leak, waste no time in contacting us at Ready Set Plumb.
