How To Check For Plumbing Leaks

Share our post

Australians understand that water conservation is important. We live on a very dry continent and water is precious. Did you know that families and businesses in cities like Melbourne waste water, and they don’t even realise?

Wasting water is not good for our environment, and you may receive an expensive water bill. This is one of the reasons you should check for plumbing leaks. Damage to your residential home or office because of leaking or burst water pipes, will also be very expensive.

Hiring a licensed and experienced plumber, to review and repair the damage, will save you money long-term. Maintenance on your pipes is cheaper than replacing carpet and walls after prolonged water damage.

Signs of a leaking pipe

Take a walk around your home or office and look for changes. A telltale sign of escaping water is damp patches in your garden. You may notice that a garden path constantly looks wet, or a patch of grass grows faster than the rest. Water may be leaking from your pipes into your soil.

Walls and floors that are of a different colour, can also indicate a water leak. Floorboards and timber walls may be warped, and on occasion you may even notice damp patches on them. If you see any signs like these, call a trusted plumber as soon as possible.

How to test your plumbing leak

Unfortunately, leaks in pipes cannot always be seen. Water could be flowing out of them and you don’t even notice. You can still check for a leak, by reading your water meter, not using your water for a few hours, and rereading your water meter a few hours later.

If your reading has changed during this time, even though you weren’t using any water, you may have a water leak. To check the exact location and severity of the plumbing leak, you will need to contact your local plumber in Melbourne.
