Water leak repairs


Causes of Water Leaks

Water leaks are often the result of another issue, such as:

  • Corrosion, electrolysis and rusted water pipes  
  •  Water heater corrosion
  • Tree roots that force pipes out of alignment  
  • Clogged toilets and drains
  • Excessive stress put on plumbing pipes, flexible connectors, joints, hot water units, mixer taps and appliances caused by high water pressure
  • Water hammer that causes the pipe joints and flexible connectors to break


Signs of a Water Leak

Water leaks can seriously damage the structural integrity of your building if they’re not dealt with as quickly as possible. Thankfully, there are signs that you can look out for to help you detect a water leak early.

Fungus, Mould and Mildew

Unfortunately, this is often a sign that you have had a water leak for some time. Fungus, mould and mildew can affect your health, such as:

  • Asthma
  • Respiratory issues
  • Increased allergies
Unexpectedly High Water Bills

Have you noticed the cost of your water bills rising unexpectedly high? This could potentially be an indication of a water leak.

Property Damage

Look out for changes/damage to your Home or Office’s pathways, driveways, gardens as this can be a sign that the water mains are leaking. Leaking water mains can result in land subsidence causing the earth to move, disrupting whatever is built on top of the soil.

Increased Presence of Bugs, Insects and Mites

Insects, mosquitoes, bugs and mites thrive in damp environments, therefore an increased presence could be a sign that there is a water leak present on your property. 

What to do if You Suspect a Water Leak

If you suspect a water leak, take action immediately to prevent further damage to your property. In the case of a water leak:

  • Check no water is being used anywhere outside or inside the building and locate the building’s water meter
  • Check the water meter’s leak indicator to see if it’s moving
  • Take a water meter reading and then 1-2 hours later repeat the action to see if any water was used (do not use water during this period)
  • Call a plumbing professional to conduct water leak detection services and solve the leak ASAP
