Water Leak Repairs: We Fix It!

Time is of the essence when there’s water leaking in your property. DIY can be done for simple leaking issues such as replacing an old faucet. However, for other serious issues like a busted underground water pipe,  broken seals, clogged pipes, and corroded water pipe systems, you will need the services of plumbing specialists. Water leaks can be very destructive to your property and wallet if quick action is not done. 

Here are the major reasons why you need a professional plumber to repair your water leaks:

1. They can accurately identify the causes of the leaks as well as provide the appropriate measures. 

2. Professional plumbers use the latest equipment and have the necessary training and skills to solve your water leaks.

3. Plumbing companies do not just solely look at the actual problem but also have mindsets that are holistic and preventive. They will always educate you on how to prevent and avoid future plumbing problems.

4. Professional plumbing services have warranties and insurance. 

Possible Causes of Water Leaks in Melbourne

There will always be moments when those old plumbing systems will deteriorate and give you some problems. Water leaks can happen. Such situations will surely give you headaches that pain medications cannot solve. It is best that you have adequate knowledge and understand the common causes of water leaks.

1. Old Corroded Plumbing System

Corrosion is the main cause of water leaks, especially when you have pipes that are decades old. Signs of corrosion that you should look for are discolouration, warping, and flaking on your pipes.

2. Too Much Water Pressure

Excess pressure can cause intolerable strain to the water pipes. This is one reason why you should work with a professional plumber who can determine the correct amount of pressure that your pipes should have to prevent them from getting damaged.

3. Loose Connectors and Broken Seals

Connectors can become loose leading to water leaks. Constant shifting of appliances and structures connected to the water pipes can lead to the loosening of the connectors. In some cases, the seals that secure the connectors and the appliances break. This is due to the wearing out of their adhesive material.

4. Extreme Temperature Changes

Rapid temperature changes can lead to damage to the pipe’s structural integrity. Extreme heat can cause dilation or expansion while extreme cold can cause cracking of the pipes. This is just the basic explanation. It can get more complicated than the statements above if other factors like water pressure and flow are considered.

How to Detect Water Leaks in Your Melbourne Home

Water leak problems can be so costly in the long run if you don’t fix them immediately. Early detection of such leaks is very important. However, some water leaks can occur in obscure places on your property. They can be totally hidden from your sight that you would be relying on other indicators if there’s water leaking in your household.

Here are signs of water leaking that you should watch out for:

  • Your water bill is much higher than the usual
  • You observe the water meter running when all faucets are closed
  • You notice the sound of running water but can’t seem to identify where it’s coming from
  • Presence of damp floors and walls
  • Presence of unexplained stain or discolouration in the walls and floors
  • Presence of unexplained musty odour in your property

If you notice any or all of these signs, call the Local Plumber immediately. Water is a potent destroyer of property. It can also promote the growth of mildew and moulds that can be harmful to your health.

If this event occurs in a commercial space, your business could suffer severely.
