4 problems that can arise if leaking taps are not repaired

The dripping sound is not just annoying but it can also lead to a lot of problems.

A lot of water is wasted

A leaking tap left unattended can leak more than 9000 litres of water in a year. And if you leave a leaking toilet unfixed, it can leak over 60,000 litres of water in a year.

Australia is one of the driest continents in the world and receives less than 500 mm of rainfall annually. Water is undoubtedly a precious resource so do your bit and get a leaking tap fixed immediately by our plumbers.

Promotes mould and mildew growth

Water leaks can promote the growth of mould and mildew. Mould thrives in a wet environment and can start growing within 1-2 days of water exposure.

As you inhale the tiny mould spores, you can experience adverse health effects. Mould can lead to wheezing, asthma, skin, nose or throat irritation, joint pain, fatigue and depression. It is important to treat mould and mildew growth immediately as well as repairing any leaks.

Structural damage

Water can seep into the walls and cause the wood to rot. It can also chip off the paint and damage the foundation of your home. Left long enough, your house may get too damaged by water and become uninhabitable. Water leaks can also cause a pipe to burst suddenly. In that event, your home can be flooded with water in a matter of seconds and you won’t be able to claim the insurance on the repair costs. So, do not dismiss the problem, call a plumber to fix leaking taps now.

Money

Water leaks can increase your utility bills significantly. It can add almost $100-200 dollars on your bill depending on the extent of the damage, plus the repair costs and new fixtures.

How to detect water leaks?

Be a plumbing detective and observe the areas around your home. Do you notice stagnant water in your backyard even though it hasn’t been raining? Or has your water bill skyrocketed suddenly even though your usage is the same? These are the most obvious signs of water leaks but how else can you detect a hidden water leak?

You can detect a hidden water leak by following these simple steps:

  • Turn off the water supply from the mains
  • Note down the reading on your water meter
  • Wait for 15-20 minutes (or more if possible) and check the reading on the meter again
  • If the numbers change, you may have a water leak somewhere. In that case, contact your local plumber who will have the tools and expertise to carry out specialist leak detection to find leaking taps and pipes.
