While leaks are unfortunately a pretty common plumbing issue, they’re still a major hassle to deal with. There are a few things you can keep an eye on to avoid the situation but if those fail or it’s too late, we are your local Sydney plumbing team here to help with any of your plumbing needs.
The first thing you should know is that if you already have a leak in your home there isn’t anything you can do to properly repair it yourself. In saying this, there are a few steps you should take as soon as you notice the leak. This includes putting some sort of bucket under the leak & soaking up any water that has already dripped out. This will help long-term to avoid mould growth or any dampness. The next thing you need to do is book in for one of our local plumbing experts to come and repair the leak for you!
Now, things you should know to help you avoid a leak happening in the future. One of the main things that cause leaks is simply having old, weak pipes. If you know that your pipes haven’t been upgraded in many years, this could be the perfect time! It’s important to have your pipes inspected for leaks regularly (it’s recommended that you have your pipes inspected at least once per year to avoid potential leaks). There are also a few other things that can be done to avoid leaks including installing a pressure gauge to make sure your water pressure doesn’t get so high that it will slowly cause a leak.
