What Are The Common Leaks You May Encounter?
All pipes are prone to leaks, irrespective of their material or price. While some leaking pipes may be more resistant to damage and bursts, others may be susceptible to wear and tear, which causes leaks. Plumbing leaks can be caused if you have accidentally nicked the pipes during any installation or fitting or if they have become old.
In any case, it’s always helpful to know about common leaks so that you can keep an eye on them. These include:
- Leaks around drains, showers and bathtubs
- A leaking hot water tank
- Leaking faucets
- Leaking toilet bowl
- Leaking stormwater drain
Have You Noticed Anything Strange?
Leaks may not always be apparent as leaking water from pipes or faucets. Sometimes, you may have to watch out for signs like:
- Damp spots on the floor or wall
- A gurgling sound from the plumbing pipes
- A sudden increase in your water bill
- Change in water pressure
If you spot any such sign, give us a call immediately to get the plumbing system inspected by our plumbers.
