Did you know that a 0.5mm leak could cause a loss of 19.8 litres of water per hour? That’s 475 litres a day! And a bigger leak of 7mm would lead to losing 56,592 litres a day. These tremendous figures are unnecessary and expensive. At Elite Plumbing, we offer precise and fast leak detection services that will save you money and water!
Why is leak detection important?
Leaks are not only costly, but they can be dangerous. Quickly fixing a leak is highly recommended to keep people safe and avoid significant damage. If you delay fixing a leak, the following damages could occur.
- Structural damage. Leaking water can damage timber and the structure of your home or business. Water damage is expensive to fix and can be avoided with leak detection.
- Ceiling stains. If water leaks onto your ceiling, this can cause watermarks and damp patches. If this occurs, removal or replacement may be required.
- Floor stains and damage. If water leaks on your carpets or floors, it may cause serious damage. Replacing floors is time-consuming and expensive.
- Electrical problems. Water + electricity = disaster! Avoid risking your safety and the condition of your property and avoid electrical problems caused by water leaks.
What causes water leaks?
Water leaks can occur in your home or business without any obvious or immediate signs. This is why expert leak detection is so important. Leaks can be caused by:
- Excess pressure in pipes.
- Deteriorating pipe joints.
- Building faults.
- Broken seals.
- Tree root damage.
- Temperature changes in pipes.
