Case Study: How a Balwyn Resident with a Water Leak Saved Bucket Loads by Hiring a Licensed PlumberFebruary 11, 2019 7:44 pm

Leaking taps and showers are one of the most common plumbing issues around. While they may not seem like a big problem, a water leak left unchecked can cause hundreds of litres of water wastage each year. That’s a lot of extra cash wasted on (already expensive) water bills.
The Importance of Fixing a Leaking Tap
A few months back, Newman Plumbing was called out to a Balwyn residence to investigate a leaking tap. The Balwyn resident had noticed their water bills were inexplicably high in the last period and thought that the leaking tap might be the culprit. They were right, but the situation was far more serious than they thought.
After investigating, our experienced plumber found that there was a complication with the pipes that was causing the tap to leak. The pipes had been damaged, causing the water pressure to fluctuate rapidly, and the tap to drip. The pipes were in such a state that they were about to flood the entire bathroom! Had the leak been left any longer, the resident would have had a far more serious issue on their hands.
Thankfully Newman Plumbing knew just what to do. By replacing a few sections of piping and giving the residents some helpful tips about maintaining their pipes, the problem was fixed, and the customer saved bucket loads while avoiding a real catastrophe.
How to Know if You Have Damaged Pipes?
While leaking taps don’t always indicate damaged pipes, it is one of the signs. In most cases, however, damaged pipes have other tell-tale signs that you should be aware of. This includes strange and unpleasant smells, murky or discoloured water and noticeable leaks.
If you experience a leaking tap or any of these other signs, do not try to make the repairs yourself. While fixing a tap, DIY may seem simple, but you could end up making the problem worse and costing yourself more money later down the track. Instead, always contact a fully licensed plumber. They can find a solution relatively quick and easy as leaking taps are a common plumbing issue.
