Water wastage in Australia is a big deal, not just for the environment, but also for your hip pocket.
With the cost of living ever increasing, every drop of water from a leaking tap, wonky faucet or damaged hot water heater is a drain on your finances. Fortunately, unlike most things in life, there is an easy solution, one your local Newman Plumbing team can provide for you.
Melbourne’s eastern suburbs get their water from the ash forests in the Yarra Ranges; however, like any of the country’s water supplies, it is under threat. As we head into the hotter months of the year, it is important to be conscientious of your water use. This means taking care of potential plumbing problems, as well as limiting your water use on gardens and during showers. Although clogged drains may not immediately come to mind as water wastage, they can be a major cause of pipe damage, which in turn causes hidden leaks.
If you have noticed your water bills climbing, but are certain you haven’t used any more water than usual, you may have a leaking pipe, hidden from view. Another type of hidden leak can come in the form of a damaged water heater. It pays to inspect your water heater regularly and ensure there are no leaks or signs of corrosion which could soon cause trouble.
Not only can a water heater waste a large amount of water very quickly, a leaking system can rapidly increase your electricity or gas bill. To top it off, leaking water heaters can be very dangerous, which is why it is important to hire professional plumbers, such as Newman Plumbing, to get the job done properly and safely.
