Understanding water leaks
Water leaks can happen inside or outside of your property. Most of the time leaks aren’t obvious until you actually see water leaking. This means is can be hard to determine whether your pipes are deteriorating of suffering from any problems or complications. Seeing as most pipes are visible and are installed under the floor, walls, or ceilings, it makes it hard to catch the problem at an early stage. If you notice in sudden changes in the flow of your water or heating, it’s always best to carry out a thorough check of your water system straight away. Likewise, if you notice any damp areas in the floor, wall, or ceiling, then again get a professional like us to come in and have a look. While water leaks aren’t easy to catch in the early days, by having someone come in and check it out as soon as you start to notice the slightest change in its flow, or the smallest damp area, this can help catch the leak before it spreads and causes further damages.
Water leaks can cause a whole range of complications such as flooding and dampness, which can then spread out to even more unwanted dilemmas such as electrical problems, damaged rooms and furniture, health hazards, and an unsafe environment. Making sure you understand the seriousness of water leaks and the damages they can bring is the key to keeping your home dry and leak free. Once you understand how important it is that you check for leaks every now and then, you’re more likely to give your home a thorough inspection every now and then which could help catch the problem in it’s earliest stages. Always remember that water leaks can bring serious consequences; calling an expert like 1-2-1 Plumbers as soon as you notice any sudden changes or leaks guarantees you’ll be able to save your property from any further damages that could cost you and your wallet a whole lot more than it would have originally if only you had picked up the phone and gave us a call.
How to detect water leaks
There are a few simple ways one can apply to detect whether their home is suffering from water leaks. The best to determine if you have a leak in your plumbing system is by checking your water meter to see if it’s functioning how it should be. In case you aren’t sure where you water meter is located, you can always call up your local water supplier or the billing department to get your meters location.
Once you have located your water meter you can then proceed to check for leaks. First, make sure no water is being used inside or outside of your house or property. Make sure any family members or workers know that you’ll be carrying out an inspection to prevent false readings or interference.
After making sure no water is being used check the leak indicator to see if it is moving. As you can imagine any movement from the leak dial alarms there is most likely a leak. Each brand for meters can vary, however most of the time you’ll be able to spot the leak indicator. Look out for a small triangular shaped dial, or a small silver wheel that rotates if there is water flow through the meter. As you know no water is being used, all dials should stay in place. Any movement indicates possible leakages as water is still passing by despite all water usages not being used inside and outside your property.
