Following is a detailed breakdown of a Leaking Pipe:
–> Why do we have leaking pipes?
Drip….Drip….Drip……Drip……Drip is NOT something you want to listen too!! Life is too busy to deal with unnecessary leaking pipes dripping!
You wake up ready to go off to work only to find a puddle of water….you just don’t have time to deal with this scenario. What a nightmare! But you can’t leave it, so what can you do?….
Rather often older style homes will incur leaky pipes due to wear and tear; pipes and hot water tanks are often needed to be upgraded.
Corrosion of pipes is another possibility for leaks. Corrosion occurs when water temperature and oxygen are at fault, the PH water is incorrect, or the pressure from water builds up in the pipe.
–> What can we do?
If you are renting call your landlord first!
Firstly; inspect where the leak is coming from. If it is a leak from the hot water tank -check the pressure relief valve on the hot water tank, if you can’t get it off or- listen for hissing so you are able to listen out for a leak.
With dealing with a toilet leak pop the top off the toilet tank and assess whether or not you are able to remedy the leak.
If pipes are corroded then it may possibly be a good idea to have that pipe entirely repaired by Plumbers In Adelaide or if there is more than one leaking pipe or if it’s a massive leak then it might be wise to consider re-plumbing the property throughout.
–> Repairs and Maintenance:
Remember: When fixing a leak turn the water mains off first…
It is my recommendation you call 24/7 Plumbers In Adelaide when you are unsure of how to fix the problem properly yourself. Or if are dealing with hot water then it would be safer to call the experts with coverage charges included with all facilities move in move out cleaning al BUT the old plumbing tape is super handy to fix a simple leaky pipe when you are in a hurry- Be sure to wipe away any excess water first.
