A leaking tap and leaks from pipes, plumbing fixtures and fittings are huge sources of water waste in my households and establishments.
A typical home can lose anywhere from 7,500 to 75,000 litres of water per year due to leaks. Plus, no one likes the sound of a leaking tap.
Bathroom, Shower, and Faucet Leaks
Although a drop here and there might not seem like much, a leaking tap can quickly add up to 3,750 litres of wasted water a year. They are usually quite simple and inexpensive to repair. The extent of the repair depends on the type of faucet. There are four main types: compression valve, ball types, cartridge types, and ceramic discs. Blue Streak Plumbing is accustomed to all types of taps and faucets. A leaking toilet can cause some irreparable damage to your floors beneath it. Prevent a huge problem by getting your toilet serviced as soon as you spot a leak.
Water Supply Leaks
Some leaks like dripping facets or water heaters are easily detectable. However, some leaks may go undetected for years because the source of the leak is not visible. Sometimes the leak occurs between the meter and the home, in the water supply line. These leaks are almost impossible to detect because the pipes are located at least a meter below the ground.
Often times, repairing a water leak is the responsibility of the homeowner, and a professional plumber should perform all repair work. Blue Streak plumbing has more than 10 years of experience repairing and leaking taps, showers, and pipes. We are happy to take on any job, big or small.
