Common Questions About Leaks
Of course. A leaking pipe means that water is flowing inside your home. With time it will cause serious water damage and weaken structural elements. If you do think that you have a leaking pipe somewhere but can’t spot it, call a plumber to be sure. Reed Plumbing & Drainage Solutions provide a 24/7 365 emergency service to tackle leaking pipes and other emergencies.
In Melbourne, the property owner is responsible for all of the internal piping. In other words, it is your responsibility to ensure that all of the pipes are in good working order. And the best way to do this is to call a responsible plumber like Reed for maintenance and repairs. It will prevent pipes from leaking in the first place. If you are renting, however, you can call the landlord to resolve the issue.
You don’t want to wait until you notice obvious signs of a leak. At this stage, it is too late. Plumbers have sophisticated tools to enable them to detect leaks. Even if the leak is under concrete or behind a wall, the plumber can use ground microphones or listening discs for detection. Of course, they will also do the typical checks on fixtures, taps, drains, and pipes, to see if anything is awry.
It depends on the type of leak. If the leak is coming from a joint, then we can simply tighten up the joint to stop the leak. However, if the leak is coming from the pipe itself, we will need to turn off the water supply and replace the pipe with a better one. If the leak on the pipe is tiny, then we can apply epoxy putty, tape, or compound sticks. However, it is still better to replace the pipe even if the leak is tiny. Better safe than sorry. Bandaids are no match for structural integrity when it comes to durable water systems.
