Have you recently received a high water bill for the quarter? Is it quite excessive? High water usage can result from a few different reasons but a big reason could be a concealed water leak on the property.
This is the type of leak you can not see or recognise and one that could be quite costly as a home owner.
The definition of a concealed leak is a water leak on your property that is hidden from your view. A concealed leak is usually because of a cracked pipe either located underground or inside the house walls.
If the leak is located underground, you may notice a somewhat greener or damper patch of grass overtime, however this usually goes unnoticed. The picture here is of a concealed water leak (excavated), slight dampness to the ground cover but ultimately it was a high usage water bill that alerted the owner to identify he had a possible water leak on their property. This prompted a call to us here at Plumbaround.
The best way to detect a concealed water leak on your property is to contact your local plumber to perform a pressure test on the property water line. This can determine whether or not you have a water leak on the property. From here, your plumber will locate the leak for you or organise leak detection to do so.
Our plumbers are highly skilled and we have equipment to help locate a concealed water leak for you.
Please contact our office for further information on how we can assist you today to either find that costly leak or prevent a possible leak!
