Plumbing is an integral part of all homes, and plumbing maintenance is essential, as a small plumbing problem can easily turn into a large one if left unattended. All plumbing elements wear out over time. Pipes and drains will corrode from water or the air, and old fixtures will need repairing or replacement. Usually most people will not bother getting small problems fixed, it is human nature. However at the time what seems to be a small leak can turn into a larger leak resulting in further problems and damage to your home. Leaks from underneath your house can often result in mould if not repaired. Regular plumbing inspections of drains, pipes and gutters can save you financial outlay in the future and prevent possible health risks that may result from corroding pipes.
Funnily enough leaking taps are one of the small plumbing problems most people put off or leave for a ‘rainy’ day, however one slowly leaking tap can waste more than 72 litres of water a day, which over the course of a year can fill a family swimming pool! If the leak is coming from a hot tap, this may cost over $200 a year just to heat. A leaking pipe will be more in the range of water 60,000 litres of water in one year. Fixing a leak can result in at least a 10% reduction in your water bill, Sydney Water will also reimburse you for a concealed water leak once every 5 years as long as it has been diagnosed and repaired by a licensed plumber.
Regular plumbing inspections can also prevent plumbing emergencies which can be very inconvenient and expensive. Blocked drains, overflowing toilets, burst pipes and hot water tanks spark the need for an emergency plumber, and if on a weekend or late at night can result in a larger bill. Many of these emergencies can be avoided with a plumbing inspection by a licensed and experienced plumber.
