Sydney Water Leak Detection

A leaking pipe can go unnoticed for several weeks as the signs are not always immediately visible. Water pipes, unlike shower heads and taps, are closed and hidden in your walls. This makes it difficult to see leaking pipes. However, there are common signs that you can look out for.

  1. Water Hammer: When you turn off the tap and hear a loud thumping sound, then you’ve experienced a water hammer. Water hammers are caused by an immediate change of water flow direction, creating a pressure wave to ripple through your pipes placing extreme stress your water plumbing. Hammers are definitely not good for your leaking pipes, and in fact, accelerate the wear and tear of your pipes and fixtures, it can also cause irreversible damage to taps or valves and even rupture the internal network of pipes.
  2. Dampness: Walls, floors and ceilings will often start to discolour and show strange marks due to dampness and eventually mould.
