How does a leaking pipe sound?
A leaking pipe usually makes sounds of flowing-water, whistles or hisses.
What causes pipe raptures in Melbourne?
Among the main factors are the following:
Water pressure and blockages
The accumulation of objects such as dirt, hair and cooking oils in pipes can cause the occurrence of a blockage that changes water pressure, thus producing pipe cracks.
Maybe your house’s plumbing was not set up properly. E.g., maybe not enough sealant was applied or wrong fitting was used.
The above leads to leaking pipes sooner or later.
Although to a lesser extent than metal pipes, copper pipes are also affected by corrosion which causes small holes to appear in pipes over time, and water seeps through them causing water leaks.
The trees that surround your property add to its beauty, but their roots could be pressing and ultimately damaging your water pipes.
What are some signs of a leaking pipe in your home?
Your water bills keep getting more expensive for no apparent reason.
Cold fact: a small rapture in your property can cause up to ninety gallons of water to be lost in just one day.
If this rapture gets bigger or others appear, this will also be reflected in your Water Bill until you make the respective repair.
Mould & Mildew
Even a shower that is cleaned every day could have a little mould and mildew, but if you see the above on bathroom or kitchen floors, walls or ceilings, it could be due to a pipe drip.
On the other hand, you may not be able to see but smell mould and mildew if these are under the floor or inside your walls or vents.
Damaged / Stained Floors, Walls and Ceilings
The appearance of stains implies the existence of moisture behind the surface where they are located.
Although they may be small at first, if they aren’t attended timely, they can end up causing serious damage to your property.
Likewise, creaky floorboards, bendable walls and sagging ceilings end up collapsing, which, in addition to costing you money, could put the people on your property at risk.
Note that the above will inevitably happen if you don’t repair the leaking pipe/s that is/are causing such damage.
A leaking pipe could undermine your home’s foundation, and thus progressively destroying your walls, doors, windows, and floors.
You could also see moist spots on your lawn or outside your house. Moreover, you might also find mud or puddles around your outer walls even in the summer.
This is dangerous because that water could seep under your house and cause its foundations to move, thus compromising the integrity of its structure.
