Water leak or dripping water can accumulate to huge buckets of water. It is shown that such leaks can easily adds up to at least 5,000 litres per year. It means paying more for your utilities and it is definitely cheaper to engage a plumber to fix the water leak than paying for the utility bills over the long run.
How Do You Know That There Is Water Leak?
Sometimes you may not know that there is water leak because the leak is not visible to you. What should you do? You cannot engage a plumber every month to check for water leak because it will cost you substantially over a year.
Do not worry. It is actually quite easy to check for water leak at home. All you have to do is to turn off all water taps inside the house or apartment and make sure that no one is using any water (not even the automatic machines). Then, you go to the water meter and record the reading. Thereafter, you can go and run your errands or do your marketing. If no one is at home, you can also go to work. Once you return home, either from work or running errant (at least 30 mins to an hour), check the reading again. If the reading remains the same, it means that there is no water leak. If the reading changes, it is time to call in the plumber to fix the water leak. If the change in reading is substantial, it means that the water leak is not small and immediate attention should be given.
