Most of you have experienced water leaks sometime in your household, and approximately 10% of homes have a water leak of some form. Wasted water from leaks can add up quickly and cause damage if the leak is not properly and thoroughly remedied.
When it comes to leak detection, it is best to call in an expert. You may wonder if it’s worth the cost of using a professional – after all, DIY is a popular trend. However, water leaks can be hidden and without specialised equipment and experience in locating leaks, it can cost you even more down the track!
How you can SAVE with professional leak detection:
- Hidden leaks are well hidden! So, you can either spend hours digging around, causing more damage without necessarily finding the leak (especially the full extent of the leak). Or, you can use a professional who utilises audio detection equipment and visual drain cameras to detect the source of the leak, without causing major upheaval in and around your home.
- Ongoing leak problems that aren’t properly repaired can cost you even more. For example, the moisture from a leak may lead to black mould, which is very difficult to remove and might require replacement of large wall sections. Likewise, you might find replacing several tiles might not be a big issue, but if your subfloor is damaged then it will be a much more expensive bill.
- DIY or inexperienced plumbers, are often remiss in locating multiple leaks or determining the full extent of the problem, therefore doing more harm than good. You might save a few dollars to start off with, thinking the problem is solved, however unbeknown to you the leak is more extensive than it originally appeared. Your water bill continues to spike and the unresolved leak(s) continue to cause more damage to your property.
On average, the cost of leak detection on the water mains of a standard residential property ranges between $180 to $300. The price may vary depending on property size, distance travelled, accessibility, time taken on the job, plus noise and weather.
