Leaking water pipe issues can be tough to locate. That is unless you can physically and visually see the pipe and the water leaking from it.
The reason a leaking water pipe is hard to see and even more difficult to locate is that a water pipe is almost always concealed. It will be either underground or in the floor or in the wall or in the ceiling.
Confusing, puzzling, frustrating are all a good description of a suspected water pipe leak. That’s because water leaking to the surface in your concrete drive is seldom where the actual leaking pipe is located. Water will travel a long way taking the easiest route down a previously excavated trench before it comes bubbling to the surface.
A leaking water pipe in the water main buried in the ground is the most common leak repaired by Whywait Plumbing. The water main pipe is the pipe that is connected to the water meter that then runs around the property into your home or business premises.
The water main pipe is 99% of the time completely concealed underground. Often you don’t realise you have a leak until you receive a bill from Gold Coast Water or Logan Water telling you that you owe them thousands of dollars.
Very simply the property owner is responsible for all water pipes including all underground water main pipes after the council meter. As far as the law is concerned, it is your responsibility as the property owner to check if you have a leaking water pipe and to organise for a licensed plumber to carry out all repairs.
