Signs You Have A Possible Water Leak & Need A Leak Detection Expert

Let’s face it, water leaks are common. Where there are water pipes and sewer drains, there is the potential for water leaks. The problem is that sometimes the signs you have a water leak are hidden. You may not realise you have a water leak until the damage is done.

These are the most common telltale signs that you need to call us and book a water leak detection plumber ASAP:

  • Reduced or fluctuating water pressure at taps;
  • Reduced temperature hot water at your taps;
  • More expensive than normal City of Gold Coast water rates notice;
  • Wet or damp walls both inside or outside;
  • Wet patches or isolated puddles forming on your lawn that never dry up;
  • Cracking in concrete or paved areas;
  • Wet or damp carpet;
  • A mouldy, damp odour;
  • Mould stains on walls or tile grout;
  • The sound of water running when no tap is turned on;
  • Your water meter keeps spinning when all taps are turned off;

Indoor & Outdoor Leak Detection Specialists

Water leaks can be outside (under paving, beneath lawns, near water tanks) or inside (inside walls, near toilets, under flooring, in the ceiling).

Water leaks are dangerous as they slowly undermine and damage your infrastructure, attract termites and above all lead to high water bills.

Checking your water meter regularly for potential water leaks and repairing them immediately is the simplest way to save water and money.

Calling just any plumber will not help as leak detection is a specialist skill that requires state of the art leak detection equipment. Whywait Plumbing provides a specialist leak detection service using our state-of-the-art acoustic leak detection technologies and techniques. 

We are renowned for rapidly detecting and repairing all water leaks.

We answer the phone, 24/7. Calls don’t go through to an answering service, you speak directly to our experienced customer service staff who will schedule the leak detection at a time that suits you.

Google Review

“Earlier this week I woke to find the main water pipe that supplies water to the house had burst underground and I had to shut the water supply off. I called Whywait Plumbing Services at 7:30am and they arrived around 30 minutes later and got straight into fixing it. I was quoted upfront so I knew what the cost would be but was pleasantly surprised when the invoice was a bit less as the job took less time then expected. I highly recommend Whywait Plumbing Services and will definitely use them again, they were professional and courteous.”
