Do I Have A Leak?

Very often the first indication you get that you have a water leak is a phone call or letter from your water supply authority advising your water usage is higher than normal, or worse, you get your water bill.

THIS IS WHERE WE CAN HELP. GETTING LEAKTECH TO SITE EARLY CAN SAVE YOU MONEY.

Excess Water Usage

Your total water consumption includes water you are legitimately consuming. What you really need to know is how much water you are losing. You can easily establish your water loss with a simple water meter test. There are simple tests you can do prior to calling us if you wish. These tests will establish if there is a leak.

OF COURSE, LEAKTECH CAN DO THESE AND MANY MORE TESTS TO ESTABLISH WITH 100% CERTAINTY IF THERE IS A LEAK AND PINPOINT THE LEAK.

Water Meter Test

Step 1

Observe your water meter (usually at the front of the property) for at least 30 minutes. Record the number on each dial at the beginning of the period. Make sure no one or any appliances are using water at the time of observation. If the numbers have changed, then you have a leak.

If you need to know how to read your water meter, jump on the website for your water authority for instructions. See below for links:

Step 2

  • Check all taps and hoses are turned off.
  • Check for dripping taps.
  • Turn off any washing machine, dishwasher, fridge/freezers with water and/or ice dispensers.
  • Turn off toilet stop cock.

Return to observe your water meter. If the meter has stopped moving, then one of your appliances or toilet has a leak. You can then work your way through each appliance to find which one is leaking.

Step 3

If the meter is still turning, then you have a hidden pressure pipe leak.
