When water is being used in the house the noise transmission from the water running through the pipes can be heard from most areas in the house. When you’re sleeping at night and you are woken up by a noise of running water and you get up and check that there’s no taps running this means that you have a water leak.

Sometimes you have a burst pipe and you can see it. You check outside and you notice that the grass is very green in one area of your front lawn and that the grass underfoot is very wet and boggy and the water is bubbling up to the surface.

There are times when you have a leaking pipe but you can’t hear it. When this happens it’s possible you’ll only notice when you see an increase in the price of your water bill.

If you think that you have a water leak then you should check the water meter. If the water meter is spinning then you should call a plumber.

When you have a water leak by your house water leaking by your footings can bring white ants and can damage the footings and foundations. Water leaks can be caused by rusting pipes, the breakdown of the piping material and sometimes tree roots can grow under a water pipe and lift it and crush it causing a water leak.

Water pressure in Sydney is anywhere between 300 KPA and 1500 KPA. It’s important to make sure that your water pressure is no more than 500 KPA.

Most ceramic disc Tapware is rated at 500 KPA. This means that the water pressure should not exceed 500 KPA otherwise the ceramic disc tapware could start to leak meaning you would need to get your tapware replaced.
