Living in Sydney, leak detection is a valuable skill to have in a plumbers repertoire.
As properties get older, services (through no fault of their own) deteriorate and often result in water leaks.
Copper pipes, as great as they are often placed in vulnerable positions when confronted with variables like thermal expansion and structural movement. Over time, these kinds of things can place stress on sections of pipe and often joints resulting in cracks and pinholes.
Knowing what to look for and where to look is paramount in diagnosing and repairing the issue at hand.
Waterproofing can also be another major cause of water leaks.
Specifically in showers. A newly installed shower will have a waterproofing applied to the underside of the tiles, however often in older properties, this is not always the case.
Throughout Sydney, leaking shower trays are a very common occurrence and if not addressed, can cause serious damage. There are many things that can go wrong with showers to which accurate testing and diagnosis proves paramount in determining the correct way to repair a problem.
Experience is the key to solving water related issues stemming from showers and at Mr 24/7 Plumbing, we are extremely experienced in the art of leaking shower repairs. You’re in safe hands.
