Think You Might Have A Pesky Water Leak?

Most people don’t even know they have a water leak. The W.A auditing general has reported the Water Corporation loses billions of litres of water every year due to leaks. More than half of these water leaks go undetected.

A regular leak can be irritation and unsightly but it’s the inaudible leaks that homeowners need to be paying attention to. They have the potential to run up your water bill into the hundreds over the year.

G.X.R’s water leak detection team are specialists in detecting and fixing water leaks. Using their acoustic leak detection tools they can find even the smallest of inaudible leaks. If you have any signs of a water leak make sure to call G.X.R right away as a leak can easily cause long-term, expensive structural damage.

While some water leakage is more visibly obvious (flooding, a burst pipe or a leaky shower head), it’s the hidden inaudible leaks that are often the more dangerous and costly. This is partly because the majority of water leaks are hidden. Not just that, but a plumbing leak can cost you big time. Every drop of water that’s leaking is a drop out of your wallet! Don’t waste time or risk structural damage to your home if you suspect a water leak!
