Below you can find MML Plumbing’s experts’ advice, on how to solve your water leak issues.

How can I detect water leaks in my house?

In the majority of situations, the water pipe running into the house is regulated for several reasons. When you notice a water leak you may want to make an appointment with a professional plumber, ASAP. You are right, the sooner you fix the leak, the less damage is happening in your home.

But there is a very important thing to know when a water leak occurs:

If the burst pipe or buried water line is internal you will need a professional plumber. When calling out a plumber with no special tools, you will end up either looking at the patchy wall together or ripping off the entire ceiling or wall to find anything. That isn’t wise.

We are dedicated to not doing damage to your property! That is why we are using advanced leak detection methods, which are non-destructive, and still finding the water source, and then moving forward to fixing it.

Recognising water leaks at home?

If a leaking pipe is not fixed quickly, it can damage your home and your health, since moisture can encourage mould development. However, you often do not notice visible signs of a leaking area until you have already suffered thousands of damage. Therefore, you should be vigilant about it. 


How to detect a water leak outside or in the garden?

If a water leak exists in an underground building or an outside building turn down the stop cock to keep water from entering your home and check the water meter movement. If the meter doesn’t move, the leaks may exist within a pipe inside the home. If your leak is inside, start to find hidden water patches on the wall or ceiling.

Common places for water leaks

If you’re unsure whether you can spot leaks, it’s worth looking at your bathroom or kitchen. Also, the boiler can lose pressure, inside the walls the cold mains, a garden tap, a leaking toilet, a radiator, and other leaks can be found.

Leaks in the garden

It makes sense to have a beautiful lawn if the area around it looks greener (and grows quicker than the remainder) or it indicates if there is water leakage. In extreme cases, a puddle might appear below the water supply line to the ground.

Appliances and Fixtures

Ensure that the cabinets under the sink are clean when the water meter test shows leakage. You can have a small leak, or a slow leak caused by a faulty toilet tank too. You will also need to look for puddles around tubs, toilets or shower walls. If you find the puddle, disconnect your water supply valve (shut off valve) and call a plumber.
