Burst pipelines and leaking water meters can often lead to inflated water bills at the end of the month. Most people don’t even see the signs until they receive an unusually high water bill. This is usually because the water meter is located closer to the boundary wall of your property and water pipes close to that area are located underground. It can be a little difficult to determine that water meter has a leakage but a burst pipe is noticeable because you’ll see a drop in water pressure in your sinks and bathrooms. If you face either of these problems, you should call us at SPS Plumbers.
It’s vital to understand who has responsibility over the meter and the surrounding pipes. In many cases, the meters are the water company’s responsibility. However, if the meter is located within the designated mark in your property, it’s your responsibility. This means that any leaks in the meter and other pipes need to be addressed by you. However, it’s a good idea to confirm this with your water company. We are very familiar with the industry who we know the standards of the prominent companies here in Sydney. Our plumbers can tell you if the meter is your responsibility and how to handle the situation if it is not.
Fixing the Leak
After we have confirmed that the leak is on your side of the property, we get to work. This repair shouldn’t be delayed because it can cost you a lot of money in the long run. Your water bill will surge and you’ll be forced to make massive payments for water that’s just being wasted. Here’s how we fix the problem:
- Our plumber will examine the meter and the pipes to determine where exactly the leak is. If it’s still considered your responsibility, we will assess the damage.
- Once we understand the scope of the job, we will give you a quote and a timeline that would help you plan accordingly.
- The next step is to repair the damaged or burst water meter pipe. We’ll replace the damaged section with a new, more resilient one.
- After the replacement is done, we check the meter, the flow of water through the pipes, and examine the system for any cracks, before we consider our work done.
