General Water Leaks

Water leaks at any time of the day or night can be a nightmare. Especially if you ever experience the likes of a burst water storage tank or a hot water cylinder. It has been my experience that a lot of water plumbing leaks can go undetected for a very long time. But if you have a water leak in your property, there will be always visible signs you can look for. Some of the following may apply, black mould on walls and ceilings, timber or wooden flooring lifting, tiles lifting, kitchen units swelling, door frames, architraves, and skirting’s, boards swelling. If a water leak is present in your hot press area then your clothes or personal belonging may suffer water damage.
If you suspect you presently have a plumbing water leak, it’s very important you find it as soon as you can. Have you noticed any of the following, a reduction in your water pressure or strange noises from your plumbing system that were not present before?
If plumbing water leaks are detected and you are just dealing with a small surface water leak this will only cause minimal damage. But if a plumbing water leak is not caught early and allowed to soak into plaster walls and ceilings, timber or wooden flooring, tiles, kitchen units, door frames, architraves, or skirting’s boards then the water damage and cost can be major.

Who is responsible?

Another question we are often asked who is responsible for a plumbing water leak. If you are a homeowner, and the plumbing water leak is on your property, then you are responsible for the cost of having it repaired. Alternatively if the plumbing water leak is on your incoming mains water supply pipe and is leaking outside your property boundary then Irish Water should be your first port of call.
