Leaks can occur in household water pipes, fittings and appliances. They are not always visible, so the best method of detection is to read your water meter regularly. If your consumption increases dramatically for no obvious reason, there could be a hidden leak.
To check for leaks:
TIP: Check the toilet system by putting a drop of food colouring into the cistern. If the colour appears in the toilet bowl before flushing, you have a leak.
If you locate or suspect a leak, contact your plumber or contact us for assistance here.
