Water leaks can cause a number of problems, including water damage to floors, walls, ceilings, and moisture problems, such as mould and mildew growth which can be a health hazard.
They can also increase water bills, as more water is used than is actually needed and can also lead to fire hazards, if the water comes into contact with electrical equipment.

Preventing Further Damage
If left unattended a small leak can have an impact way beyond that you can initially see such as mould growth, structural impact and the deterioration of building materials. If left unattended a small issue can escalate very quickly and cause untold issues in the long-term that may be costly and have multiple negative impacts on building and individual health and safety. Mould growth can cause respiratory issues, allergies, and other health problems.

Delaying leak detection and resolving and repairing the issue can easily lead to increased costs. The longer the leak persists the more water it wastes and the more damage it can cause. Contacting leak detection specialists to locate, access and repair the water supply pipe leak as early as possible can prevent the escalation of problems and the need for more extensive repairs, excavation or replacement pipe installation or other major building projects later down the line.
