Solved Plumbing can fix your shower issues, preventing increased water bills and allowing you to have that fabulous, refreshing shower again.
Most people are used to the odd drip out of a shower. The problem with serious shower leaks is that they often come out of the pipes, not the showerhead. Although not as visible, they can be much worse and cause a lot of inconvenience.
The typical indications of leaky showers are:
Water stains on walls or leakage in adjoining floors are signs of leaks in pipes. The leaks may be some distance from the ensuite or bathroom. Call a plumber ASAP.
You may see an unusual amount of moisture remaining in the shower area, which can indicate some form of leakage. This may not be a huge problem, but may be worth getting it checked out if the problem persists.
Increased water bills and power costs may point to a leak. If your electricity bill is higher, the leak may relate to your hot water system. It’s best to get a plumber in sooner rather than later, to prevent higher energy bills.
If the hot water leaks when the tap is off, this may be worth getting checked out.
Mould indicates excess water is leaking in and around the shower area. Some mould can be unhealthy, too, causing allergic reactions or sickness. Mould can also make shower surfaces slippery, and dangerous. Keep shower areas free of mould by using a good mould remover when cleaning.
