Faults

It’s enough to drive you mad.

Drip, drip, drip – a toilet keeps filling, a dripping tap echoes in the kitchen, a dripping shower make a mess in the bathroom or a pipe keeps spreading water and mould through a wall.

Leaks and drips and blockages can keep you up at night, add extra costs your water bill and damage to your property.

Most of these little niggles around the house can be solved with a bit of DIY elbow grease, like changing the washers or tightening a nut with a wrench. But if problems with your water system persist or get worse, then it pays to call in the experts at Silva Plumbing Service.

Many issues that affect a functional wet area are easily remedied. For example, stopping a tap from dripping or keeping toilet plumbing from constantly filling might be as simple as examining how the plumbing elements of your home are arranged.

Do your pipes sound more like hard rock than smooth radio? There are many reasons your shuddering pipes may be making so much racket.

Knocking pipes may be caused by the poor original installation of the pipework, with loose fixings failing to hold the sections in place. Loose items within the pipes may be tumbling around, creating noise when water pressure hits them. Water hammer, also known as plumbing hammer, may occur when you shut off water and a thumping noise is heard. This could mean that valves are malfunctioning, creating waves of pressure that surge back and forth, placing strain on the pipes and your ears.

Noisy pipes can cause property damage

Noisy pipes are usually a symptom of a bigger problem that could cause severe and expensive damage to your water system.

If pipes are not securely fixed, they will be unable to handle the continued strain placed on them by water pressure. Over time, the repetitive knocking of a copper or plastic pipe against a sharp edge or foreign object like a nail or saddle may wear away a section of the water supply pipe. This increases the risk of having a burst pipe that causes water damage to your property. And malfunctioning valves could cause damage to your hot water system and its pipelines, causing rapid cessation of water flow that sends waves of high pressure back through the system.

Sorting out the problem

Noisy plumbing can sometimes be dismissed as a quirk of your property, something to be tolerated or worked around. But if left unattended, noisy pipes can lead to serious damage for your water system and your property.

By diagnosing the problem correctly and coming up with a solution, you can stop your pipes making noise and ensure your water system functions as it should, smoothly and securely.

Silva Plumbing Service’s team of experts can come to your property and diagnose the problem, usually by just listening to the noise your pipes make and observing where the sound comes from.

We also carry professional assessment and diagnosis equipment, which greatly increases our efficacy and prevents unnecessary cost by keeping invasive repairs to a minimum.

Home water systems are usually quite simple designs – there's a pressurised water main (or property service), a hot water system and a series of pipes connected to the bathrooms that deliver and drain the water. But even with the simplest design there are a million things that can go wrong.

Problems with your water system

You turn on the bath taps and nothing comes out from the blocked pipes, there's no hot water for the shower you were looking forward to, or the taps just dribble and shudder with low water pressure. There could be a number of causes for a problem with your home's water system. These range from valve malfunctions in the pipes and glitches in the hot water system itself, to a blockage or kink in the water supply further up stream.

There are some simple solutions you can try out yourself. The pilot light may have gone out on your hot water system, which may be able to be re-lit, or over tightening a tap and releasing it quickly might free up a stuck tap washer or change its sealing position. However, these short-term fixes may not solve the problem for good.

Have you been receiving unexpectedly high water bills? Are you wondering why this is happening and what you can do about it? Would you like a solution?

Many people don't realise that they're paying far more than they need to. A high water bill can be caused by a range of hidden factors, like damaged pipes, or undiagnosed water loss resulting from a particular appliance or fixture. By employing one of Silva Plumbing’s experienced plumbers to locate and fix these problems, you could potentially save hundreds of dollars in water bill fees over the lifetime of the leak.

Why do you have such a high water bill?

For a start, your pipes might be causing the problem. In most homes, pipes are constructed out of sight or underground. So if one of them is damaged, leaking or broken, you might not notice. However, over the course of a year, such a leak can lead to thousands and thousands of litres of wasted water, which, of course, means a high water bill for you.

The same goes for leaking taps, fixtures and toilets. Did you know that a single leaking tap can waste thousands of litres of water per year? And then there could be appliances that are using far more water than they should.

Another of the most common - yet undiagnosed - problems is water meters. A faulty water meter can lead to an exorbitantly high water bill. If this is the case, it's crucial to have the meter replaced by the relevant authority.

How can Silva Plumbing Service help you?

If you suspect that you're paying more than you should, you can enlist one of our fantastic plumbers to find out what's going on. Here at Silva Plumbing Service, we're passionate about making our customers' lives better, more convenient and less expensive. We don't believe that you should pay a cent more for your water or plumbing services than is necessary.

So, at your request, we'll send one of our team members to your home. They'll examine every aspect of your plumbing, from pipes to appliances, to find out if any water is being wasted and why. That includes helping you to take care of water meter leaks and replacement.

Questions?

Would you like some advice about your high water bill? Do you need to know more about pipes, fixtures or water meter leaks and replacement? Please don't hesitate to contact us at a time that suits you.
