Here's a step-by-step guide to help you identify potential leaks in your home before you call the experts in:

Initial Checks:

Begin by inspecting common water usage points around your home.


Toilets often become the usual suspects due to faulty seals in the cistern, leading to visible leaks in the bowl.

Additionally, ensure your dishwasher, washing machine, and hot water system are functioning without any drips.


If any tap is dripping and can't be shut off, it's time to call a plumber.

Irrigation Systems:

Your outdoor irrigation system can also be a culprit.


Examine solenoids, valves, and connections to the main water supply.


Over time, these components can wear out and become leak sources."

Yard Inspection:

Notice any damp patches in your yard?
