Drip, drip, drip – that’s the frustrating sound of water leaking from either a tap, toilet or other plumbing fixture. It might as well be the sound of money leaking out of your pocket.
Nobody likes water leaks, and the longer they’re left, either in the home or at work, the more problems they could cause.
Fortunately, you can always rely on a professional Perth plumber to perform leak inspections that will identify and rectify any existing or future problem areas.

Where are the common areas for leaks?
Let’s take a look at the most common areas for leaks to occur in commercial buildings. Here’s a hint…they generally occur in the same places as they would in a home.
- Faucets (and taps)
Faucets and taps are used every day from washing hands, other items and filling up kettles (for the much-needed work coffees). Extensive and prolonged usage can see the rubber washers on faucets wear out, become faulty and lead to a dripping tap.
These are high traffic plumbing appliances utilised throughout the working day in a commercial building. This means all the parts (flappers, fill valves, sealants etc) can quickly wear out. This leads to water leaking out of the tank, potential damaging other components and an unnecessary increase in your water bill.
- Within your plumbing
Leaks located somewhere within your plumbing are those that can be the most difficult to identify and rectify. Whether it’s worn out from age, use or extreme weather events, leaks within your plumbing can lead to wide-scale water damage and flooding.
Without swift and professional attention, all of the above can burn a big hole in your pockets and bring about a lot of unwanted business downtime and headaches.
Thankfully, you need only to contact a Perth plumber team, like the leak specialists at Fremantle Plumbing for prompt and professional services.
