What Are Hidden Leaks?
Hidden leaks refer to water leaks in a plumbing system that are not immediately visible or easily detectable without special tools or techniques.
These leaks occur in places out of sight, such as inside walls, above ceilings, under floors, or underground.
Because they are hidden, they often go unnoticed until they cause significant damage.
Key characteristics of hidden leaks include:
- Location: Hidden leaks are typically found in pipes that run through walls, floors, ceilings, or under the ground. These areas are not readily accessible, making the leaks difficult to detect.
- Detection Difficulty: Since these leaks are not visible, special equipment such as thermal imaging cameras, acoustic leak detectors and pressure testing tools are required to detect them.
- Damage Over Time: Hidden leaks can cause considerable damage over time, such as rot in wooden structures, corrosion in metal components, and, in extreme cases, compromise the structural safety of a building.
- Water Bill Increases: Often, the first sign of a hidden leak is an unexplained increase in the water bill. This is due to the continuous loss of water from the leak.
- Health Concerns: The dampness caused by hidden leaks can lead to the growth of mould and mildew, which can have adverse health effects, especially for individuals with allergies or respiratory issues.
- Water Wastage: Hidden leaks lead to water wastage, an environmental concern, especially in water shortages.
Detecting and repairing hidden leaks as early as possible is essential to prevent extensive damage and minimise repair costs and water loss.
Regular maintenance and monitoring of the plumbing system will help early detect and prevent such leaks.
