A dripping tap can waste up to 150 litres a day
Adelaide’s Expensive Water
Households should be aware that leakages from cracked or blocked pipes and drains can quickly have an effect on your bank balance.
Adelaide has the most expensive water of any major Australian City.
The total average charge for an Adelaide house will be $1362 in 2014, up from $854 in 2009. This is 53% higher than the average bill in Melbourne.
Small leaks in cracked pipes soon start having a dramatic effect on your water bills.
Household Water Waste
Leaks from your bathroom fittings, if left unresolved, can seriously affect your water bill.
A dripping tap can waste 150L of water per day. A leaking toilet or cistern could cause your daily water use to increase by 250L. A tiny crack in a pipe connected to your bathroom could leak over 300L of water in 24 hours.
In addition to inflating your bills, leaks can damage walls, electrics and contribute to increased damp and mould. Don’t let a little leak make a big dent in your finances. If you have a long standing plumbing problem in your bathroom, the best thing to do is to call an Accredited Plumber.
