Our Most Frequently Asked Questions Answered.
Why are my gutters overflowing?
An overflowing gutter could be due to leaves and debris blocking the gutter or downpipe which in turn stops the flow of water to discharge correctly.
This can then cause water to overflow the side of the gutter either on to the ground below or back onto the eaves of your house. Ensure you have your gutters cleaned on a regular basis by a contractor that is trained in working at heights procedures. Also, the problem may be that your gutters are leaking through a faulty gutter joint that requires resealing. Find out more about our expert roofing services in Port Macquarie.
How much water does a shower use?
Water-efficient showerheads are limited to use 9 litres per minute or less.
So a 10-minute shower will use approximately 90 litres of water or over 32,850 litres of water per year per person – based on one 10 minute shower per day, double that if your a two shower per day kind of person.
Why is my toilet leaking?
There can be a couple of reasons why.
Firstly, the inlet valve is faulty and not shutting off which is causing the cistern to constantly filling up or the outlet valve or outlet washer is worn out, therefore, letting water leak out of the cistern into the toilet pan.
There will be times that you won’t even be able to hear the inlet valve, as it can be such a small leak and super quiet.
Why is my tap leaking?
A leaking tap or dripping tap usually means that the tap washer requires renewing although it can also be caused by a damaged valve seating within the tap.
We recommend a tap washer service is undertaken on the tap.
