Water Renewal Services in Melbourne

Why do I need hot and cold-water renewal services?

Water is supplied to your household or workplace from a water main in your street, which is then connected to a water meter on your property. This supplies water to your fixtures. Hence, it is essential to regularly maintain the hot and cold-water mains network in your property, to ensure consistent delivery and water quality. Our water renewal specialists can assist you!

If you detect any problem with your water mains connection, a licensed plumbing service like Doherty Plumbing Solutions is your best bet in dealing with the issue – reliably, promptly and in a cost-effective way.

When do I need hot and cold-water renewal services?

There are certain warning signs that indicate it is time to undertake renewal works for your water service line.

High water bills

Sometimes, there can be an abnormally high water bill but with no obvious signs of pipe damage. This might be a sign to undertake renewal service, as there is the possibility of a hidden leak somewhere. Checking your water meter can reveal if there is a slow leak in an unseen area.

Low water pressure

A dip in water pressure in your property’s supply network could call for urgent repairs, as a blocked or a damaged pipe might be an underlying cause for this.

Pest problems

A sudden increase in pest problems around your property could be indicative of a leakage somewhere, as these are drawn towards moisture accumulating near the affected area(s).

Taste and discolouration

If there is a damaged pipe, there may be an unusual smell in the water supply or the colour of your water may be brown. Drinking water from the tap might also smell odd or slightly metallic.

Visible signs

Brownish-orange stains on appliances using water (such as heaters), or rust and corrosion, are visible signs of your water mains requiring a renewal service. Prolonged leaks could also leave watermarks on walls.

Are there wet or soggy areas in your garden? Are the foundations of your home shifting or forming cracks in your walls? These could also point to leaks in the water mains.
