2 Plumbing Myths That Are Costing You Money

1. Small leaks are not an immediate issue

“It’s barely a few drips from the tap, it’s nothing to worry about.”

That’s what out parents told us when we alerted them of an annoying ‘drip drip drip’ from a tap. But as it turns out, a leaking fixture is a problem. No matter how big or small

It may be a small dripping in your home, but when you add up all the drippings going on in Australia, all of the millions of homes, taps, sinks dryers and showers., there are 1 trillion litres of waters beings wasted every year. that’s a lot of water!

Due to the current lack of water supply in the world, letting your tap drip is a blatant disregard for the earth, and on a more personal level, it can also cost you literally hundreds of extra dollars every year! Still, think that leaky tap is not an issue?

And don’t try to save money and just turn the tap head super tight. You’re going to need to spend cash and get a professional in to fix that leak. “Spend a little now, save a lot later”



2—If it fits in the toilet, it’s flushable




The only thing that should be flushed down the toilet is the human waste and toilet paper. Everything else is a potential cost risk.

You should never flush wet wipes, tampons, condoms or facial wipes down the toilet.

Due to the absorbent and resistant nature of these products, they will not break down, in fact, they will expand in water and cause blockages.

Repeated dumping of these products will actually cause blockages down your sewer line. This can cost thousands to fix.

Also, refrain from flushing pharmaceuticals, the ingredients in these pills cannot be broken down. They will ruin your pipes, and even waste plants cannot break them down  To keep things simple. If it isn’t human waste or toilet paper – don’t flush it down!

If you notice early signs of clogging, for example, a gurgling toilet when you flush. You should contact a plumber immediately.
