How to fix a water leak.

To fix a water leak might be something as simple as addressing a dripping or leaking tap. Although in some situations it could be something more serious that requires a leak detection process to be carried out to find the source of where the water is coming from. These types of water leaks could be in walls, under floors or even in the back yard with the source not obvious sometimes as the water moves or flows from the problem area and pools elsewhere. 



The most common leak is from a tap. This usually means that the tap washer needs renewing although it can also be caused by a damaged valve seating. The cause of the leak will also vary depending on the type of tap and mixer set up you have installed.The cost of repairing a water leak can vary greatly based on what the cause of the leak is, the severity of the damage and the location of the repair required. Nu-Trend has all the latest equipment to detect water leaks in any part of a property.


If you leave a leak for too long it can create further damage than you can imagine, especially if it effects the property’s foundations or internal structures. Nu-Trend has all the latest equipment to detect and repair water leaks in any part of a property quickly;

  • House, unit, apartment or townhouse.

  • Residential, commercial, industrial or rental properties.

  • Same day high pressure water jet blasting available.

  • Same day inspection and dig up available.

  • Burst pipe location and CCTV digital camera inspections.

How much does it cost to fix a leaking tap?

Well the cost to fix a leaking tap is a tough one to answer because it really depends what is causing the leak. There are lots of different parts to a tap and of course thousands of models or brands that are used. 

So a basic tap washer replacement might cost between $99 and $199 but depending on the age, the parts needed or the accessibility of the tap the pricing can vary.

There could be cases where replacing the whole tap is more economical than replacing or repairing a small part of it which would also give you long term reliability benefits.

Why is my tap leaking?

Your tap could be leaking for a few reasons and it will depend on the type of hardware and its age. The valve seating may have worn or the washer needs replacing.

What happens if you can't fix a water leak?

If it looks like the problem can’t be solved we will stop all work being done and provide you with a range of choices to take. Depending on the model of tap, its condition or age, it may mean the piece or part is broken as part of trying to assess it. 

Generally a leaking tap is a straight forward plumbing repair job but there can be examples where there are hidden surprises for us. Luckily with with 15 years experience we’ve come across most problems to then know what to do 

How do you stop a dripping mixer tap?

We can provide a written estimate as required and will then re-asses the work required once we are on site. Sometimes the initial job request may need further work once we have seen or uncovered the issue that is causing the leak.

How do I know if a main water line is leaking?

Leaks under a slab, basement floor or house footings are perhaps the most difficult to detect given they are concealed. Your first step is to see if your meter dial is moving (even slowly) even though no water is being used inside the property.

How do you find a water leak under concrete?

Finding a water leak under a concrete slap is one of the most difficult to fix because it is so well concealed.

Once you engage a plumber it could take them a couple of hours to trouble shoot the cause of the leak as they work through a process of elimination on your site.

Depending on the situation more work may be required, including tools to listen and pressure test your piping to expose the leak.

Who is responsible for a broken main water line?

This really depends on where the main water line is located, then it would either be the Council or Property Owner’s responsibility.
