Reasons Why Your Water Bill Is Skyrocketing!

Reasons Why Your Water Bill Is Skyrocketing!

Are you noticing that your water bills are blowing up higher than you could have imagined? You seem to be managing your water usage better than before, so why is the bill still going up? Well, you might not know it, but there could be a few key problems in your pipes that are contributing to your skyrocketing water bill.

So, what are these little but money-damaging problems that are causing you to stress? We break down the key reasons that you could be spending more money on your water bills than ever before:

  • Running or leaking toilets are a very common reason that you spend more water. Most of the time it is because of a faulty flapper in the toilet tank. Take a look at your toilet tank and check the sound to see if the water keeps running.

  • Leaky faucets and taps are another common cause of high water bills. The heavier the leak, the more water gets wasted, and the higher the water bill will be. Tighten up this little menace before it gets out of control.

  • Not all leaks occur indoors. So if you have an irrigation system in your back or front yard, there is a chance that there could be a line crack or loose joint that is allowing water to leak even when the system is off.

  • You have a blocked pipe somewhere. How does this work? Well, by having a blocked pipe, your water is rebounding against the blockage and coming back up, using more water in the process. When this is the case, you should be looking towards getting a professional in to go deep within your drainage system to find the blockage. They’ll use CCTV to find the issue, so don’t worry, they won’t rip out your home to find it.

  • Crack in your pipe system. This is a serious issue, especially if the pipe isn’t visible to you. There might be a crack in your pipe or water system in your house, and that could be causing you to drop water around the clock. If you suspect this is the case, call a plumber to help you look for it.

  • The underground pipes feeding water into your home has a crack or loose joint. This is usually the council’s problem, but if it is affecting your home, then it is a problem that you’ll have to face. Speak to your local council as soon as possible.
