WATER is such a precious resource and should not be wasted! Depending on the severity of the water leak and whether there's been a major waterpipe burst, the water service may need to be partially or completely replaced.

Hot Water Unit issues
When the hot water unit fails to deliver hot water, it can cause major disruption to business and general daily life for showers, washing dishes and clothes. Fault detection and repairs of the hot water system are carried out where possible, however hot water units don't last forever.
When the hot water unit needs to be replaced there's a few things to consider.
There's the choice of a 'storage' or 'continuous flow' (Instantaneous) hot water unit with options of an electric, gas, solar or heat pump hot water system.
Each option has advantages and disadvantages so it's important to have an experienced plumber who can advise and install the best suited hot water system for purpose that takes into account energy sustainability and cost.
TEMPERING VALVE can be installed to most hot water systems to manage the hot water temperature setting. This is to ensure that hot water is delivered at a safer temperature and to provide greater protection against scalding hot water incidents. Maintenance checks can be performed to ensure that the device is working properly and replaced if found to be faulty. Adjustments to the tempering valve can be made to ensure that water is delivered at the desired temperature.
Taps are so convenient to access water for indoor wet areas and outdoor garden/ living spaces. It is easy to take them for granted until you have a problem. A leaking &/or noisy tap is annoying that wastes precious natural resources and your money!
There can be a number of causes for a leaking &/or noisy tap. Loose 0-ring, worn seals, loose parts, age of the tapware or the water pressure being too high could be any one of the contributing factors. A faulty washer or mixer cartridge is the most common cause of a leaking tap/ mixer tap. Often the mechanical components can be replaced but in some cases the solution is to completely replace and install new tapware.
