Bathrooms are wet places and water around your bathroom sink, or vanity, is not uncommon in most Australian homes. A small leak around the taps in your vanity sink may seem like nothing – in fact you may mistake it for the kids splashing water around or a result of some over enthusiastic teeth brushing, but it can cause major damage when not repaired before it becomes a big problem.
Mainline Plumbing and Cheap Hot Water and Gas specialise in repairing small problems before they become big, costly issues in homes throughout the South West. Whether it be a pipe dripping into the vanity cupboard or faulty taps above, the team at Mainline Plumbing and Cheap Hot Water and Gas can repair efficiently and affordably.
Vanity leaks are not always visible and can cause a lot of damage to:
- Inside the Cupboards
- On the Vanity Surface
- To Your Water Bill
In the Cupboards
Check under the sink. A leak in the taps or in the pipes below will result in the vanity being wet – all the time. This will inevitably lead to rot in the cupboard material (usually wood, chip board or some form of melamine with plastic coating) and the need to replace the entire unit. Replacing a vanity is not a simple job and needs to be done by a professional, so save yourself labour, materials and the cost of a brand-new vanity and have the leaking pipes inspected and repaired by a professional.
On the Vanity Surface
Check any bathroom and you’ll find some form of water pooling around the vanity sink. This is normal if you’ve just washed your hands or the kids have a tendency to play in the water more than wash with it, but if water is slowly dribbling around the base of the taps, its highly likely it will leak behind the sink itself and start to cause mould and rot.
To Your Water Bill
Whether it’s leaking from the pipes below, the taps above or dripping directly from the spout itself, that’s water being wasted and costing you money. Small leaks add up to big dollars on the water bill, increasing your consumption 24 hours a day.
