Is your tap dripping? Is your toilet leaking?
Regular monitoring of water consumption at home and repairing leaking water fittings is profitable. A small leakage may seem insignificant but, at an annual level, it may cost a pretty penny. For example, a dripping tap may cost you 150 euros and a leaky toilet bowl over 1000 euros a year.
Leaking of water fittings is usually due to aged and hardened sealing materials. You should call a maintenance worker to replace the gaskets.
You should also monitor the condition of pipes regularly in order to avoid large water damage to the building. The easiest way to find out if there are any hidden leakages is to monitor the water metre of the building. If it is turning, but no one is using water during that time, it may indicate a leaking pipe.
In certain situations, it is possible for the customer to receive compensation of water costs for a pipe leakage in his or her real estate.
