Leaking pipes: costly for more than just your wallet

water leaking on ground

No one can afford leaking pipes. Not the country, not the state, not your home’s foundations, and not your wallet. Water leaking underground can be costly, not only to you but to the environment as well.


With water being another part of the household bills, you can’t afford to have it wasting away. Not only will you be paying higher water bills, but it can damage the foundations of your home too. The leaking water can erode dirt and stones, leaving empty voids underground. These voids will eventually collapse, creating sinkholes, leaving your foundations unstable.

Paying excessive amounts on your bill or on building work is not the only problem, though. The leaking water can enter natural underground reservoirs and contaminate them.
