23 Mar What’s Lurking in Your Tap Water?
Did you know that your drinking water contains a number of approved chemicals as part of the “Australian Drinking Water Guidelines,” including chlorine, nitrate, lead, aluminium, mercury and fluoride, among others?
While more and more people are turning to filtration systems and in-home water coolers for their daily drinking supply, there are still a number of preventative measures you could be taking to ensure your drinking water is as pure, safe and delicious as possible.
What to Look For
While some water damage can go by unnoticed, pay special attention to any leaking taps, toilets or appliances, as well as a higher water bill than normal, low pressure in your taps, slow draining sinks and toilets, and any issues with your hot water system.
Issues often arise from clogged drains, worn out parts on hot water heaters and sewer pipe problems, so it’s a great idea to schedule regular maintenance visits to keep your home in prime working condition and your tap water free from possible contamination.
Preventative Plumbing Maintenance
Our preventative plumbing maintenance services are the best step to making sure your tap water remains clean and healthy and to prevent an expensive and inconvenient repair down the line. Each Jeff MacDonald preventative plumbing maintenance visit includes a free Water Safety Audit, valued at $99, which includes complimentary tests to check for leaks, pressure levels, wastage, temperature and overall safety standards. Our audit ensures your water is free from bacteria and contamination and prevents the chance of scalding due to an unregulated hot water system.
We treat your home or business as if it were our own, and with over 10,000 local Gold Coast customers and over 20 years of experience, we have the record to back it up. Even better, we offer a complete quote before any work is carried out, so there are no surprises throughout the process.
The Right Tools for the Job
Did you know the average water bill of Gold Coast properties has increased by 10% in the last 4 years alone? We’re not happy about it, and chances are you aren’t either. Undetected leaks and inefficient fixtures will only increase your bill further, and if that wasn’t bad enough, broken pipes can allow contaminants to enter your water system as it flows from catchment to your kitchen sink.
Our sophisticated electronic leak detection devices, high pressure drain cleaners and pipe relining tools are the absolute right tools for the job, and as a specialist in ‘No Dig Pipe Repairs,’ you’re guaranteed to save money in the process.
