Leaking Pipes and Drains in Glasgow
It can be pretty scary and frustrating when you find a leaking pipe in your home. It could be a small drip drip leak that has formed a damp patch in the floor or it could be a full blown leak where water is steadily flowing from a leaking pipe in your home and the water is getting everywhere.
The first step to fixing the leak is to turn off your water supply. By stopping the water damage you will immediately be helping to limit the amount of damage it will cause to your property. To turn off the water supply to your home, locate your stopcock and switch off your water supply.
Once you have stopped the water flowing from the leak, the first question you need to be asking yourself is what kind of leak is it that you have? With homes across Glasgow, the way that plumbing piping and drainage has been fitted into a home can differ drastically dependent on the age of the home and indeed the style of the home. With older homes in Glasgow such as the sandstone properties across the west end, you will commonly find a ‘mix and match’ of old and new piping where the older copper piping has been mixed in with new plastic pipe work. If a pipe is leaking through metal fatigue (which is a fancy way of saying an old worn out pipe) then you may have to replace the entire length of pipe and replace it with an identical piece. There are so many variables to contend with and on top of all of that, there is also a question of access. If you know you have a leak but you can’t source it then there is the next issue of where the leak is coming from.
Lifting carpets and floor boards is a frequent requirement when it comes to fixing a leaking pipe in your home.
