Reliable leaking repair services in Byron Bay

Have you noticed some leaks at your home? Avoid the guessing game and give our team of professional plumbers a call today. The team at Fantastic Plumbing can find and fix drips and leaks before they cause major damage. If leaks are left unattended your floors, walls and pipes may have to completely replaced.

The team at Fantastic Plumbing are highly skilled in water leak detection and are also fully equipped with the latest and greatest tools and equipment to provide water leak detection services. Our specialist equipment allows us to hear behind walls and through floors to accurately find where leak is located so we can fix the issues efficiently with minimal damage to your property.

The following are symptoms of a leak which needs to be repaired:

  • A higher than usual water bill – sometimes the council notify you of this
  • Meter ticking over when no taps/toilets in use
  • Pump going when no taps/toilets in use
  • Limited hot water
  • Big puddles on your property when it is very sunny
  • No or very low water pressure
  • Contaminated water (might look a bit orange or brown when it comes out of the tap)
  • Damp/mouldy walls and floors
  • Water running sounds
  • Water stains on ceiling or walls

What Damage Can Leaking Taps Cause?

Although a leaking tap can appear to be a minor issue that can be solved with a quick fix – this is not always the case. If leaking taps are unattended major problems can begin to unfold. Sometimes we can repair the tap by servicing it, sometimes a replacement will be required.

Water damage is the most significant problem associated with leaking taps. Water from your tap can leak into other areas in your kitchen/laundry/bathroom such as inside cabinets, on walls or on the floor. As a result, this can form mould growth and large water stains which can lead to other jobs and professionals required.

Leaking taps can also be a very large addition to your water bill. Every drop wasted is money down the drain and eventually, it all adds up. If you are on tank water and we are in a dryer climate, any water wastage must be avoided- please don’t delay in having the issue fixed.

If you notice a significant change in your water bills, do not hesitate to call the Fantastic Plumbing team.

What Damage Can A Concealed Leak Cause?

Concealed leaks are more difficult to locate but with our audio equipment, we can systematically isolate the issue to minimise the intrusion to your home or business. You may become aware of a concealed leak from the council or from noticing that your water meter is ticking over when there is nothing being used. It is very important to get this fixed as soon as possible so your foundations don’t become damaged.

We are the only supplier in the Northern Rivers who have invested in this technology (see video by the manufacturer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TO2ctncF6nY) and we would love to assist you to locate the issue, be it in the ground, under concrete, or in a wall.

We’re happy to help support your regular plumber if that isn’t us with this task also.

  • Fantastic Plumbing lived up to their name. On time, polite, reliable and created confidence in explaining details of my hot water system to one of those husbands who missed the handyman gifts!

    Ian Bridger, Byron

  • Our hot water system was being unpredictable and unreliable, and we weren't sure what the issue was... Conor had it sorted in no time. He was responsive, efficient and helpful - even in the midst of the pre-Splendour rush... We are now enjoying lovely hot water. Thank you!!

    Jacky Morris, Suffolk Park

  • When we recently had a pipe blockage in our investment property in Ballina and our tenant sent us photos we were organizing the fix from NZ. Thankfully we contacted Fantastic Plumbing who located the blockage, jetted it until the pipe was cleared and …. CLEANED UP!!! We were in the process of trying to get a cleaner to the property when Conor sent us photos of the completed work. After speaking to out tenant who couldn’t be happier we saved on the cleaner! If you want no hassels in plumbing do yourself a favour and call Fantastic Plumbing.

He showed great attention to detail and I received a summary of the consultation with detailed information and photos for each issue that was needing attention, and for those that were functioning perfectly.
