Leaking of the water tank is not just a waste of water, in fact, it can cause a lot of problems for you in different ways. For example, the first and very obvious problem is that water is being wasted and there are many surveys that suggest that we need to use the water carefully. There would be a shortage of water for our next generation if we don’t prevent the drinkable water to be wasted.
Next, it will hurt you in a way that you need to spend much of your hard-earned money on a water bill that you never used. If you have a leaking water tank, it will continuously water the water and your water pump will keep working to keep the water tank filled up to the mark.
The more water leak, the more electricity will be used to refill the water tank and you will get more water bills at the end of each month. Now the money that you could spend on the weekend for a night out with family has to be paid as a water bill.
Another problem that you could face, if your water tank is placed on the top roof and it is leaking for many months and you are not aware of that, then your ceiling could get damaged because of the much moisture absorption by the roof.
This water leaking will destroy your ceiling, and could also destroy the paint or any other decoration on the ceiling. It could destroy your underground wiring as well that can cause many electrical products to malfunction.
It can also destroy your walls that can cause the wall paint peeled and looks bad. This water leak when deposits a lot of water on the floor for a long period of time, can help in creating cracks in the roof that can weaken the overall structure of the building. It can also create cracks in the walls that could be dangerous.
To fix all these things, like cracks on the roof, cracks in the wall, weak structure, peeling paint, you need to spend thousands of dollars. And if you know that you have a tank leak, you could repair it on time with just a few hundred dollars. Or in some cases, you could fix it yourself.
But since, detection of water leaks was not done at the right time, now you have to spend a lot of money not only to stop the water leak but also to fix and recover the weak structure of your building.
Continous water tank leaks will also reduce the life of your water pump as well as it will be switched on for more than the required time. It could also damage the whole water tank and you need to get a replacement for the water tank. Whereas, you could simply repair that water tank if you could detect the water leak at the very starting point.
You can understand that these are not simple problems. So make sure that keep checking the water leak possibilities in your house. If possible, have a yearly inspection as well by a certified water leak detection company.
