Those pesky hidden leaks are the leading cause of any sudden increases in your water bill.
Such leaks can manifest in many different areas of your plumbing system, including pipes, toilets, fixtures, and underground water lines. Often, these leaks go unnoticed for longer periods of time, leading to substantial water waste.
Toilets account for a significant portion of your home's water consumption, so it shouldn't come as any surprise that a leaking toilet can cause a significant increase in your water bill.
If you happen to notice your toilet has frequent flushing issues or has started to run longer than usual, it is time to seek the assistance of a professional plumber. A running toilet or a faulty flush valve could very easily be the reason behind your excessive water consumption.
Those seemingly minor drips coming from your taps and showerheads might not raise immediate concern, but they have the potential to waste a considerable amount of water over time.
Even a slow drip could translate to hundreds of litres lost each month, which obviously leads to a substantial increase in your water costs. Therefore, even these minor leaks should be addressed promptly.
Some outdated appliances have the potential to consume unreasonable quantities of water, ultimately resulting in inflated bills.
Old dishwashers, washing machines, and refrigerators might lack the water-conserving components prevalent in many of their contemporary counterparts. If this is the case, it is worthwhile considering an upgrade to modern, energy-efficient appliances, as the transition can help reduce your water bill.
Faulty Irrigation Systems
For properties with an irrigation system, it is important to ensure it is running efficiently.
Damaged pipes, faulty valves, or leaks within sprinkler heads can lead to considerable water waste without you realising it. Regularly inspecting your irrigation system for leaks or damage is the best way to steer clear of these problems.
Hot Water System Problems
An outdated or damaged hot water system can quickly drive up water expenses. The buildup of sediments or a malfunctioning pressure relief valve can both result in leaks or excessive water consumption.
Should you detect any unusual sounds, irregular water temperatures, or any visible indication of a leak near your hot water system, it could be time for a repair or replacement.

can not recommend enough! Great service, great price, great job.
Also love that they put part of their profit towards supporting those in need. As an added bonus I received an amazing little xmas present in the post from them. Have definitely found my plumbers for all future needs.

Jetset Plumbing, and Rylee, are fantastic. We had problems with a toilet gurgling and slow drain rates last year. Phoned Jetset Plumbing and Rylee came out. He had to install a new access point, and then identified that the pipe had bowed and that was causing the issues. A quick quote (which was competitive) and Rylee came back out with a team of people to dig up and replace that section of pipe. That was a year ago, and as part of the service Jetset Plumbing have just last month sent someone out free of charge for an annual inspection to make sure the pipe is still good. We've been through a few trades since buying our house (where we've just had people not show up, or just not respond when we try to get them to come do additional jobs later). We've used both Jetset Plumbing and now Jetset Electrical and both teams are fantastic and reliable.
