In addition to the waste (and potential cost) of water lost through un repaired Leakage, it is also important to be aware of the potential significant risks to health and wellbeing, caused by ingress of unclean groundwater through capillary action into the clean water supply, and the potential for reverse flow of water due to the loss of essential supply pressure, leading to contaminated water being drawn into the main and compromising the clean drinking water. This is often initially detected by drop in normal water pressure, and an unpleasant taste or odour to the tap water, and should be acted upon promptly.
