Water leakages can be a common occurrence in residential or commercial spaces in Singapore. The leakages experienced vary from a simple water pipe leak to a complicated leaking water heater which can be rectified by a plumber. When left untreated for a long time, you could experience flooding. Let’s find out more about the common types of plumbing leaks and how to go about handling such situations.
- Leaking Faucets
This usually occurs due to a worn-out washer, which is typically installed within the tap below the handle. If you have the relevant equipment and knowledge, you can replace these with comparative ease, but do remember to close off the water supply beneath the sink at the primary shut-off valve before getting the handle out. Without any experience, what sounds like a relatively simple job can go awry. It is recommended to call up a plumbing service to have the leaky faucet looked at and repaired.
- Toilet Leaks
Toilet leaks can be caused for a number of reasons:
- Wear and tear of the wax/rubber ring between the toilet base and the drainage pipe
- The leak from the toilet water supply
- The leak from the pan collar at the base of the toilet bowl
- The leak from the supply line from the toilet tank
- The leak from a toilet bowl crack or it might be from the water supply or even condensation
Leaks in toilets can lead to many litres of water being wasted and that is just one of the things you didn’t know about toilet leaks. Even tiny leaks can cause wastage of water over a period of time.

- Splash leaks
Another common toilet issue are splash leaks which are known for water that escapes past a shower door or a shower curtain. It may seem like a small matter to disregard, but it can result in high damage when there is a seepage of water into the subfloor area or the shower curb. For example, when splash leaks occur, it can cause the surrounding tiles or vinyl flooring to loosen, grow mould between the grouting or the tiles may pop up.
