Water Meter Repairs
Do you struggle to turn off the water meter in plumbing emergencies? Does it leak constantly? Have you hit the water meter accidentally with a lawnmower or a vehicle? The water meter shut-off valve needs to be in good condition for it to function correctly. The tap washers can wear down, and its spindles can also seize up without warning.
The repair or replacement a water meter’s shut off valve has to be handled by a licensed Plumber Sydney. There is a significant amount of pressure in this system, and the job needs to be conducted delicately and accurately.
In most cases, a meter tap replacement requires the mains from the street to be frozen with liquid nitrogen or shut down. We at Mr. Splash Plumbing are a leading plumbing company that offers a range of services and can handle all these jobs expertly.
As a property owner, you are responsible for the installation, maintenance, replacement, and repairs of all water fittings and pipes up to the connection to the water mains.
This includes pipes which aren’t on the property, between the mains and the meter.
If you share a joint water service on your private property, you are required to maintain that pipe. The cost of maintenance and repairs of these pipes becomes the responsibility of everyone sharing the utility on that property.
