Water leaks can be an inconvenient, but common occurrence. Here at Gallant Plumbing, we understand the hassle of trying to locate and fix a water leak, which is why our team of skilled plumbers are always willing to lend a helping hand. Recently, we were contacted to attend a water leak in Port Melbourne. Keep reading to learn about the details of the job and how our Melbourne plumber attended to the problem.
When our plumber arrived to inspect the water leak in Port Melbourne, he immediately proceeded to locate the leak. He found that water was either getting around the rear of the box gutter sump or the associated joints. Additionally, he detected water leaking through the box gutter joint, which was running down the corrugated sole tray of the box gutter. After a proper inspection, he found that the gutter expansion joint was leaking.
To rectify this issue, our plumber removed the sealant around the gutter expansion joint, detached the rubber joint, then proceeded to reseal and re-screw it to ensure it was secure and not producing any leaks. He removed the downpipe of the eaves gutter and proceeded to seal around the flashings where water was likely to get in.
Afterwards, our Melbourne plumber filled in the parapet roof rivet holes and sealed over the top, and continued to clean out the box gutter’s sump and overflow areas. He then sealed in any susceptible areas in the box gutter sump and conducted a bucket test for any additional leaking areas. He then ended the job by advising the client to wait for the next rainfall, to test more thoroughly for any water leaks.
