This step-by-step guide will help you understand why your overflow pipe is leaking and help you learn how to fix it.
An overflow pipe is an extension from a storage tank or cistern that stops the water from overflowing. It’s an essential part of a home’s water storage systems, ensuring that your house does not flood with water; thus, the pipe is sometimes extended from the rear of the house wherever the water is discharged. To check for an overflow leaking pipe, see where the water ends up collecting.
Some plumbing systems that have an overflow pipe are:
- Copper Cylinders
- Toilet Tanks
- Coldwater Feed
- Enlargement Tank
- Sinks and Baths
