Take 5 minutes if you see a new owner or tenant in your building and say hello, it might be worth your while.

As plumbers who service the maintenance industry we are often asked to attend site to investigate water flooding into a lot from an upper level lot.

Without being able to contact or gain access to the affected lot above that is leaking, the damages being caused can sometimes be extensive with the minutes ticking by the damages are increasing.

Should each occupant know their neighbours and the body corporate managers having updated details for each lot this can sometimes save added damages from occurring.

Limiting the time that a burst water pipe or overflowing toilet continues can be a huge benefit.

As we all know water damage is one of the major causes of insurance claims with premiums always increasing so anything that each body corporate scheme can do to limit these issues will help us all in the long term!
