Leakage in Water Plumbing
You are probably reading this because you have already found something wrong with your water lines.
Do you want to see if your water bill is significantly higher than it was last month?
Perhaps you have a patch of drywall that was wet or formerly wet?
Leaky pipes can suddenly burst and cause a huge mess. This could also result in serious damage to your possessions, flooring and walls. Sometimes you’ll get a warning. Check the water pressure, see if there is visible damage to your walls, and/or check your water bill.
What can you do?
If there is any visible damage to your home’s structures, you can often trace the source of the leak to the source.
Sometimes the damage doesn’t stop there. However, there are times when there isn’t any visible damage (such as reduced water pressure or higher utility bills). That’s where our leak detection service comes in.
Our licensed plumbers use high-tech equipment, years of experience and training to find the source of the problem.
There are many types of leaks in your water lines. The most common are: Leaks in the joints- Leaks at center of pipes
If it’s a small leak, such as behind your tap or in your washing machine’s washer, you may be able to replace it yourself.
A licensed plumber will need to solder the fitting if it is a concerted one that has been welded.
You could have a variety of reasons why your joint is leaking.
Water lines that leak throughout their length can be caused by either old age or extreme weather conditions (pipes freezing/unfreezing). This is a serious problem in many cases.
It is important to recognize that a leaking water heater can be a serious problem.
