Leak Detection & Slab Leak Repair
Water leaks can be considered as one of the most common problems encountered by many households. You may have even experienced at one time or another sudden increase in your water bills because of undetected leaks.
We would like you to understand how to identify common house leaks so that we can help you avoid unnecessary expenses.
1. Leaking Toilets
You may think that detecting toilet leaks is as easy as opening the top of the tank. However, everything can look fine to the naked eye, but you continue to hear a hissing sound. This can be an indication of a very subtle leak that may be coming from any component of the toilet.
Some homeowners have resorted to the use of food coloring in the tank to check for the presence of leaks.
We would like to remind you though that when you do this, put drops of food coloring in the tank and not in the bowl. Be aware that results will not come instantaneously and you may need to wait overnight in some instances. When you see food coloring on the bathroom tiles or floor, then you have confirmed the presence of a leak.
We highly recommend giving us a call because fixing it yourself may damage other toilet components that may lead to bigger plumbing problems.
2. Hot Water Tank Leaks
Leaks on the hot water tank can not only weaken the pressure but also give you high water bills. There is also the possibility of creating other problems with the wiring as well. More on this website
One of the most common sources of leak can be found at the pressure relief valve. There are valves that are plumbed to the drain directly which means that the leaks can go undetected for significantly long periods.
Like toilet leaks, a hissing sound may be heard which can indicate problems. You should avoid trying to fix the problem yourself.
We can ensure you that with our services, possibilities like puncturing the tank or crossing wires that will result in greater damage can be avoided.
3. Hose Bib Leaks
Our experience in leak detection has revealed that many homes experience leaks traced to hose bibs. Hose bibs are the fixtures used to connect hoses like those in your garden. Leaks from these fixtures can be extremely subtle or sometimes very obvious. This means that you may have leaks that you are not aware of and it may take a while before the leak is actually detected.
You don’t have to worry because we can help you by doing regular checks on your plumbing to ensure that leaks are detected early on. This will allow for repairs to be done immediately. In turn, you will be able to save an enormous amount of money on water bills and plumbing repairs. You should never attempt to do fix-it-yourself solutions to avoid causing more problems as well as possibly injuring yourself.
We know how difficult it can be for you to identify and repair leaks. We will be more than happy to help you solve not only your leak problems but any concerns with your plumbing.
