About Our Leak Detection & Repair Services

Having an issue? Call the pros!

When it comes to a water leak, you may not even know that you have one. One of the best ways to find out whether you do, or not, is to check your water meter and/or bill. If your usage is significantly higher than normal, you probably have a water leak. Whether you see water seeping out from behind walls or through the ceiling, or have higher than normal water bills, call in our team of plumbing experts to quickly locate and repair the damaged pipe. If there’s a significant amount of water leaking inside your house, such as from a pipe that has burst, turn off your water main immediately.

Water Leak Plumbing We Service

We repair leaks for all water inlets, drains, fixtures, and appliances, including the following:

Fixtures

Fixtures

If you have a fixture that’s leaking, such as a faucet or shower handle, this is typically caused by a rubber washer being worn down and needing to be replaced. Washers are typically found underneath the handles and this type of leak…

…repair does not require that you turn off the water to fix. If you have a faucet handle that is leaking, the good news is that this is a quick fix for our plumbing team.

When it comes to bathtubs, bidets, and showers, they can leak from the drain or water inlet pipes. Sinks can also leak from a faulty or damaged p-trap. All of which are usually minimal in property damage and minor in repairs when compared to, for example, a burst pipe.

Appliances

Appliances

Appliances with water lines, such as refrigerators and coffee makers, can have tubing damage or possibly a faulty connection – connecting pipes, where the line connects to the device, or to a valve. Washing machines and dishwashers…

…are sometimes large enough to conceal a small leak behind the unit; which is why these areas should be checked when looking for a leak source. If you find water coming out from underneath your kitchen sink, it may be the garbage disposal and/or the drainage pipes attached that are backing-up wastewater. Older water heaters can and will eventually leak too, if not properly maintained, so checking this area of your home would be a good idea as well.
Toilets

Toilets

Toilets can leak from the tank, often where the water inlet is or where it connects to the base of the toilet (the bowl). However, you may have a different situation altogether if your toilet leaks from the base, were it connects to…

…the sewer drain. If it’s a sewage drain issue, water may be seeping out when the unit is flushed. Some toilet leaks can lead to hundreds of gallons of water silently being wasted. This holds true even with minor tank and base leaks. The good news is that most leaks from toilets are fairly simple to fix and won’t take our professional plumbing team too long to make the repairs.
Flapper Valves

Flapper Valves

Flapper valve leaks, the most common type of toilet leaks, can end up wasting a significant amount of water. you’ll know that you have a flapper valve leak because your toilet will make running water sounds when…

…not in use. Flapper valves are not designed, or made, to last forever and less expensive models need to be replaced every several years. Fortunately, this is one of those types of leaks that our team can make quick work of.
Overflow Tubes Pipe

Overflow Tubes

Yet another type of toilet leak that takes place in the tank is an overflow tube leak. When the water level in your tank it’s too high, it will flow into the overflow tube. And though it prevents water leaking out of your toilet and into…

…your bathroom, it also runs up the utility bill. Water should normally sit about half an inch below the overflow tube. If you find that it is significantly closer to the top of the tube, give our team a call so we can make some quick adjustments for you.

Leak Repair

When it comes to repairing a pipe leak, it’s best to have license plumbing contractors take on the job. Our plumbers follow a standard course of action that helps to quickly identify and repair leaks; preventing any further damage to your property. When repairing pressurized water pipes, our team…

…begins by making sure the water valve main to the house is turned off. We then turn on faucets throughout the house to help drain any water that is left over in the piping system. From there, we dry the damaged pipe at allowed to air-dry before making repairs. Repair work can be as simple as applying some epoxy and connecting a rubber sealant or, if the damage is significant, it can require a section of a pipe being replaced altogether.

Wastewater leaks do not require that the home’s water main be switched off, however, appliances and fixtures that use water should not be put into use while repairs are being made. If tree roots have grown into a sewer line, this will eventually cause a clog in the system or a total failure leading to water leaking out into your yard. If a large tree is the culprit, that may require additional work to be done; such as removing the tree’s roots or rerouting the plumbing.

Fortunately, sewer line leaks typically take place in an area that is somewhat accessible with a little bit of digging. However, sewer lines do run throughout houses and are often in walls, below flooring, or running through the foundations. In these situations, repairs become significantly more difficult and they require specialized equipment to reach and fix damaged piping.

Leak Detection
Leak Detection

Your home is constructed with two types of plumbing pipes – one is designed to bring fresh water into your home for drinking and bathing, while the other is designed to take wastewater away from your home and into either the city sewer system or a septic tank. Because water coming into your house is…

…under significant pressure, it doesn’t usually take very long for a leak to be detected. Whereas on the other hand, wastewater is not pressurized; making it significantly more difficult to know whether you have a leak and where to find it.

If you see water seeping out from behind walls, through the ceiling, or pooling in your yard, you definitely have a leak. Identifying the source of these types of leeks isn’t always straightforward, especially, if you have an underground water leak; however, we won’t rest until we do!

If you are unsure of whether or not you, have a leak there are some telltale signs to look for. This includes warping or discoloration in your drywall, curling vinyl flooring or loose tiles, water stains and warping in wood flooring, wet patches on floors, water pooling underneath sinks and other fixtures, and of course, large wet patches in your lawn. For underground leak detection, look for the visual cues like big portions of your property that are always wet and evidence of water making its way from your property to the curb or street level.
