Leaks and Other Plumbing Repairs

One of the most frequent calls we get for plumbing services year round is leak detection and repair. With so many different leak and clog-related concerns that can happen in your home, preventative measures can go a long way. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety®, there are a variety clues that might mean a plumbing leak, and being aware of that could help you take care of the issue before it ends up as costly water damage:

 

  • A higher water bill than normal could mean a leak.
  • Pipes that bang loudly and constantly are a sign of issues.
  • Rust stains in your sinks or rust-tinged water could be signs of larger problems.
  • Moisture on your floors or in your walls may point to a plumbing leak.
  • Signs of wet soil erosion near your home’s foundation may mean you have a leak.
