Leaks and Other Plumbing Repairs

One of the most frequent calls we get for plumbing services throughout the year is leak detection and repair. With so many different leak and clog-related problems that can develop in your home, preventative measures can go a long way. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety®, there are several clues that could mean a plumbing leak, and being aware of that could help you address the concern before it ends up as expensive water damage:

 

  • A higher water bill than usual could uncover a leak.
  • Pipes that bang loudly and routinely are a sign of concern.
  • Rust stains in your sinks or rust-tinged water may be signs of big 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.
