Problems like water leaks are not only costly for your water bill but can also escalate into more complicated plumbing concerns. Our prompt and reliable water leak repair service is executed by an expert plumber and consists of assessing the problem and then fixing the issue using effective tools and techniques.
Through the years, we have helped thousands of customers with leaks in their plumbing. The most common types of leaks found in homes are toilet leaks, dripping faucets and fixtures, and leaking valves.
Here are the signs that you might have a leak:
It is estimated that an average household’s minor leaks can total 10,000 gallons of water wasted each year. Additionally, leaking pipes under the drywall or under the floors can lead to costly water damage and mould formation in your home. This is why it’s important to call an expert plumber the moment that you see any of the above signs of leaking.
Leaks and drips can happen at any part of your piping system or even your toilet. When left unaddressed, these water leaks will increase your water bill and potentially lead to more problems. Our licensed plumbers can effectively fix a leak of any kind and assess if there are further issues with your plumbing.
Here are the water leak repair services that we offer:
If you are seeing changes in your water pressure or a sharp increase in your water bill, these are red flags that you have a water leak. However, if you don’t physically see any leaking faucets, fixtures, or toilets, then you might be dealing with leaking pipes. These can be exposed pipes, pipes in your wall, or pipes under the floor.
Leaking pipes can be a sign of a bigger problem and can escalate into burst pipes if left unfixed. Our plumbing experts will be able to zero-in on the problematic pipe(s), no matter where it is. From there, we will present you with the most cost-effective and least invasive solutions.
Leaking faucets and fixtures need to be addressed promptly in order for your pipes to be as efficient with your water supply as possible. This problem could happen because of the age of the property and the wear and tear on the pipes and fixtures. Leaks in the basement area should be taken seriously since flooding in the basement area will damage the foundation. The sump pump will automatically pump out the water if the level reaches a certain level. Our expert plumbers will be able to assess your unique needs and make the appropriate adjustments so that your fixtures and faucets are 100% drip-free.
With a toilet leaking in your home, your water usage is greatly affected. Leaking toilets waste an average of 200 gallons of water per day – which totals to 6000 gallons wasted each month. Our plumbing experts will be able to pinpoint the cause of your leaking toilet and fix the problem for you. Sometimes, the solution does not require that the toilet be replaced. We’ll make sure to present you with the most cost-effective options and reliable solutions. Unfortunately, if you want to replace the toilet, we will be at your service from the beginning of toilet rough-in measurements to the installation of any type of toilet.

If you suspect that you have a hidden leak in your house, it is recommended that you act quickly and get in touch with an expert plumber as soon as possible. Hidden leaks could be behind your drywall or under your floors. If the leak carries on unchecked, this will cause serious water damage to your home and/or cause mould to form.
When the leaking pipe is exposed, it is a lot easier to pinpoint. However, it can also be easy to detect leaking pipes within the walls and floors IF some time has passed since the leak started. You might observe signs like warped wood, water staining on the wall or floor, wallpaper and paint peeling off the walls, and the formation of mould.
If you can’t find any clues regarding the leak, except for an increasing water bill and a decrease in water pressure, then it’s time to call in an expert plumber who can properly diagnose and solve the problem for you.
Leaking pipes can be due to damaged pipe joints, rapid temperature changes, pipe corrosion, physical impact, excess water pressure, and so on. Whatever the cause may be, it’s best to consult with a plumbing professional who can accurately diagnose the problem and give you viable solutions.
Small leaks can increase in size and eventually cause your pipe to burst. This is because the constant pressure can keep pushing the crack of the pipe until the pipe bursts.
The first thing you need to do is to contact an expert plumber to check your water pressure. Anything above 80psi can trigger or aggravate a plumbing leak. If any adjustments need to be made, your plumber will be able to help.
Another step you can take is to soften your hard water. This is to prevent mineral deposits that accumulate on the walls of the pipe and narrow its diameter, causing water pressure to increase.
You can also insulate your vulnerable pipe and take every precaution you can to avoid having frozen pipes that eventually burst because of the frozen water blockage.
Lastly, make sure to avoid clogging your drains. The constant presence of standing water can wear out the seals of the pipe’s joints, eventually causing a leak. Though drain leaks may not be as detrimental to your water bill as water supply line leakage, drain leaks are still inconvenient and unhygienic.
