When you’re looking for a plumber here are a few things to consider to make sure you get the right person for the job:
Most residential water leaks happen in the kitchen, bathroom or basement. It may be easy to spot a dripping tap or leaking dishwasher, but leaks that happen behind your walls or underground may go unnoticed and cause major damage, including a build-up of mold or mildew.
Here’s what to look for if you suspect a problem:
From your shower to your kitchen sink, your home’s plumbing fixtures experience significant wear and tear and may deteriorate over time, leading to leaks that could add up to hundreds of litres of wasted water each year.
It’s hard to miss a dripping tap, but did you know that a leaky faucet can sometimes leak down handles to hoses or pipes? That’s why it’s important to also check under your sinks for dampness or standing water.
Discolouration around your fixtures, sinks or tiles may also indicate a water leak. Don’t forget to check your bathtub or shower, where even a minor leak could indicate a larger issue behind the tiles.
Any homeowner who has experienced a leaky dishwasher or refrigerator knows it can be difficult to pinpoint the problem. With hoses and drains, these appliances could quickly cause damage to floors and cabinetry.
If your dishwasher is leaking, you may notice discolouration or dripping from the hose that is attached to your drain or standing water on the floor. If you have a leak from your refrigerator, you may see standing water on your floor. Call a professional plumber right away to identify and repair the problem.
Damp or wet floors, a wet spot on your ceiling or walls, or an abnormally high water bill could all be signs that you’ve got a leaky pipe. you’ll need a plumbing expert to properly fix the problem by replacing the pipe or fittings.
Water leaks don’t just happen inside your home. Outdoor faucets and pipes can also leak, leading to water seeping into your basement. If you notice unexplained damp spots in your basement, you’ll need the help of a professional plumbing service to correctly diagnose and repair the problem.
Over time, water splashing out of your shower or bathtub can cause serious damage to your bathroom floor and subfloor and can even lead to mold and mildew problems. If your shower has sliding doors, make sure they overlap properly with the inner door closest to the faucet. Replace any old caulk along the door frame and around your tub. And if you use a shower curtain, make sure to close it completely.
The best way to minimize the cost, damage and inconvenience of a water leak is to detect and fix small leaks before they become big ones. Here are a few tips to help you identify a potential water leak, so you can get it repaired quickly:
