Ask a Radiant Specialist What to Do About Your Plumbing Leak
You rely on your plumbing system for, well, everything. And one of the worst ways for that system – and your daily activities – to be disrupted is with a water leak.
When your pipes start leaking, not only are you at risk for water damage to your home, but you are also wasting money on water you’re not using. At the first sign of a water leak, it’s vital that you call the leak repair specialists at Radiant Plumbing!
Signs of a Water Leak
- An unusually high water bill
- Your water meter changes without any fixtures being turned on
- Your toilet isn’t functioning properly
- Mold growth under the carpets
- Wet or hot spots on the floor
- Sound of running water even though everything is turned off
Once you recognize these signs, what else is there to know about water leaks?
Leak Causes and Repairs
There are a number of reasons why your pipes could be leaking – broken toilet flappers, dripping faucets, water heater, burst pipes, or sewer main leak. While some are easier to remedy than others, at Radiant we have the skills and knowledge to fix both efficiently.
Once we determine where your leak is with our extensive camera equipment, it makes the repair process that much simpler. There is no guess work, and we only have to incur minimal damage to the problem area to get the pipes back to working like new.
Don’t Wait: Leaks Cause Major Damage
In many cases that we see, homeowners don’t know they have a leak because it’s hidden under slab, in the walls, or in some other remote location that’s out of sight and out of mind. This is why at Radiant we really push for you to be as aware as possible of the water leak signs.
If left to linger, water leaks can account for up to 10,000 gallons of wasted water per home each year. Picture those one gallon jugs of water you can buy at the store – and then imagine 9,999 more. That’s a pretty significant amount of water – and money – that you can never get back.
But even more than the money, water that continues to leak will cause significant damage to your home. Some may be minor – some ruined furniture or carpeting – but in some cases it can go so far as to affect the structure of your home.
Don’t waste money or the structural integrity of your home because of a water leak you didn’t know you had. Just call the leak detection and repair experts at Radiant Plumbing today!
