Leak Detection & Repair
Avoid Costly Water Bills with Our Skilled Plumbers
A water leak can lead to expensive utility bills and structural issues. At times you may not even be able to find the source of the leak because it could be located somewhere difficult to reach—like under the concrete slab that acts as the foundation of your home. However, jackhammering your slab in random places to locate the leak is not really an option! Fortunately, our Peterborough plumbers are experienced in locating hard-to-find leaks and are fully equipped to do the job with minimal invasion to your home and property.
How Do You Know if You Have a Leak?
Sometimes, leaks can be obvious—a dripping faucet, for example, is easy to spot. Some leaks, however, can easily go undetected. Many pipes and components of your plumbing system are hidden away, tucked behind walls or under floors. Leaks in these areas can be hard to find.
Some telltale signs you may have a leak on your property are:
- Water stains on the floors or walls
- Hearing constantly running or dripping water
- Dramatic increases in your water bill
- Continuous lower water levels in your pool
- Other evidence of water damage, such as a mildew smell
Our Peterborough plumbers are prepared to fix any leaks in your home with minimal invasion. Once we locate the leak, we will make our recommendations and discuss your options with you. Sometimes, repairing the pipe is not always the best option. When a pipe is too damaged, it may be more economical to re-pipe that part of the plumbing system. You can depend on our reliable, expert Peterborough leak detection services to help you make the decision that is right for you.
Common Causes of Leaks
A leak in any portion of your plumbing system can spell disaster. It is important to fix any leaks in a timely fashion to protect your system and avoid an even bigger problem.
Leaks are often caused by:
- Frequent switches between hot and cold water
- Clogged drains
- High water pressure in weak pipes
- Overgrown tree roots
