Water leaks are quite common in homes, but it is something no one wants to deal with. If the leak is small enough, people often ignore them. They may think it’s no big deal, or they may be worried about what they will find if they investigate further. Campbell’s Quality Plumbing would like to share with you some common reasons for water leaks in the home. If you have a problem, we also provide leaky pipe repair in Gold Bar.
Is Something Clogged?
One of the most common causes of water leaks is a clog if left unattended. A clog and enough pressure within the pipe cause it to burst. Repairing that clog is much less expensive and repairing a cracked pipe.
Hot Water Heaters
Most hot water tanks last approximately 10 to 12 years. Sometimes you can tell in your water heater is on the blitz because of things like a lack of hot water in your shower. The best thing to do is be proactive and have it repaired or replaced. But sometimes, you wake up to a puddle in your basement. That is when you need professional assistance.
Toilets & Bathtubs
Showers and bathtubs are designed with seals that keep the water moving down the drain. Over time, a seal can fail. If unnoticed, it can create a leak that can do hidden damage. Toilets have seals also -, and these types of leaks can go undetected for a long time because of their location.
