Find the leak, stop the leak.
Not every leak is kind enough to drip right into the drain. Sometimes, the leak is lost in the “miles” of pipes within your walls, flooring or yard. That can be good or bad, depending on how you look at it. If you like the idea of living in a swamp with mildew and swiftly diminishing home value, then a leak is a good thing.
At Al’s, we think leaks are a bad thing. That’s why we use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to find pesky plumbing leaks in slabs, walls, yards, flooring and everywhere else they are likely to live. We’re not shy about it either. Stick around and we’ll talk you through, step-by-step, the process we use to detect leaks. Then we’ll outline a plan of repair so that you can be confident the leak will do better than dry up; it’ll disappear.
Drop the drip.
Sometimes, a homeowner is pretty sure they have a leak, but they’re not sure where it’s starting, or whether it’s an incoming or outgoing pipe. Maybe you’ve seen water stains, the water itself or wood rot. The sooner you call us, the better. If you’ve discovered a leak after cold weather if could be a cracked pipe from outside freezing temperatures. We’ll fix that broken pipe in a jiffy.
What are some other signs to detect leaks?
- Water bills that seem unusually high.
- Sewer backup problems that become chronic.
- Running toilets and dripping faucets.
- Running water sounds when nothing is in use.
- Spongy, soft, or discolored walls.
- Musty odors from floors, walls near drains, or sewers.
