Common Water Leak Issues
Detecting the origin of a water leak can be challenging. Our technicians use advanced tools like thermal imaging cameras, flood tests and pipe inspections to pinpoint the exact location of the leak and identify the cause, whether it's a burst pipe, cracked foundation or faulty valve. We find the leak source quickly so repairs can be made before damage spreads.
Leaky pipes and fixtures like faucets, showerheads and toilets can cause water wasted and damage. Our plumbers will replace worn washers, o-rings, pipes and valves to stop the leak at its source. We have experience with common leaks in kitchens, bathrooms, water heaters, exterior hose bibs and more.
Slab leaks beneath your foundation can go unnoticed for months, resulting in high water bills, flooding and foundation damage. Our technicians use advanced leak detection to find slab leaks and make repairs without tearing up your whole foundation. We offer trenchless pipe relining to fix the leak without major demolition.
If your home has extensive plumbing leaks due to aging or corroded pipes, a full repipe may be needed. Our team will repipes your home with new, durable piping that eliminates current and future leaks. We handle partial or whole-home repiping projects to completely refresh your home's plumbing.
If a leak has led to mold growth in your home, our certified mold remediation team can remove the mold and make repairs to prevent future moisture issues. We use industry best practices and advanced equipment to eliminate mold while keeping your family safe.
Frequently Asked Questions
For optimal performance, you should flush your water heater tank once a year to remove built-up sediment and minerals. Annual flushing can extend the life of your unit. Our licensed plumbers perform professional flushes to keep your water heater working efficiently.
Indications you may need water heater replacement include rusty water, frequent breakdowns, a cracked tank, loud noises, 10+ years of use, high energy bills, and slow recovery times. Our technicians can assess your current unit and advise you if replacement makes sense. We handle the entire installation process from start to finish.
Loud popping or cracking noises usually signify sediment buildup inside the tank. As the sediment hardens, it can expand and contract when heated, causing sounds. A professional flush can remove the sediment and stop noises. Our plumbers can determine if flushing is enough or if full replacement is required.
The cost to replace a water heater ranges from $500-$1500 depending on the size, fuel type, features, and labor. We provide upfront quotes so you know the exact price. We can recommend efficient models that qualify for rebates to offset some replacement costs. Contact us to learn more.
Tips to maximize your current water heater lifespan include flushing sediment annually, replacing the anode rod every 5 years, setting temperature below 120°F, inspecting valves/fittings for leaks, draining a few gallons monthly to control sediment, and calling us immediately at any sign of trouble. Preventive maintenance helps avoid costly repairs down the road.
