Bathroom and Kitchen Leaks
Most high volume leaks come from toilets and are undetectable with the naked eye. We can quickly solve this problem by replacing worn or out of alignment parts. This common problem occurs when the supply tank leaks water into your toilet causing the toilet to flush all by itself.
Some leak sources may surprise you. Did you know that water escaping past your shower curtain or door may be the cause of your bathroom leak? Though minor this problem will eventually loosen your floor tiles, and damage/rot the plywood underneath.
Symptoms of this include:
- Loose tiles near your tub
- Peeling paint
- Water stains on the ceiling right below your tub/shower
Drain leaks are also a possibility. This is when the water lakes around the outside of the drain. Toilet flange leaks cause water to leak out from around the base of the toilet causing damaged flooring and the toilet to rock slightly when you push it.
Sink Rim leaks make themselves known by dampness and water stains inside the cabinets, loose plastic laminate, or a loose faucet base. Sink leaks can occur at any plumbing joint, shutoff valves, and supply line connections.
Other Sources of Leaks
Other frequent leaks tend to hid behind walls and floors. Due to their hidden location there is often several hours, days, and weeks that pass before the leak makes itself known. Common signs include water spots on ceilings, mold, mildew, bubbling paint. These leaks can lead to structural damage and other serious safety concerns.
Appliances that use water such as your water heater, dishwasher, and washing machines can sources of leaks as well.
