Signs You Need Leaking Pipe Repair

Most of the signs of leaking pipes are obvious, but if you have a hidden leak, it may require some sleuthing to uncover the problem quickly. If you notice any of these signs you need leaking pipe repair, call our team of home service professionals:

  • A huge increase in water bills without an increase in usage.
  • Your water meter indicates you have a leak.
  • You find mold or mildew growth on interior or exterior walls.
  • You see signs of water damage such as wet spots on walls, soggy carpeting, water stains or brown streaks down walls, rotting wood, corroded metal, and peeling or bubbling paint, plaster, or wallpaper.
  • A musty odor.
  • Sagging walls, ceilings, or flooring.
  • The sound of running water or dripping even when the water is off.
  • Low water pressure.
  • The water sputters or trickles when coming out of a faucet.
  • Loose fittings around your tub, toilet, or sink.

Our Methods for Repairing Leaking Pipes

We use an innovative method for repairing leaking pipes. We start with a plumbing video camera inspection. The small, waterproof inspection camera is at one end of a long cable. The cable can be stretched hundreds of feet into your plumbing. At the other end of the cable is a video monitor, where we can see real-time information as the camera progresses through your pipes. We’ll look for signs of leaks, cracks, punctures, corrosion, pests and rodents, clogs, and tree root intrusions. Once we know where the leak is and what caused it, we can recommend one of our residential leaking pipe repair methods:

Pipe relining

If your pipe leak or pipe damage is minor, we can use our pipe relining technique. We insert a special, quick-hardening sleeve into the damaged pipe. As the sleeve hardens, it seals up any punctures, cracks, and leaks. It also prevents future damage from occurring.

Pipe replacement

If the leaking pipe is due to more serious damage to your pipes, we’ll need to replace them. We use a method called the Pipe Pull™ technique. We dig two small holes, or access points, at each end of the pipeline. As we thread the replacement pipe into place following the path of the existing damaged pipe, the replacement pipe bursts the old pipe and moves it out of the way. Our replacement pipes are resistant to corrosion, chemicals, pests and rodents, leaks, and tree root intrusion. With proper care and maintenance, they can last up to 100 years.

Importance of Professional Residential Leaking Pipe Repair

Repairing leaking pipes isn’t a job you should put off, and it also isn’t a good project for a DIY home improvement enthusiast. Water lines transport water at pressures up to 65 psi. If you ignore a leak, or if residential leaking pipe repair isn’t completed according to code, it can lead to a major rupture. Our experienced team of home service professionals has the expertise, tools, and equipment needed to quickly and safely repair residential leaking pipes. We can also determine the exact location, cause, and extent of the leak so that we know the most effective leaking pipe repair method.
