Leaks are More Than Just Nuisances
That drip, drip, driping your hear coming from your leaky faucet is doing more than just keeping you up at night. Leaky pipes and faucets can end up costing homeowners thousands of dollars and repairs. As your Cocoa Beach Plumber we want our customers to be well informed of what’s going on in their home, and what’s leaking through the pipes.
Here are a few routine areas you should check in your home to ensure you aren’t leaking:
Toilets – Toilets can leak from many areas. The best-case scenario with a leaky toilet is that your water bill will increase significantly because it’s constantly running. In the worse case scenario, water is leaking from the base of your toilet into the floor. This can cause severe structural damage to your home and will eventually require the professional help of more than just a plumber. Listen to the noises your toilet makes. If anything is out of the ordinary or you start to see water where water should not be, call your Cocoa Beach plumber immediately.
Faucets – Faucets are the only fixtures that tell you when they’re leaking. That drip, drip, drip in the night alerts you to something gone wrong. Over time internal parts of the faucet can ware out, or become loose, causing a leak. Fixing a leaking faucet is normally very easy and will not require the assistance of a plumber. However, if you cannot find the source of the problem, a professional will be able to.
Drains – Leaky drains are a problem many homeowners don’t discover until it’s too late. Leaky drains are usually the product of loose or old pipes, and can cost homeowners in increased utility bills as well as repairs to cabinetry, flooring, and in some cases structural support. If you suspect you have a leaky drain, call a plumber as soon as possible.
Appliances – Leaks in appliances are normally very easy to diagnose, but not so easy to find. Because you never really see the water leaking from your washer, but it is easy to troubleshoot where it’s coming from. If you’re having trouble finding the leak, call your Coca Beach plumber. Our team will be able to find and fix the leak.
