When you get your water bill each month, you may take a quick glance at it and then pay it online or write a check and put it in the mail. However, if you notice that your bill is going up each month and you know that your family isn’t using that much more water, you want to know what the cause is. Running toilets, dripping faucets, and other factors can lead to a higher water bill, but one of the main culprits could be a hidden leak behind your wall or under your floors. At Gladiator Repipe, we can provide professional leak detection and put a stop to wasted water in your home.
Checking for Leaks
If a pipe has been leaking for some time, chances are there will be visible damage on your walls, ceilings, or floors. If the leak is new, you may have to listen for running or dripping water when all appliances and faucets are turned off. It’s important to catch a leak as soon as possible, so if you feel there’s a problem lurking in your pipes, please give us a call right away.
In the past, a plumber would have to physically remove drywall or dig under your house to find the source of a troublesome leak. This would require replacing sod or drywall once the leak was fixed, and that could cause an inconvenience for the homeowner, not to mention a higher repair cost. Modern technology now allows us to pinpoint a leak without having to drastically disrupt your home. Once it’s located, we can get to work on repairing the pipe or replacing it.
A leak in your plumbing is never a good thing, and if you’re seeing higher water bills each month or you’ve noticed visible water damage in your home, contact Gladiator in San Jose right away.
