You keep an eye on your water bill every month, and if you notice a spike in the cost, you want to know why. There can be many reasons for a higher water bill, from a toilet that runs constantly to a faucet that drips or leaks, but the main cause could be a hidden leak somewhere in your plumbing. At Spartan Services in Tacoma, we can pinpoint the location of your leak, whether it’s under your house slab, behind a wall, or beneath the floor.
Signs You Have a Leak
On top of higher monthly bills, there are some other signs you can watch or listen for to discover if your plumbing has a leak. If you hear running water when no faucet or appliance is on or if there’s visible water damage on your floors or ceilings, that’s a fairly good indicator there’s a problem. When that happens, it’s important to call an experienced plumber as soon as possible.
No More Digging
In the past, a plumber would have to dig under the slab or remove drywall to find the location of the troublesome leak. However, new technology now allows us to pinpoint a leak within inches of its source. We may need to move some appliances or furniture to get close to the leak, but once our ultrasonic detector has found the source, we’ll get to work on fixing the problem. Once the leak is found, we’ll discuss the best options for repairing and repiping your plumbing.
Dealing with plumbing leaks is never fun and if left for too long, you could be paying a lot more each month, not to mention the risk of water damage increases. If you’re worried about leaks in your home, contact Spartan today and we’ll respond as quickly as possible.
