But don’t worry. Our London Ontario plumbing team uses the best industry techniques to find where your leak is coming from and fix it, so you can get your water system back up and running in no time.
If you have a leaky pipe issue, contact Triton Plumbing + Service today, before the problem gets any worse.
Household Pipe Maintenance
Have you been ignoring a leaky pipe in your home, and now it’s become a much larger issue?
Have you just discovered a leaky pipe, and want to do something about it?
Either way, we’ve got you covered.
While it’s a good idea to contact us as soon as possible, we won’t make you feel bad for waiting before you call us. We’ll just help you.
Here at Triton Plumbing, our qualified technicians are no strangers to leaky pipes. In fact, this is a common plumbing issue we’re happy to help with.
But these minor issues can sometimes lead to disaster when a leaky pipe ends up bursting and flooding your basement, or that insidious drip drip drip continues for months without your noticing, leading to some major water damage, mold, and other nasty stuff.
Don’t worry. Just call Triton Plumbing + Service. We’ve got your back.
What Causes Leaky Pipes?
There are a few different reasons why your pipes may end up leaking.
In some cases, it’s corrosion from the inside due to some sort of substance that isn’t properly flushed. This can slowly eat away at a pipe over time, causing damage gradually until it eats its way through your pipe and causing a leak.
It may also be a result of the gaskets holding your pipes together having been worn away, which causes a leak around the point where your pipes connect with one another.
But whatever causes your leaky pipes, we can help.
Contact Triton Plumbing + Service to get your leaky pipes fixed.
Why Fix A Leaky Pipe?
If you want your home plumbing to run smoothly, you should fix your leaky pipes. But if you need more reason than that, here it is.
When your pipes leak, they cost you money. After all, water is flowing through them, dripping away and increasing your bill, so you should take care of it as soon as possible.
But beyond that, a leaky pipe can cause a lot of damage in your home as well. While it’s true that a single drip of water won’t damage anything, a continuous drip for days, weeks, months, or even years on end can cause an incredible amount of damage. In fact, in the worst cases, a tiny leak in a pipe can actually cause so much damage your home needs to be condemned.
Hidden Water Leaks
A leaky pipe isn’t just inconvenient. It can be a serious risk to your property, whether at home or in a commercial building.
And what’s more, it isn’t always obvious. Not like a clogged toilet or leaky faucet. These plumbing issues are in-your-face. You can’t help but notice them.
But your pipes may be leaking behind the wall or in the floor. And if that’s the case, you have a big issue on your hands.
Not only can you end up with damage to your drywall or flooring, if left long enough it can actually cause the structural elements of your house to start to rot. And if that happens, you’ll have a much larger problem than anything a plumber can solve.
Fortunately, we can help you long before it gets to that point.
How To Tell If You Have A Hidden Water Leak
While water leaks often happen out of sight, there are still some signs that you have issues.
One of them may be a flooded basement or water dripping from the ceiling. If this is the case, it means you have a burst pipe. You don’t need us to tell you that’s a problem – just call Triton Plumbing right away and we’ll be over to help.
But just because your basement hasn’t yet become a swimming pool doesn’t mean you’re in the clear. In fact, smaller leaks can be worse. Because they’re so frequently missed, the damage they cause can build up and end up causing far more long-term damage.
Here are some common warning signs that you may have a hidden pipe leak in your house:
- A moldy/musty smells with no visible source
- Discoloured patches on the walls or ceiling
- Decreased water pressure in your toilet or faucets
- Damp spots on the floor or carpet
- Unexpected increases in your water bill
- Wallpaper peeling or bubbling
