Leaks and Other Plumbing Repairs
One of the most received calls we get for plumbing services in Salt Lake City year round is leak detection and repair. With so many different leak and clog-related issues that can take place in your home, preventative measures can go a long way. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety®, there are several clues that could mean a plumbing leak, and being congnizent of that could help you handle the concern before it leads to expensive water damage:
- A higher water bill than normal could uncover a leak.
- Pipes that bang loudly and constantly are a sign of trouble.
- Rust stains in your sinks or rust-tinged water could be signs of big problems.
- Moisture on your floors or in your walls can point to a plumbing leak.
- Signs of wet soil erosion near your home’s foundation can mean you have a leak.
