5 Signs You Have a Hidden Leak

Leak signs are not always obvious, but look for stains on your walls, floors, or ceiling, low water pressure, or water hissing and rattling when a fixture is off. To find hidden leaks, look for:

A Damaged Toilet or Drain

Some toilet and drain leaks are hard to detect until your water bill increases because water runs into the drain. For toilets, change the flapper or flapper chain. With faucets, replace the washer. If the problem persists, talk to a professional plumber about replacement options.

Tub or Sink Cracks

Visible cracks should never be ignored. Promptly fix small cracks DIY or contact a plumber. For larger cracks, consider a fixture upgrade.

Deteriorating Seals

Washing machines, refrigerators, and dishwashers can leak if their washer seals are worn. Replace the seals or let a plumber do it.

Pipe Corrosion

Lead or galvanized iron pipes can contaminate water and cause corrosion and cracks. Sieves can temporarily damage, but the pipes will eventually completely collapse and flood your home. Talk to a plumber about repiping with plastic or copper, and ask about federal tax credits and utility rebates to offset costs.

Tree Root Intrusion

Trees like high moisture deep underground, and the roots can infiltrate tiny pipe cracks and eventually burst them. Schedule an inspection and look for sinkholes, green patches, or decreased water pressure.

Staying local made sure that I was taken care of once again. Called on a Thursday and they had someone out by 8am on Friday. Al did a phenomenal job! I explained the issues, he gave me 4 different solution options with pricing, answered all my questions, kept everything clean and sanitary, and was so kind. Job was completed the same day and was reasonably priced. As a single female I didn't feel like I was manipulated for extra services or overpriced, I was treated with complete respect. I'll certainly use them again!

The whole process was very easy. From making the appointment online and the confirmation via text message, they sent me a photo of the plumber who was going to come to my house. The day of the appointment the plumber called me to tell me that he was on his way. Upon arrival at the house he was very professional and courteous. He explained everything to me in great detail. I recommend this company 100% and they accept all kinds of payments plus a guarantee on the job for one year.

Sam came out for the estimate and recorded everything they were going to do along with taking photos. Job was redoing feed and drain lines under the sink, and installing a new dishwasher and disposal. Called on Monday to schedule once the dishwasher was delivered, and they had us booked for the next day. Al showed up on time for appointment, completed all work quickly, leak checked, ran washer and disposal to verify correct operation, took photos to document, and packed out all the debris. Under $900 parts and labor, including new cutoff valves, new washer feed line, new sink trap, removal and reinstall of disposal and dishwasher, including supplies. Charged exactly what was provided on the job estimate. Highly recommended.

I absolutely recommend Prime Plumbing. I called them after seeing positive Google reviews. The office agent got an appointment 3 hours after I called. The technician called me 5-10 minutes before arrival. Will, the technician was super professional and thoughtful about the space. He wore the disposable shoe protectors as to not bring the outdoors inside. He was mindful not to use machinery that would harm my home. He also answered my questions with a friendly and pleasant demeanor. The problem was fixed and I was so happy. 5 stars!

Amara B.

A real person answered the phone at 4:30 pm and not a long voicemail. It was easy to schedule an appointment. Information regarding upfront consultation fee was provided during the phone call. Reminder text message was sent one day before the appointment. On the day of the appointment, an additional text message with the picture of the plumber who is coming was sent. Overall a very pleasant experience. Our plumber was knowledgeable and professional. He also made sure to put on booties which I really appreciated
