Are you experiencing trouble sleeping due to the dripping from leaks in your plumbing? Don’t let the constant dripping become part of the background noise in your home. Spot the troublesome signs of leaks before they turn into expensive repairs. Estes Services offers plumbing services covering a variety of issues, including inspecting, diagnosing and repairing leaks in your plumbing system.
The most common leak in a home is a leaky toilet, which goes unnoticed until your water bill spikes and is barely audible. Large toilet leaks are caught when the valve continuously makes a gurgling or hissing noise when the toilet isn’t in use. The average toilet is hard to diagnose, and the cause of the leak can vary from:
- Leaking supply line
- Stuck flapper
- Faulty fill valve
- Broken toilet tank
- Faulty float
- Warped flapper or
- Faulty connections
There are signs to help you determine if your toilet is leaking. If you notice any of these, call for plumber service immediately before the problem snowballs into something more serious and damages your bathroom. Signs of a leaky toilet:
- Loose or squishy flooring around the base of the toilet
- Constant running noise after flushing
- Damage to the ceiling in the room below the bathroom
- Holding the handle to allow the tank to empty when flushing
- Jiggling the handle to make it stop running or
- Visible water trickling down the sides of the toilet bowl
If you notice any of these signs, call to schedule plumber service immediately! Soft flooring under a toilet means it’s only a matter of time before the floor gives out, resulting in structural damage.
Leaky faucets occur regularly in homes across America and may seem simple enough to repair. However, each repair varies depending on the type of faucet, which is why plumber service on your faucet is the best option to fix the leak. The most basic types of faucets are:
- Ball type faucets
- Cartridge type faucets
- Compression valve faucets and
- Ceramic disc faucets
Scheduling plumbing service to repair or replace a leaky faucet is the best solution for your plumbing system. Simply replacing the leaky piece won’t guarantee the problem won’t occur again. During plumber service, your pipes leading to the leaky faucet are inspected and diagnosed for potential problems.
