Plumbing leak repairs are a common call for a plumber. Leaks occur all around the house, with the potential to cause costly and extensive damage. This much water waste is terrible for our environment and our homes.

Common Leaks Atlanta Homes Face

Sink Basin Leaks

Sink basin leaks show up in a variety of circumstances. These often form after an incorrect sink installation, if there are missing gaskets, or missing sealant. These types of leaks show up in the drain assembly area.

It is possible to fix this yourself if you are familiar with the proper plumbing of a sink. However, if you are not familiar with this type of plumbing leak repair, call a plumber.

Visible Leaks

Visible leaks occur at the tap when the water is on. They disappear as soon as the water is turned off. These can be tricky to diagnose and repair. They are as simple as replacing a gasket or as complex as requiring a new assembly. A plumber quickly determines the problem and repairs the leak.

Hidden Leaks

Easily hidden inside the walls, it’s common for these leaks to cause a lot of damage before anyone notices. Some indicators of hidden leaks include water stains on the wall or ceiling and a moldy smell around a fixture.

Hidden leaks usually require a plumber’s repair, as they are often difficult to diagnose, find, and sometimes repair.

Pipe Bursts

Pipe bursts happen when a water supply pipe bursts and water flows quickly and abundantly. The first step in a pipe burst situation is to turn off the main water shut off and call a plumber. Damage is often significant and fast with pipe bursts.

Drip Leaks

In contrast with a pipe burst, a drip leak is a small leak from a water supply pipe. There are many potential causes of a drip leak, and they are very difficult to locate. Drip leaks are best left to the professionals.
