How to Tell If You Have a Leak in Your Chicago Home
Some leaks are very apparent. After all, how could you miss the steady drip, drip, drip from your bathroom faucet? Other leaks develop behind the walls or even in your yard. Fortunately, it’s easy to quickly check whether you have a leak with the water meter test.
- Step outside and find the water meter on the side of your house. Write down the number on the gauge.
- Ask everyone in your home to refrain from using water for the next two hours. You may want to attach reminders to the toilets and faucets.
- When time’s up, revisit the water meter and see if the reading has changed. If so, you probably have a leak somewhere.
Types of Leaks We Repair
Your plumbing system is so complex that leaks can develop in several places. Fortunately, you can count on ABC for a wide variety of leak repair services. Here’s what we offer.
Faucet Leak Repair
A worn out washer or gasket is the most likely reason for a faucet to leak. You may be able to fix this yourself, but if a more serious problem is behind the leak, call ABC for help.
Showerhead Leak Repair
Leaky shower heads are often caused by a loose connection between the fixture and the wall pipe. Try removing the shower head and wrapping the threads with Teflon tape before tightly screwing it back into place. If the showerhead drips when not in use, contact us for a professional repair.
Toilet Leak Repair
The most common type of toilet leak is caused by a worn-out toilet flapper. This allows water to slowly drip from the tank into the bowl, resulting in occasional “phantom flushes.” If you experience this problem, purchase a replacement flapper at a hardware store and install it in place of the old one.
Toilets can also leak on the outside. Be sure to check the gaskets and fittings where the toilet meets the floor for any hidden problems.
Water Heater Leak Repair
If your water heater has a leak, the moisture could be coming from multiple places. The cold water inlet, hot water outlet, pressure relief valve, and drain valve all have the potential to develop a leak. It’s also possible for the tank to corrode and drip water onto the floor. No matter what problem you’re facing, ABC can fix it.
Pipe Leak Repair
The pipes running behind your walls and under cabinets have joints that can leak if they come loose. This can cause slow dripping that raises your bills and eventually causes water damage and mold growth. You can detect these hidden leaks with the water meter test. If you suspect you have a leaky pipe behind a wall, contact ABC right away to schedule a repair from a professional plumber!
