Leaks and Other Plumbing Repairs
One of the most received calls we take for plumbing services in Calgary year round is leak detection and repair. With such a variety of different leak and clog-related concerns that can develop in your home, preventative maintenance can go a long way. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety®, there are several clues that may mean a plumbing leak, and being congnizent of that could help you handle the problem before it causes costly water damage:
- A higher water bill than normal could indicate a leak.
- Pipes that bang loudly and routinely are a sign of issues.
- Rust stains in your sinks or rust-tinged water may be signs of larger problems.
- Moisture on your floors or in your walls could point to a plumbing leak.
- Signs of wet soil erosion near your home’s foundation could mean you have a leak.
