What Causes A Leak?

Once you see or suspect a leak, it is important to inspect these areas right away. Leaks occur when pipes and plumbing parts become worn, damaged, cracked, and eroded.

  • Sprinkler Systems
  • Faucets
  • Toilets
  • Water Supply Lines
  • Pools and Fountains
  • Evaporative coolers/humidifiers
