A Licensed Missouri Technician can Detect and Fix Leaks
Not all leaks are created equal. Some leaks, such as a slow-running toilet or a mildly leaky faucet
, are not as serious and probably do not warrant emergency attention. On the other hand, other leaks can be much more damaging to your property and expensive if left unfixed. A water line that is leaking water—even if the water is simply leaking into your yard—can cause your monthly water bills to increase significantly.
In addition to costing you money in the form of higher water bills leaks are harmful for the planet as well. Even a small leak can easily add up: some estimates show that a small leak can waste from 2,000 to 20,000 gallons of water a year; what’s more, according to the, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the combined total of all home leaks in the United States is in the neighborhood of one trillion gallons per year. While you might think that your small leak is not a big deal, you cannot ignore the impact on the environment of leaving such a leak unfixed.
Some of the worst leaks in terms of the damage they cause to your pocketbook, your home, and the environment are those which are hidden from sight and leak a small enough amount of water that they may go undetected for years at a time. Hidden water supply lines
inside your walls and under your floors may slowly leak copious amounts of water into your home over the years; by the time these leaks are discovered significant portions of the infrastructure of your home may be ruined and rotting beyond repair. Places where a hidden leak might develop include:
- Inside your walls
- Under your floors
- In crawlspaces under your home
- Inside your cabinets
- Behind your refrigerator
- In your yard
- Behind your washing machine
- And other places.
A certified Missouri contractor
can visit your home and perform a thorough inspection of your pipes and supply lines. He or she will quickly determine whether you have any hidden leaks and, if so, where they are located. He or she will then sit down with you and go over the various options for repair, highlighting the cost of each option as well as the advantages and disadvantages thereof.
Reasons to Insist on a Certified Missouri Professional for Your Leak Detection Needs
When it comes to something such as searching for hidden leaks it may be tempting to try to cut corners and save costs by hiring the cheapest “plumber” you can find. However, this course of action almost inevitably leads to problems down the road, as many times these “plumbers” are not licensed and are not trained in the latest methods in leak detection (or other plumbing issues). The mistakes that they make and not locating a hidden leak in your home can be very costly over the long run, with the costs of repairs totaling in the tens of thousands of dollars.
