Leaks and Other Plumbing Repairs

One of the most common calls we receive for plumbing services in Covington during the year is leak detection and repair. With so many different leak and clog-related problems that can happen in your home, prevention goes a long way. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety®, there are several clues that might mean a plumbing leak, and being conscious of that could help you address the problem before it causes expensive water damage: 

  • A higher water bill than typical could mean a leak.
  • Pipes that bang loudly and consistently are a sign of issues.
  • Rust stains in your sinks or rust-tinged water can be signs of big problems.
  • Moisture on your floors or in your walls can point to a plumbing leak.
  • Signs of wet soil erosion near your home’s foundation could mean you have a leak.
