Water line repairs are often detective stories that showcase an experienced plumber’s skills, knowledge, and even intuition. When you see a leak coming from the ceiling, it may be from the bathroom above, but that’s the simple answer. It might also be from a pipe across the house, with water flowing across beams and into the basement through the wall, and the only evidence you’re seeing is the small amount that traveled that far and dripped through the ceiling. That’s a job you want a professional plumber working on here in Temple Terrace, FL. If you’ve got a leak nobody can find, you could wind up with a lot of “exploratory surgery” in your walls or even your concrete slab to locate it. Meanwhile, the water could be doing damage, growing mold and mildew, and even getting into your electrical system.

There’s No Better Time to Perform a Water Line Repair
It may be tempting to wait until you gather more evidence about the potential water line leak in your walls or yard, but the more you wait, the more damage can happen. You may experience crumbling wall material, growth of mold and mildew in hidden places, and cracks in walls and ceilings where water infiltrates. Over time, the cost of the repair may be dwarfed by the price of the mitigation work done to dry out spaces between walls or above ceilings, remove mold and mildew, and repair water damaged materials.

That’s right, in many cases we don’t have to disrupt your walls, yard, or concrete in your basement to find the leak. When we do a water line repair, we use electronic listening devices and video scopes to determine where the problem is, and to inspect the damage from the inside so we can choose the best water line repair method.

Water Line Repairs On Older Homes and Outdated Plumbing
In some cases, your water line repair call may involve older pipe materials that need replacing. We’ll take care of the problem and also advise you about pipe materials such as cast iron and older plastics that may be a problem at some point. For example, corrosion in iron pipes can lead to leaks, but it can also make the interior surface rougher, leading to a greater chance of clogs in drain pipes. Of course, the presence of lead pipes is an important discovery for your family’s health, and some types of plastic piping tend to break down over time, often resulting in water line repair problems throughout your home on a regular basis. Rather than make regular visits to your place as the leaks appear, we can help you understand the problem up front and take preventive action.
