Springing a Spring Leak?

Sometimes, you just need to scold your plumbing.

Without going into a physics lesson, heat and cold tends to expand and contract your pipes. The different rates of this ‘elasticity’ are what cause little leaks. That’s why early detection is the key to not having an indoor pond. Start here: Faucets , Showerheads, Toilet flappers. We find these are the most common culprits, and can do the most damage too. Check these first. Then move to… Washing machines. Make sure your hose here is braided stainless steel, not the dinky rubber one that may’ve come with it! We can swap this out for you with a quick call. Sink traps. This refers to the ‘U’ shaped portion under your sinks.

Do not neglect a drip here for even a day because it is on its way to a gross and gooey display right where you don’t want it. Water Heaters. I can’t tell you the number of times we’ve found a pool of rusty water under the Water Heater. Go check yours now (at least annually thereafter) or call us out for an inspection. Outside Too! Check your hose bib connections for leaks, and irrigation heads if you have them. Also take a peek at your plumbing stacks or vents that come through your roof. A blocked vent can cause problems not suitable for this newsletter. Any questions? That’s why we’re here. Give us a call or an email, and we’ll be happy to answer or to come out to make sure your spring is as delightful as it should be!
