During the detection phase, this is what typically occurs:

  • Visual inspection: Our plumbers often begin by visually inspecting plumbing fixtures, pipes, and fittings for any signs of leaks such as water stains, corrosion, or mold growth.
  • Pressure testing: Pressure testing involves pressurizing the plumbing system and monitoring for any pressure drop, which can indicate the presence of leaks.
  • Dye testing: To detect leaks in toilets or drains, plumbers may use dyes or fluorescent tracers to identify the source of leaks.


Depending on the situation, the following solutions could be utilized:

  • Piping and repiping: Once the source of the leak is identified, our plumbers will repair or replace the affected pipes, fittings, or fixtures. This may involve soldering, welding, or using compression fittings to repair leaks in pipes.
  • Seal replacement: Our plumbers will replace these components to stop the leak if the leak is due to worn-out seals or gaskets in plumbing fixtures such as faucets or toilets.
  • Valve repair or replacement: Faulty valves can also contribute to leaks in plumbing systems. We will repair or replace malfunctioning valves to prevent further leaks.
  • Drain cleaning: If clogged drains or sewer lines cause leaks, plumbers will use drain cleaning equipment such as augers or hydro-jetting to clear blockages and restore proper drainage.

In addition to repairing existing leaks, plumbers may recommend preventive measures such as installing water pressure regulators, insulating pipes to prevent freezing, or applying sealants to vulnerable areas to reduce the risk of future leaks.

After repairs are completed, plumbers will conduct follow-up tests to ensure the leaks have been effectively resolved. This may involve re-pressurizing the system and re-checking for leaks, or performing additional inspections to confirm that all necessary repairs have been made.

How Do Leaks Occur?

Leaks can originate from various sources, including:

  • Pipe corrosion: Over time, pipes can corrode due to exposure to water, chemicals, or other elements. Corrosion weakens the pipe walls, eventually leading to leaks.
  • Joint failures: Joints where pipes are connected can degrade or loosen over time, causing leaks to develop at these connection points.
  • High water pressure: Excessive water pressure can put strain on pipes, fittings, and fixtures, leading to leaks. Pressure spikes or water hammer can also cause damage and subsequent leaks.
  • Faulty fixtures: Leaks can occur at plumbing fixtures such as faucets, toilets, and showerheads due to worn-out seals, faulty valves, or damaged components.
  • Clogged drains: Blocked or clogged drains can cause water to back up in pipes, leading to increased pressure and potential leaks.
  • Root intrusion: Tree roots can infiltrate underground sewer lines, causing cracks or breaks that result in leaks.
  • Degraded seals: Seals and gaskets within plumbing fixtures and fittings can degrade over time, allowing water to escape and cause leaks.
  • External damage: Damage to plumbing systems from external sources such as construction work, accidental impact, or natural disasters can also result in leaks.
