How Do I Know I Need A Water Leak Repair?

Are you wondering how you’ll be able to tell if one of your pipes or fixtures has sprung a leak? Most pipe systems are incredibly complex- which means that a leak could start almost anywhere. Thankfully, there are a few quick and efficient ways you can evaluate your home and check for leakage. Some of those include:

  • Strangely high water bills
  • Musty smells in your basement, cellar or crawl spaces
  • Stains or cracks along the foundation of your home
  • Sagging walls, ceilings or floors
  • Mold and mildew growth in odd areas
  • Consistent dripping or trickling water sounds

A water meter is also a useful tool since it can notify you if you have a leak. If you notice any of these signs or signals, consider scheduling an inspection or repair appointment with a plumbing professional.

What Triggers A Leak?

Leaks can generate from a variety of causes. Some of the most common are:

  • Worn-out rubber seals
  • Corrosion where your pipes connect with fixtures
  • Obstructions clogging your pipe system
  • Tree roots displacing your underground plumbing
  • Destructive weather
  • Badly laid pipes and backflow devices
  • Damaged pipe joints

Many of these issues are hard to find and fix by yourself. Contacting a plumbing expert is often the smartest option since licensed technicians have the education and the training to protect your home from permanent water damage. Don’t waste time trying to DIY your way through clogged pipes or broken seals — let us at Gotelli Plumbing protect your home as soon as possible.

Quick Response Time

The response from Gotelli Plumbing was excellent. The next time Tom arrived right on time and the quality of his work was outstanding. When he finished he walked me through everything he had done and I could not have been more pleased with the results. I’m so thankful to have such professionals available when need and on such short notice.

Raymond R.

Excellent Service

Tom provided excellent service. He is obviously experienced- and quickly solved the problem. Our gas had to be shut off, so we were without our stove to cook, furnace to heat and hot water. Our home is happy again!

Keith B.

Superb Service

Tom of Gotelli Plumbing provided superb service for us in replacing a very balky tub spout, and worn out toilet parts. Not only was he extremely professional and thorough but he was able to answer all my questions concerning the service. I would give 6 stars if I could.

I had a great experience with Gotelli Plumbing when we needed a leak in a pipe fixed. Tom was professional and friendly. He also got the job done faster than original estimated, so the work was less expensive than I anticipated. I will use Gotelli Plumbing again in the future.

Water heater died just in time for Thanksgiving company to arrive. Gotelli sent Joey out first thing this morning. Not only was Joey a super nice guy, he fixed our heater quickly and for $450 less than a competitors bid. Will be going to these guys for all of our plumbing needs in the future!
