How to Fix a Pipe Leak

If you have plumbing skills, you may be able to repair it yourself. The issue may be quite simple, as easy as tightening something or sealing a joint. If you’re not sure how to do basic plumbing skills or you can’t quite figure out the issue, we recommend calling us for leaking pipe repair.

Hiring a skilled plumber for leaky pipe repair is always the smart choice for the long-term health of your home plumbing system.

Many people will attempt to fix a leaky pipe themselves, saying it’s not a big deal. A leaky pipe may be your plumbing’s way of telling you that something else is wrong. A quick fix may only mask the larger issue and lead to more significant problems down the road.

When Is the Right Time for Plumbing Leak Repairs, and When Should You Go for a Replacement?

Deciding whether to repair or replace a leaky pipe depends on a number of factors. What’s the size of the leak? Where is the leak located within your plumbing system? An experienced plumber can assess the nature of your leak and walk you through your options.

Our plumbers offer specialized solutions for every part of your home plumbing system:

    • Bathroom pipe leak repair: bathrooms are notorious as an area where leaky pipes can occur. There are several opportunities for water to leak when you’ve got a toilet, sink, bathtub, and shower in the room.
    • Kitchen pipe leak repair: your kitchen is another area where you might find unwanted water leaks near a dripping faucet or leaky refrigerator.
    • Basement pipe leak repair: basement leaks sometimes go unnoticed for longer than they should. Basement leaks can damage your floors, walls, and any belongings you have stored. This can also lead to mold growth.
    • Laundry room pipe leak repair: Washing machines, utility sinks, and water lines can hide leaks, which combined with dryer exhaust, can rapidly lead to mold growth.

What are the Common Causes of Leaky Pipes?

There are a variety of reasons why pipes leak. Wear and tear happens to every plumbing system over time and it can manifest itself in a variety of ways:

  • Pipes and hoses loosening: This often happens where water is supplied to appliances.
  • Pipe joints weakening: High stress areas may weaken more quickly than others and need to be replaced before the rest of the system.
  • Large obstructions: If a large obstruction forms in your plumbing system, leaks can emerge nearby. This can also accelerate the rate of wear and tear.
  • Tree roots: Yes, tree roots. Tree roots love climbing into plumbing pipes. Over the course of months and years, they grow and push against the pipes, causing damage from within.

Tree Roots Causing Plumbing Leaks

If you’ve had tree root damage in your plumbing system, then you already know. If not, you may not be aware that tree roots are a surprisingly common cause of leaky pipes. 

If you’ve been having frequent pipe leaks and can’t figure out why, it could be a sign you’re dealing with tree roots. Our experienced plumbers can easily diagnose this issue with cutting edge scope technology.

Pipe Leak Repair FAQs

Q. What should I do if I have water coming out of my ceiling below a bathroom?

First, you should look for any fixtures that could be on and running and shut them off. If the leak appeared after a shower was run, it is often a drain line. If the leak is consistently coming down, a supply line may have a break.

We have our plumbers examine the bathroom for any visible leak. If we cannot locate any, we will open up the ceiling below to locate the leak.

Q. Is it dangerous to ignore a leaking pipe?

Yes. In general, it’s a bad idea to ignore leaking pipes. You’re risking a more serious plumbing failure, which can lead to expensive home repairs. 

Leaky pipes can also cause moisture-related problems like wood rot and floorboard warping, wallpaper and paint peeling, mildew and mold growth.

Q. Why have my water bills been getting higher for seemingly no reason?

If your water bills have been increasing and it’s not because of a rate hike or more usage, there are a few possibilities. First, check to make sure all of your fixtures are off and then look at the meter. If the meter is still running, that indicates a leak somewhere on your property. Check to see if any of your fixtures are leaking (running toilet, leak below the sink, or water in the crawlspace).

If you do not see any visible water leaking, you may have a main line water leak or hidden pipe leak. You should immediately call a trusted plumbing contractor to assess the situation.
