It’s usually not too difficult to see signs that your water line might need some repair. You just need to know what to look for.
- Pooling Water
If you come home and find pooling water on the floor, something has definitely gone wrong. Florida is the fourth worst state in the nation for hard water, that hard water and the chemicals in the water eats up copper pipes. We can put softeners and filters in to combat that.
- Loss of Water Pressure
We find loss of pressure in old homes with galvanized pipes. They corrode from the inside out and become very small. You end up with rusty water and lower water pressure.
- High Water Bill
If you have a slab leak, it will start very small. It could go on for two or three months, and you might not notice it until the water bill spikes. At that point, the leak has been going on for a while.
