Drain Leaks and Repairs
Leaky PVC pipe or leaking pipes underneath your bathroom or kitchen sink? These leaks are often easy to fix with a simple tightening of the pipe joint. If this doesn’t stop the leak, then the entire section of the pipe may need to be replaced.
A broken drain pipe is often overlooked as the source of a leak. While a drain pipe replacement or replacing drain pipes is often the first thing that comes to mind whenever we encounter PVC pipes that are leaking or another drain pipe problem, there are many other potential sources of the leak.
- Checking for Toilet Leaks: Toilets can be a big source of water leaks in your home. If you have a leaky toilet, it is important to find and fix the leak as soon as possible.
- Sewer Pipe: Broken sewer pipe or sewer line can also be a sources of water leaks. If you have a sewer lines or sewer pipes that are leaking, it is important to call a professional plumber to have a sewer line repairs. This is critical as DIY drain repair often causes the damaged drain pipe to collapse, which can lead to a much larger and more expensive repair.
- Drain line breakage due to tree roots: Even cast iron drain pipes are no match for the mighty tree root. Cast iron pipes and drains can be broken by tree roots that have made their way into the sewer line or sink drain pipe causing pipe bursting.
If you suspect your sewage system or plumbing system is the source of a leak, please call us for a professional evaluation and to schedule an appointment for sewer repair.
