Water leaks can be sneaky–sometimes they will exist for months without you ever realizing it only to suddenly collapse your ceiling or leave a huge water stain on the wall.

Luckily, ProSolutions Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning is fully qualified to detect and repair any leaks your home may incur!

A common cause of water leaks is excess pressure caused by clogs. Be sure to get expert drain cleaning to protect your home’s plumbing.
Signs Of a Water Leak
Although we can confirm the presence of a leak in your home, you must be the one to know the beginning signs.

- Reduced water pressure
- Musty smells from an accumulation of water
- Visible mould, especially outside of bathroom or shower areas
At the first sign of trouble, be sure to call a plumber for help. Early detection can be a huge benefit for limiting water damage and lessening the severity of a plumbing repair issue.
What Causes Water Leaks?
As pipes age, they will inevitably spring a leak or two. However, the reason for the leak isn’t truly the age, it’s actually the corrosion of your plumbing. This corrosion can happen when your plumbing is not maintained by opting to have regular cleanings. In addition to this, extreme temperature changes, your foundation shifting, having high water pressure, and pesky tree roots can all be the start of small leaks in pipes.
The bad news is that you can’t control temperature changes or your foundation shifting. However, your water pressure can be adjusted easily, and tree roots can be removed by a few professional means. What is important is focusing on the aspects you can control to help reduce the risks you can’t!
Sometimes, the pipes will simply leak for a long period of time until it is noticed while other times, the pipe will break completely. Both of these options are bad news for your home as they are quite costly and can cause damage in different ways. With the help of ProSolutions Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, hopefully, you will never deal with these issues!
