Scarborough Water Leak Repairs
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that 11,000 gallons of water are wasted each year from running toilets, dripping faucets and other plumbing leaks in the home. Most of these leaks are easily fixed and could save you hundreds of dollars on your water bill. A certified plumber has the knowledge and skills to troubleshoot and fix any leaks in your Scarborough home.
Your home’s water meter can be used to determine if there is a leak in your home. Check your meter, then don’t flush your toilet, run the faucet, or use any water for two hours. After this time, check the meter again. If it does not read exactly the same, you know you have a leak. Pay attention to your water bill. An unexplained increase or sudden spike in your water bill is another indication that there is a plumbing problem in your home.
While some leaks may be easy to spot, others require the expertise of a certified plumber. It is a good idea to have a plumber make routine checks on your plumbing system. Annual maintenance will ensure that any issues are found quickly before the problem gets worse.
