Water Leak Repair in Greenville, SC
Before You Have It Up To Here With It All, Go Ahead And Give Ken's A Call.
Water is one of the most destructive forces in the indoor territory. Year after year we see damage from floods and storms up and down the coast, destroying homes of all kinds. While living in Upstate SC makes horrific flood damage pretty non-existent, it doesn't mean you won't experience a water leak that can ultimately flood your home or commercial business. Not only can a leak cause damage to your floors, walls, and any valuable items you have, but it leads to the growth and spreading of mold and mildew. If you suspect for one second you have a leak from a pipe or plumbing fixture, call Ken's immediately, as the water you're seeing has a good chance of being unsanitary, causing health concerns, too. Our trained technicians have been repairing water leaks for over two decades, meaning we know what to do should a line break in your kitchen, bathroom, basement, or exterior plumbing.
Common Water Leaks:
Bathroom Leak: Water supply lines in toilets, showers, tubs, and sinks are typically located behind walls, under floors, and in the ground.
Kitchen Leak: Sink leaks don't sound like a huge deal, but can waste up to 20,000 gallons of water in your home. These are the same drips that skyrocket your utility bill, too. If you see a leaky faucet, don't just shrug it off.
Outdoor Leak: Damaged sewer lines have the ability to leak all that sewage throughout your yard and back up into your home, causing health hazards to your home, your family, and your pets. They have also been known to damage the fresh water supply, so even showering and washing hands, much less drinking, is dangerous.
How Do I Detect A Hidden Leak?
Like we suggested above, some leaks are hidden, which means it can go unknown for years. If you want to check out your home just to play the safe side, here are a few simple steps to follow:
- Shut off all appliances that use the water line.
- Check your water meter and record the number.
- Wait at least 3-5 hours and don't use any water in your home. If you have kids, it may be best to try this when they're at school or asleep.
- Check your water meter again and if the number increased, you have a water leak.
If this fits your current situation, give us a call today. We have located hidden leaks for years and been able to fix the problem in no time.
