One of the questions Silverstate plumbing receives quite often is how to detect water leaks. They can cost you a lot of money and wastewater that we can’t afford to waste. Here’s what you can do if you suspect a leak:
Toilets Are The Source Of Most Leaks
Toilets are the biggest culprits. Check the toilet for leaks. Drop a few drops of food coloring into the toilets tank and wait a few minutes. If color shows up in the bowl then there is a leak, it is usually the flapper, and it needs to be replaced. This is a task that the homeowner can usually do themselves.
Sometimes a toilet will run because of a faulty mechanism and or the chain gets lodged blocking the flapper. So this should be checked as well.
Check your home or office is faucets to makes sure they are not leaking. There are kits that can be purchased at the local big-box hardware store to repair most faucets. If you would like to update your faucet, our plumbers are on call to help with such a task.
