We can find and fix leaking pipe under stone, block, concrete foundations, basements, walls, or floors. Repairs under some of these materials may call for demolition and rebuilding if leaks are allowed to continue. Small leaks can lead to expensive repairs in a short time. If you believe you need help to fix leaking pipe under or around your home, call us at Windsor Plumbing.
There are times when we can reroute water or other lines and simply cap off existing lines that run under concrete or other hard surfaces to prevent costly repairs. Every leak is different. Windsor Plumbing will explain all the options to repair your leaking pipe.
Copper pipe leak
Pinhole leaks in copper pipes are a common problem. Pitted corrosion can eat away at the inside lining of copper plumbing and eventually wear a hole through.
Some causes of this wear:
- High chlorine levels in the water supply
- Corrosion from rusted water heaters
- Old, rusty steel water pipes
- High water pressure
- High pH levels in the water
- Other chemical factors in soil and water
With these things and more at work, over time, any weakened piece of pipe can develop a leak.
There are several methods to fix a copper pipe. If there is a single pinhole, or a few holes all in one piece of pipe, simply replace the holed pipe. If your copper plumbing is less than 20 years old, this could have been a weak piece of pipe.
When you solder two pipes together, this joint can sometimes be weak and eventually leak.This is because the joint material is weaker than the copper line. In these cases, Windsor Plumbing can quickly and easily re-solder the lines and fix the leak.
If you keep getting pinhole leaks, even in long, straight pipes, and your plumbing is over 20 years old, it’s time for a full plumbing inspection. These are signs that a major plumbing leak or breakdown could be flowing your way. Contact Windsor Plumbing right away for an inspection.
Gas pipe leak
A gas pipe leak can be very dangerous. A gas leak does not always produce an odor, depending on the type of gas. If you smell gas, or an odor of rotten eggs, you likely have a gas leak.
The best way to locate a gas leak in your home is by using soapy solution. Mix dish soap in a small amount of water and liberally coat every gas fitting with the solution. Bubbles will show the location of any leaks.
If you suspect a gas leak:
Of course, when detect any gas, by odor or soapy solution, you should immediately:
- Leave the building immediately and keep safe distance- 100 feet or more.
- Do not do anything likely to cause explosion, such as lighting a match, using an electric switch, or a telephone in the building.
- Notify other building occupants of the safety concern.
- Contact the local gas company and/or fire department and Windsor Plumbing.
Any indoor heating or cooking appliances that a safety inspector judges to be a safety hazard should be shut down as a priority. If an emergency exists, call 911 and leave the property. If an emergency does not exist, replace the unsafe fixture by using a professional service like Windsor Plumbing.
