Leak Detection and Leak Repair in San Diego
Leaks happen. When they do you need to take care of them immediately. The longer a leak is allowed to continue, the more money it is costing you – not only in extra water usage, but in extra damage to the surrounding building materials. In our experience, we usually get called in after the damage has already been done. This means that our leak repair service is often more than just fixing a small leak, but replacing fascia boards, cabinet bases and other wood near the leak.
We Fix Leaks of All Types
Whether you have a kitchen faucet leak, a leak in your toilet reservoir, or a poorly sealed washer hook-up, our leak repair team can get it fixed fast. We only use high-quality, name brand replacement parts, so you can be sure that your leak is fixed for good and not just quickly patched. These repairs take under an hour and pay for themselves rather quickly.
What Causes Plumbing Leaks?
- Nuts that have become loose due to the jarring pressure of water being turned on and off
- Worn out or poor-quality washers
- Ball, cartridge, and disk faucets with worn O-rings
- Worn Inlet and outlet seals (disc style faucets)
- Sediment build-up
- Worn O-Rings in cartridge style faucets
- Ball socket seal failures due to wearing
We Also Cover Gas Leak Detection
Our technicians also have the latest gas sniffing technology to help find dangerous natural gas leaks. If you catch a whiff of rotten eggs every now and again, you might want to call us for a gas leak detection.
Hidden Leak Detection and Repair
Nobody wants to wake up to a leak in their kitchen or bathroom, but there is a far more insidious type of leak that could occur in your house or business – the hidden leak. Hidden leaks happen behind your walls, in your appliances and in other areas that you seldom spend any time looking. The toilet flush valve leak is one of the most common. We use a simple dye test to determine if you have a leaking toilet – you can learn more about that and other common toilet issues on our toilet repair page.
Our technicians can detect leaks behind your walls and beneath your floorboards with our non-invasive leak detection equipment. We use state-of-the-art ultra sonic and helium gas leak detectors as well as a thermographic (infrared) sensor to find leaks beneath concrete slabs, through feet of soil, beneath your floors and in between you walls. We can pinpoint leaks quickly without having to drill invasive holes in your home or business!
Hidden leaks are a serious problem, especially if they are near structural elements of your building. Water damage accounted for the second most damage reported to business insurance providers over the past 5 years. Claims aren’t the problem, though. Retaining your insurance is. A study by the California Insurance Department found that “32% of insurance agencies refused to renew policies for people who made one or two water-loss claims in the past three years.” Not only that, but because agencies use the Comprehensive Loss Underwriting Exchange, other insurers may not want to insure you after you’ve had a few claims either. The study found that “62% of the top 13 companies refused applicants with only one or two claims in the past three years.”
