LEAKS & REPAIRS
Few things are as damaging as a constant water leak in your home or business. You may have noticed the brown water mark on the ceiling, or noticed your water bill has increased over the preceding months. Maybe a wall in your home feels soft and damp. Plumbing leaks can cause serious damage to your home, as a result even weakening the structure of your home, should the leak continue for long enough. If you suspect you have a leak, don’t ignore it. Call our skilled experts at Elliott's Blue Collar Plumbing today.
Water leaks can be detected through several different ways. Brown marks on your ceiling indicate water is leaking down from above. Soft or damp walls indicate a serious leak behind the wall. An increase in your water bill can also be a sign of a leak. Less obvious signs of a leak include dripping or gurgling noises in your home and less water pressure in one or more faucets than is normal.
Whether clearly visible or cleverly hidden, leaking pipes lead to water damage ranging from a small stained area to major structural damage. In many cases, you can make a plumbing repair yourself, but those fixes are prone to fail sooner rather than later. Our residential and commercial plumbing experts can quickly determine if you have a plumbing leak, pinpoint the source of the leak, and then make permanent repairs.

SIGNS OF A
Do you hear or see signs of drips? A plumbing leak is probably nearby. Listen closely in frequently used rooms, and regularly check in on rooms you don’t use as much.
Rust or water puddles
These two issues can show up commonly at the base of your faucets, around drains in sinks, tubs, or showers, and on the floor below a faucet. If you notice the reddish rust color or even small puddle nearby act fast and give us a call.
Higher water bill
Unexplained spikes in your water bill might indicate a leak or some other type of plumbing problem has occurred. Check around your house for signs of a leak, and call a plumber ASAP.
Do your faucets make a squeaking noise whenever you turn the taps on or off? Are they difficult to turn off and on completely? This may be a sign of a bigger problem!
Mold or rotten food smell
Sometimes, you smell the effects of a leak before you see or hear anything. If you smell that moldy, rotten food smell you could have a plumbing leak! Get it checked out immediately.
