Do You Have An Undetected Leak?

If you suspect that your home may have a leak, but you are not completely sure, here are some ways to find out:

  • Check your water meter.
  • For most homeowners, the meter is located outside near your stop tap, which will turn off your water supply.
  • While reading the water meter, make sure there is no water usage inside the home.
  • Measure the water usage over a period of time and compare the differences between each measure.
  • Keep an increment of at least 20 minutes to an hour between each measure.
  • If you notice that the number is significantly different, then it is very likely that you have a leak in your home.
  • Call us for assistance immediately, and we’ll send someone right over to give you a hand!

Common Leaks

  • Most leaks are from the sink faucet or toilet.
  • Sink leaks are usually detectable and visible to most homeowners.
  • Obvious signs of leaks for a sink include a dripping faucet, puddles around the rim of the faucet, a wet floor, or a flood of water around the pipes underneath the sink cabinets.
  • To detect a leaky toilet, use food coloring drops.
    • First, you will need to remove the toilet’s tank lid.
    • Then, pour a few drops of the food coloring into the toilet’s water tank and wait for half an hour.
    • Do not flush the toilet while you are waiting.
    • Finally, if you see any of the dyed water leak out into the toilet bowl, it confirms that your toilet has a leak.
    • Other common issues include drain leaks, and bath and shower leaks.

What To Do When You Have An Emergency Leak

  • If you have a leak, you will have to find the main water valve for that specific appliance and turn it off.
  • For a sink, the valve may be located underneath the cabinet or counter.
  • A toilet’s water valve will be located underneath the toilet and against the wall.
  • In the case of a washing machine appliance, the valves will be behind the machine connected to the back wall.
  • In each situation, you will need to turn the valve clockwise to turn the water off.
  • Lastly, if you are having problems with other areas in your household, you can turn off the entire water supply for the house.

If You Have Bursted Pipes

  • First, you will have to locate the main water supply valve and turn off the water.
  • Then, find the source of the bursted pipe.
  • One way to tell if the bursted pipe is located in the walls is if the ceiling or drywall is displaying water stains.
  • Therefore, use towels to clean up any puddles, and buckets to contain any leakage.
  • As you are waiting for the plumber to arrive, you can create a temporary solution if you found the leak for the pipe.
  • Plumber’s tape and plumber’s putty are effective tools that can help enclose a pipe’s small hole or crack.
  • Be sure to let your plumber know the situation and inform them of where you located the busted pipe.
  • In the case of a bursted or broken pipe, A-1 Speedy Rooter and Plumbing, Inc. also offers repiping services.

Hired A1 Speedy Rooter & Plumbing to fix a hose bib that froze over the winter. Bernie and Simon replaced the hose bib and installed switches with a wall access panel so that I can turn off water to the hose bib and prevent the problem from happening again. They were super professional, fast, and helpful. Highly recommend; would hire again

Simon was so amazing! They were fast, same day, great price, and professional!! They cleaned up their mess and were very personable. He told me how to take care of the drain if I had any issues and even gave me recommendations on what I could do about some remodeling and people he'd worked with in the past. I'll hire him again
