Repair & Detection of Water Leaks

Many problems can arise in your home when you have a water leak. Help is just a phone call away. Whether it's cracked pipes, pinhole leaks, leaking water heaters, frozen pipes, or leaky faucets, Maeser can fix it all.

Frozen Pipes

Three factors can cause frozen pipes: insufficient insulation, sudden temperature drops, and low thermostat settings. Unprotected pipes are at risk of freezing when temperatures drop below 32 degrees, especially with wind chill.

You can prevent your pipes from freezing by following these five tips:

  1. Have your pipes in attics, crawl spaces and outside walls insulated.
  2. When the weather is freezing, leave kitchen or bathroom cabinet doors open to allow the warm air to protect the pipes, if the pipes are located on an outside wall.
  3. Allow a stream of water to flow from the faucet through pipes that are vulnerable to freezing.
  4. When the temperature is below freezing, keep thermostats at the same temperature at night as during the day.
  5. Every responsible person in the household should know where the main cut-off valve is located in your home. Tag it.

A frozen pipe may prevent your faucet from flowing water. When a hair dryer won't defrost your pipe, call Maeser.

During the Spring, you should also be careful when turning on your outdoor spigots. You may not have noticed damage to your pipes during the cold winter. Having damaged spigots can cause water to stop flowing. Make sure you know where to turn off your main water supply.

Water Service and Water Line Leaks

A higher water bill or decreased water pressure may indicate a leak in your water service. Water lines can be repaired and diagnosed by our Maeser plumbers.

Water Pipe Leaks

Plumbing leaks can damage your walls and ceilings, but pinhole leaks in copper piping can go undetected for months or even years. The longer a leak goes unnoticed, the more damage your home will suffer. With our plumbers, you can have pinhole leaks repaired quickly and prevent them from happening again.

Leaking Water Heaters

A leaky water heater can be caused by faulty temperature and pressure relief valves, excessive pressure, and corrosion. Maeser can diagnose water heater problems quickly and recommend the most effective solutions.

Leaking Faucets and Shower Heads

It is estimated that over 2,000 gallons of water are wasted every year due to leaky faucets... Almost a month's worth of showers! Repairs are available for ball, disk, cartridge, and compression-style faucets and showers.

Leaking Toilets

By repairing a leaky toilet, you can save up to 5,200 gallons of water every year. All toilet brands can be repaired, including Gerber, Mansfield, American Standard, Kohler, and Toto. Our plumbing repair and replacement services include water conservation options.

What to Do When You Have a Water Leak

Follow these tips to help prevent costly damage to your home until Maeser arrives to fix the leak permanently.

Your first step should be to locate and turn off your main water valve. A main water valve can be found inside or outside your house, in the basement or crawlspace, near the entrance to the house.

Next, note the material of the leaking pipe. What is the material of the item? PVC or copper? Examine the pipe or fitting for leaks, as well as its diameter. Providing this information assists Maeser's service specialists in resolving your leak quickly.

You shouldn't attempt major plumbing line repairs or replacements unless you are experienced. A small mistake can lead to a costly repair.

Re-piping

Copper pipes with pinhole leaks can pose a serious problem for homeowners. For some plumbing problems, it may be more effective to install an entirely new piping system. During the installation of the new piping system, the existing pipe will be removed and replaced with the new pipe. To reduce the destruction of the home, old pipes are abandoned and new ones are rerouted. Maeser experts will ensure a successful outcome if they handle the job.

Call us or book online to learn more about repiping. In more detail, Maeser can explain the benefits of this process to you.

If you suspect a gas leak in your home, evacuate your family immediately and contact your gas company.
