Water Leak & Pipe Repair in Louisville Area


Detection of Water Leaks and Pipe Repair

Water leaks can cause a lot of problems in your home. The good news is that help is just a phone call away. Maeser can repair all your water leaks, including cracked pipes, pinhole leaks, leaking water heaters, frozen pipes, and leaking faucets.

Frozen Pipes

There are three causes of frozen pipes: inadequate insulation, sudden temperature drops, and too low thermostat settings. When temperatures dip below 32 degrees, unprotected pipes are vulnerable to freezing, especially when wind chill is added.

Here are five tips for keeping your pipes from freezing:

  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.

When you turn on your faucet and no water flows, you may have frozen water in your pipes. For safety reasons, you should call Maeser if you cannot thaw out your pipe with a hair dryer.

It is also advisable to be careful when turning on your outdoor spigots in the Spring. During the bitter cold, it is possible that your pipes were damaged and no signs were visible. Your spigots may not flow water if they have been damaged. Make sure you know where your main water cut-off valve is located.

Water Service and Water Line Leaks

You may have a leak in your water service if you notice an increase in your water bill or a decrease in water pressure. Repairs and diagnoses of water lines are available from Maeser plumbers.

Water Pipe Leaks

A visible leak in your plumbing can wreak havoc on your walls and ceilings, but pinhole leaks in copper piping can go undetected for months or even years. If a leak is left unattended for a long period of time, it can cause your home more damage. Our plumbers can make fast repairs and offer solutions for preventing future pinhole leaks.

Leaking Water Heaters

Several causes can result in water leaks in water heaters, including faulty temperature and pressure relief valves, excessive pressure, and corrosion. If you have a water heater problem, Maeser can diagnose the problem quickly and recommend the best solution.

Leaking Faucets and Shower Heads

Over 2,000 gallons of water can be wasted every year by just one leaky faucet... That's a month's worth of showers! We repair all types of faucets and showers, including ball, disk, cartridge, and compression styles.

Leaking Toilets

Up to 5,200 gallons of water can be saved each year by repairing a leaking toilet. Any toilet brand can be repaired, including Gerber, Mansfield, American Standard, Kohler, and Toto. We provide a variety of plumbing repair and replacement options, including options for water conservation.

What to Do When You Have a Water Leak

Until Maeser arrives to permanently fix the leaking pipe, you can follow a few tips to help prevent costly damage to your home.

  • Your first step should be to locate your main water valve and turn it off. You can find the main water valve inside or outside your house, in the basement or crawl space, near where the water line enters the house.
  • Next, inspect the leaking pipe and note its material. What is it made of? Copper or PVC? Observe whether the pipe or fitting is leaking and its diameter. This information can assist Maeser's service specialists in resolving your leak as quickly as possible.

Unless you are experienced in plumbing line repair, you shouldn't attempt to perform major repairs or replacements yourself. Even small mistakes can result in costly repairs.

Home gas leaks

Natural gas and propane are very dangerous substances that should not be worked with unless you are a trained professional, no matter how small the repair.


It is possible for a homeowner to experience a major problem due to pinhole leaks in copper pipes. In some cases, it is more effective to install an entirely new piping system in order to solve this plumbing problem. As part of the installation of the new piping system, the existing pipe will be removed and replaced with the new piping. It is common for old pipes to be abandoned and new pipes to be rerouted in order to reduce the destruction of the home. If you rely on a Maeser expert to handle the job, you will be guaranteed a successful outcome.

You can learn more about repiping by booking online or calling us. We are happy to explain the benefits of this process in more detail to you at Maeser.

In the event of a suspected gas leak in your home, evacuate your family immediately and call your gas company for assistance.
