Possible CausesLeaking bathroom sink pipes

When it comes to leaks, there are a few different types you may discover in your home. We address each leak differently, depending on where it is and what caused it. In the wintertime, for instance, homeowners are more prone to experience leaks associated with frozen pipes. These must be addressed quickly to avoid as much damage as possible, and homeowners should immediately turn off their water once the problem is discovered.

Avoid further damage to your pipes and home by staying ahead of frozen pipes. Water expands as it freezes so it is best to be aware before a freeze. Do your best to avoid this issue by investing in proper insulation and by draining all outdoor water sources before cold temperatures set back in.

Other causes of leaks can range from clogs to broken seals to corrosion and more. Many times the solution is as simple as switching out an old, damaged part for a new one, while other times there may be a bigger problem to address, like tree roots growing into the pipe. No matter the issue, we are equipped to help you resolve it.

Diagnosing A Higher Than Normal Water Bill

It happens more than you may think. A homeowner receives their water bill in the mail, expecting nothing out of the ordinary, only to find that they owe a lot more than usual.  Has this happened to you? Then you know that sinking feeling of wondering what could have caused your bill to soar so high. There are many reasons why this may have occurred. Follow these guidelines to figure out the issue. Afterwards, call us in to fix it. Our licensed professionals can set you up right!

Running Toilets

First off, check your toilets. Is the water is running continuously? Then something isn’t right – and that is probably why your bill is so high. On top of this, it wastes a lot of water and, let’s face it – it’s just plain annoying. There are many reasons your toilet may be running. Our team is more than confident that they can find the problem and resolve it. Call us in today!

Leaky Faucets

Another cause for excess water use is a leaky faucet or hose. Check your hose bib to ensure everything looks good, then check all the faucets and shower heads in your home. A small leak can cost you gallons of water a day, and that will definitely show up on your water bill if gone unaddressed for quite some time. Your best option is to call in a plumber who can take on any repairs and get your household running normally again – depend on us today!

Burst/Leaky Pipes

If your pipes have burst, it won’t go unnoticed for long. Unfortunately, you can lose a lot of water before you realize what has happened! The good part is that we can help you out with burst pipes, and we can set you up right, so you won’t have to face this issue again any time soon. We have great options for you and can figure out what works best based on your specific situation. You’ll be back to your normal routine in no time!

When it comes to leaks in your pipes, it may take you a little longer before you notice what has happened. Again, you need to ensure your pipes are in top notch condition, so that you can gain the peace of mind you deserve. Contact us to learn more.

Other Causes

It’s also important to consider other recent events that may be causing you to use more water. Filling or topping off a swimming pool, running your sprinkler, watering a new garden, and running water to avoid frozen pipes are just some of many examples that will up your water bill. If your piping, faucets, and toilet seem fine, maybe you’ve used more water without realizing it (this usually happens in the warmer months).

At Stadler Plumbing, we’re here for you, no matter what. Work with us to get the service you deserve!
