We’re your trusted water leak repair service. Water Leaks come in all shapes and sizes. Some need emergency plumbing services, others pop up over time. Either way, it’s always good to know the signs. We know one thing for sure the leaks need prompt attention! Even the smallest water leak can cause severe damage over time. Let's address some common pipe leaks.
Drain leaks happen when small amounts of water seep out around the drain where its connected to the tub or shower. Plastic and fiberglass tubs and showers tend to flex when standing on them. The pressure can lead to the seal breaking around the drain. It only takes the slightest opening to cause damage. The signs are loose flooring around your tub or water stains on your ceiling below.
Toilet Leaks happen when the flange and wax ring meets the waste pipe. Water will seep out around the base of the toilet. Some of the signs of a toilet leak are damaged flooring around the commode and stains on your ceiling below. Something to keep in mind, if your toilet moves, even slightly, it will break the wax ring seal between the toilet and flange.
Sink leaks can take place at any plumbing joint. You’ll usually discover a sink leak when you see moisture under your kitchen sink or vanity in your bathroom. If it has been occurring for some time, you may even see signs of mold. Examine underneath your cabinet to check for any signs of swollen particle board.
These types of leaks may not show a significant change to your water usage but over time can add up.
One Drop Per Second Can Lose 3000 Gallons of Water Per Year
WaterSense® is an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program designed to conserve water. According to their research, 10% of all homes in the USA have leaks that waste 90 gallons of water per day. A hole that drips at a rate of one drop per second can lose 3000 gallons of water per year, not to mention, the damage it will cause if it occurs in your home.

What About a Major Pipe Leak?
Detecting small leaks can be a challenge. A burst pipe will be apparent. Let's hope you’re at home when this happens. The first thing you want to do is turn off the main water line to the house. Then call Big B's Plumbing Company about your emergency Water leak repair. Frozen water can cause pipes to burst. Though this is not common in California, there are other factors such as poorly installed pipes.

How Can I Locate A Leak Myself?
My water bill went up for no apparent reason. We have no visual signs of a leak. What can we do? Let’s take a few steps to locate the leak in your home. Leaks can be hard to find and occur in many different hidden places.
1. Turn off any water being used in your home.
2. Go to your water meter, it’s usually in the front yard.
3. Look carefully at the leak indicator; it is either a triangularly shaped dial or small silver wheel.
4. You’ll know you have a leak if the dials are moving.
Another option after your water is turned off;
1. Have pen and paper handy, take a meter reading and write it down.
2. Wait an hour and take another water meter reading. If your meter reading goes up, chances are you have a leak.
3. Once you know you have a leak, turn off the main irrigation shut-off valve. This will be located in the front yard, garage, or near your outdoor faucet.
4. Once everything is shut off, and NO water is being used, recheck your water meter. If there is no movement in your meter reading, then your leak is coming from your outside irrigation.
