Plumbing In North Dallas Tx: 4 Water Leaks That Mean Trouble
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you’re a homeowner, then you know that you can have electrical, plumbing and structural problems that are easy fixes. But you also know that there are some problems you live in fear of, like the kind that are going to cost a lot of money to fix or the kind that can mean you’ll have hard-to-repair structural damage to your home. Problems with plumbing in North Dallas TX can fall under this heading because pipes are, for the most part, concealed behind walls and under slabs and are hard to get to.

One of the first signs that you may have a major plumbing problem is a water leak. Leaks aren’t always an indicator of a significant problem with your plumbing in North Dallas TX; but any water leak, big or small, should be addressed immediately. These four types of leaks mean you need to call a plumber soon:

1 – Water leaking from the ceiling is always a bad thing, no matter what the cause. You may have water leaking out of your ceiling because your roof is compromised or it may be a broken water pipe. A leaking roof can mean an expensive repair to the roof and even replacement of wet ceiling sheetrock. If your pipes are leaking and you have a single-story home, the pipe could be in your attic and not be easily reached for repair. If you have a multi-story home, pipes from upstairs toilets, bathtubs and showers can leak onto ceilings below. You’ll need to hire a plumber to find the leak and repair it, which can be time-consuming; and you may also have to have wet sheetrock on walls and ceilings replaced.

2 – Water leaking through a crack in your slab is a serious issue that requires the help of a skilled plumber. If you have a wet spot on your floor or carpet that doesn’t seem to go away even after you dry it, then you’ve got a leak from a water line or a sewer line. Fixing the problem can mean digging up your yard or digging through your concrete slab to get to the leaking pipe. Sometimes, plumbers can reroute water through your attic to bypass the broken pipe but this is still a labor-intensive, and somewhat expensive, job.

3 – Water heater leaks can happen for a few reasons that aren’t catastrophic, like condensation on the tank, a leaking pressure-relief valve or loose drain valves. The trouble comes when the tank itself is compromised and leaking because of age, rust or bad manufacturing. If your water heater’s tank is leaking, it’s impossible to repair and your entire water heater will have to be replaced.

4 – Leaking faucets and running toilets aren’t problems that can do structural damage to your home; but they can result in thousands of gallons of water wasted every month, which means money out of your pocket. Many homeowners choose to ignore these problems with their plumbing in North Dallas TX because they don’t want to call a plumber for such ‘minor’ issues. But the reality is that the cost of a plumber will be offset by the amount of money you save every month on your water bill.
