Frequently Asked Questions About Plumbing Leaks


No, but all plumbing leaks should be promptly addressed. For instance, dripping faucets and running toilets can be stopped by shutting off the flow of water until a plumber can service the system. Conversely, busted underground irrigation systems, overflowing toilets, and water that’s leaking on the floor are emergencies that require prompt and immediate attention.

Pipe corrosion is a common problem, and it can be caused by a number of factors. These include chemicals in the water, the pH of the water, the O2 content of the water, and the temperature are all common causes of pipe corrosion in California. Additionally, the speed of water flow and the pressure within the pipes can expedite the rate of corrosion.

Absolutely! Many water leaks go undetected for months (or even years). By then, thousands of dollars are wasted in utility bills, and tens of thousands of dollars in property damage can occur. For this reason, it’s advisable to monitor water bills for sudden increases closely and to perform a thorough inspection of your plumbing systems every couple of years.

Plungers and drain cleaners are only effective at removing shallow clogs. Deeper clogs require snakes and other devices that can remove the clog and clear the pipe so that it doesn’t recur.
