It's the Time of Year for Water/Plumbing Leaks in Orlando!

This time of year water leaks and broken plumbing pipes seem to happen more often.

It's the Time of Year for Water/Plumbing Leaks in Orlando! - Water Leak Detection Blog - Orlando, Florida | Leak Doctor - ThinkstockPhotos-73271468-2Just imagine coming home from work to find a water pipe has been leaking most of the day. Damage control is needed quickly! The joy of owning your own home quickly fades when an emergency strikes. It is even worse when you don't know what to do.

This type of situation can cause extensive damage and end up costing a ton of money, especially if you don't move quickly. Knowing a few basics about your plumbing system can prevent the disaster from flooding your entire home.

Broken Pipes and Water Leaks

In a situation like this it is vital to know where all the shut off valves are located, for the water supply lines to appliances and utilities. Before an emergency situation arises, carefully inspect the bathroom, tubs, sinks, toilets, water heater, kitchen and appliances, for shut off valves. Also locate the main shut off valve for the entire house. This way, if you have a broken pipe emergency, you can minimize the damage by turning off the water. If you're not sure where this is you can contact the Leak Doctor for help.

When water leaks are concerned, it doesn't take much to disrupt and cause chaos in the family home. Especially when you consider how many water pipes are throughout the home, sinks, toilets, bathtubs, refrigerator, hot water heater, under your home, and out in the yard.

Spotting a water leak can consist of seeing water where you shouldn't, noticing the hot water heater is always running, noticing warm spots on the floor, or a water bill that is higher than usual.

Most people living in Central Florida don't realize they have a water leak until it's too late. Water pipes don't last forever. Over time the chemicals in the water can cause pipes to rust and create pinhole leaks.  Behind every water leak, no matter how small, lurks other issues such as mold and mildew, without anyone realizing and the consequences can be devastating.

The Leak Doctor offers advanced technology, including frequency sensitive computers, specialized listening equipment, ground probes and other state-of-the-art electronic devices to detect any water leak. We have cost-effective ways to find the source of your leak and quickly fix it.
