Solution To Central Florida Water Leaks & Broken Pipes

Broken pipes and water leaks are one of the most troublesome issues for a homeowner. If not detected and repaired in a timely manner they can lead to destructive consequences. Unfortunately, some water leaks go unnoticed until major damage has been done.

A simple test, place a couple drops of food color in the tank of the toilet, let stand 5 to 10 minutes. If the food color shows up in the bowl of the toilet, you have a leak.
