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 the Atlanta area 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.
