With the rising cost of utilities, Steve’s Plumbing & Heating can help you find ways to save money over the next year by tightening up your system and stopping those leaks. If there is water dripping anywhere inside or outside of your home, we’ll find it and fix it.


How do You Know that Have Leaky Pipes?

Not all plumbing leaks are easy to spot. Some of them are hidden deep down in your home’s foundation or throughout the walls. There are some signs, however, that we can look for to tell that there is an opening somewhere in the plumbing system. Some of these include:


●        A significant increase in your water bill or water meter reading

●        Traces of mold or mildew in key areas like the bathroom or the kitchen

●        The sound of water running underneath the house or through the walls

●        Discolored ceiling, walls, or floors

●        Cracks in the foundation either inside or outside the house


Where are the Leaks Coming From?

When a Steve’s Plumbing technician is called on to fix leaks, we usually find them in one of three places.


Faucets. All of the leaky faucets in your home combined can add up to anywhere from $50-$100 in wasted utility bills each year.


Toilets. The reason a toilet runs incessantly is because there is a leak in the tank. This leak allows 200-300 gallons of water to pass through the plumbing daily. That adds up to an average of $2 a week. Add another $100 to your bill annually.


Pipes. Leaky pipes can turn into a real problem. This is especially true if the leak is hidden. A leak in the system can lose up to 1,000 gallons of water daily. That equals to $1 per day. You just added another $300 to your bill in one year’s time.
