Leaking Toilets, Faucets & Pipes
A leak can be annoying with the constant running or dripping. That continual water flow can lead to high water bills--and cause pipe or fixture corrosion over time. When you notice water dripping from your faucet in the kitchen or bathroom sink, bathtub, laundry room or elsewhere in your home, it's time call on Mr. Rooter Plumbing. You'll get fast, friendly and skilled professional plumbing services every time.
Signs of a water faucet leak:
- Drips: In often-used rooms of your home, you’d likely see or hear a water faucet leak, but it pays to check now and then. Give special attention to rooms where you don’t go as often or where it’s normally rather noisy.
- Rust or water puddles: These can show up at the base of your faucets and around drains in sinks, tubs or showers if you have leaks.
- Higher water bill: If your water bill seems to be going up for no apparent reason, don’t assume it’s just inflation. Take it as a reminder to check around the house for signs of leaks.
- Squeaky faucets: Faucets that make noise when you turn the taps off and on—and are difficult to turn off completely.
- Mold or rotten food smell: You may smell the effects of a leak before you see or hear anything.
Signs of a leaking toilet:
- Noises: If you hear bubbling noises or groaning sounds coming from pipes behind or beneath the toilet, chances are your house isn’t haunted. You may have a plumbing leak.
- Mysterious water on the bathroom floor: It could be a small amount well away from the bowl or right where the toilet meets the floor or wall. Small amounts of water from leaky toilets can run down the grooves between floor tiles or get soaked up by a rug. You can miss the early stages of a plumbing problem this way.
- Uneven floor or tile: Homeowners sometimes notice a bump in the floor or tiles coming up around the toilet—only to find a slow leak has been happening.
- Moldy or sewer gas smells in the bathroom.
