Whether it’s a shower, washing machine, or tap, pipes are an essential network for any household and business. Leaking pipes are a silent yet deadly problem that can cause a lot of trouble and stress if not fixed quickly. If left for too long, a leaking pipe can risk the entire plumbing system. This leads to high-priced repairs and skyrocketing water bills that put large holes in your wallet. Think that sounds bad? It gets worse. You will be shocked to know a burst pipe can send gallons of water flowing into your home or office. Perhaps worst of all, a gas leak can spread poisonous carbon monoxide and potentially trigger an explosion. Fortunately, they can be fixed, and the causes of their damage can be prevented. With the right tools, skills, and knowledge of your home’s blueprint, you too could do the job.
