More often than not, plumbing leaks are near fixtures like faucets or sinks but every once in a while, the problem can result from the actual pipeline. There are many causes of leaks, some of them natural and others accidental. A few common cases of damage are accidentally digging on top of a buried line and busting it. Another common scenario, especially for older homes, are roots puncturing buried lines. The experts here at Streamline approach every leak the same way no matter the cause. Swift action and expert repair will stop any leaks and halt further damage.
The method for repair varies for different types of leaks. If the leak is at a joint, the solution could be as simple as tightening it. If the leak is in the middle of a line to puncture or crack, the repair might be more involved. There are clamps designed for these types of leaks known as C-clamps. They look like two oversized sections of a pipe with flat edges that are fastened together and are meant to fit over the leak to clamp it shut. There are other types of common repairs but these ones, in particular, are what we see the most. It’s vital to let a professional plumber attempt pipe repairs because once a leak is diagnosed and treated, if something goes wrong a leak can easily enlarge on accident.
