Leaks are never convenient! Pipes are always under pressure as long as they’re connected to a water supply. A plumbing system is only as good as its materials and its insulation, but age gets the best of all of us. Given enough time, some leaks can occur. Galvanized pipe is often the most vulnerable, but any material can leak. You might not want to cut out and replace a section of pipe, but you should know how to stem a leak until a James Vito plumber can do the repairs needed.
Even if it is during the holidays and everything is closed. Here are some quick tips:
- Shut the main water off
- If you have sealant like plumber’s seal, or Plumbers putty. Seal the leak
Leaks have to be patched and repaired- and the sooner the better! Call James Vito Plumbing and Heating, and we can send one of our certified technicians. Our technicians will diagnose your leak and determine the issues and will provide you with a detailed cost estimate before any work is done.
