Leaks are among the most common plumbing problems frequently afflicting most homeowners. Leaks can be insidious, cause water waste and even damaging the home. A leak which goes an extended period of time without identification can result in mold, mildew, or significant property damage. Parker & Sons notes; it is important to catch a leak as early as possible. Every day that passes with water slipping insidiously out will only worsen the potential consequences.
In older homes with outdated plumbing, the risk of leaks is particularly high. Corrosion and normal wear and tear gradually compromise the integrity of the pipes. What is more, once a leak begins, it will only worsen over time.
Parker & Sons plumbing professionals are well acquainted with the effect leaks can have on a home. For this reason, the receive extensive training in locating, identifying, and eliminating leaks. They have experience handling leaks of every kind, from pipe fittings that release the slightest drop, to busted plumbing that quickly floods the basement.
The Parker & Sons technicians use high-tech, precision measuring equipment to identify leaks, and points of weakness in a plumbing system. The Parker & Sons professionals believe in taking in a proactive approach to plumbing. They will want to address small problems before they have a chance to become worse. Their goal is always to restore pipes to their most flawless condition.
“Repairs should not cause more damage than the leaks themselves. Unfortunately, we see a lot of that in the work of other plumbers. They think there may be a leak somewhere in a wall, and they start ripping things out, only to discover they were wrong to begin with! We take a measured approach. We make sure we are absolutely certain about a leak’s location before we start repairs. We always keep homeowners well appraised of the situation. We inform them about every step we take, to make sure they feel like they are part of the process,” said Josh Kelly, of Parker & Sons.
