Expert Leak Detection & Repair

Emergency Services Available 24/7

A single leak in your home’s plumbing system will often lead to numerous plumbing problems that worsen with time. Excessive moisture can create pockets of mold and bacteria, both of which can spread throughout the entire house if not taken care of in a timely manner. This can lead to major health concerns for those living in the home. On top of that, a leak can cause wood to rot, causing costly damage.

These are just a few reasons many call Dutton Plumbing to handle their leak detection and repair in Simi Valley and the surrounding areas. Using the most modern plumbing equipment, our expert plumbers seek out and repair slab leaks, gas leaks, and water leaks in hidden areas. Furthermore, we can offer advice to prevent such leaks in the future.

Ways to Detect a Hidden Leak

You may think a leak is not that big of a deal, but it can quickly become one of the worst plumbing problems in your house. A single leak, without the knowledge of the homeowner, can develop into an expensive leak detection repair job. The best way to detect a leak is to carefully watch your water bill each month. If your bill begins to spike, you know there is a leak in the home. A replacement pipe may be required to solve the problem. Also, if you begin to notice signs of wood rot, wet patches, or mold growing, a leak may be the cause. Call in the experts at Dutton Plumbing to examine your whole system so they can find and repair the leak quickly.

Water Leak Detection & Repair

As a homeowner, the last sound you want to hear each night is the dripping of water. If this is a noise you have become accustomed to, the chances are high that you have a leak somewhere in your plumbing system. Now comes the tricky part. Without the experience of a trained professional, it can be extremely difficult to hunt down small water leaks. At Dutton Plumbing, we utilize the most recent technologies and techniques, paired with ongoing training courses for our plumbing technicians. Our plumbers are equipped to hunt down any leak in your home.

Our technicians use several repair techniques. For instance, replacing worn-down pipes is a useful, cost-effective step to remove persistent water leaks. Alternatively, for smaller leaks and less pipe damage, our technicians can promptly patch the problem. To avoid extensive damage, don’t let a leak sit for too long.

Kitchen Leak Repair

Any homeowner who has experienced a kitchen leak knows exactly how annoying the problem can be— both to find and to solve. Kitchen leaks most often occur in a faucet or the bottom of the refrigerator. No matter the location, the leak can become an irritating, expensive problem. That is why it is important to have any and all kitchen leaks repaired as quickly as possible by professionals like those at Dutton Plumbing.

Dutton Plumbing’s technicians are equipped with the latest tools and technology to handle any kitchen plumbing problems that persist in your home. When it comes to a leak, we can determine where the leak stems from and the most efficient method to repair the problem on time. You could potentially fix some kitchen leaks on your own. However, it is best to leave these jobs to the professionals with the proper tools and experience.

What Are Possible Reasons of Hidden Water Leaks?

There are numerous reasons for hidden water leaks in the home, and they all stem from faulty or worn-down plumbing systems. If you have already recognized the symptoms of a water leak in the house, the next step is to simply hunt down the problem and find the cause before the damage worsens over time. This is where Dutton Plumbing’s experienced technicians step in. We have the tools and expertise to find hidden water leaks and discover the reasons behind them. These include the rubber parts of a toilet wearing down, the bath or shower handles aging or not shutting off, or a washing machine hose breaking. Any one of these scenarios could be the primary cause of a water leak in your house, and all of the appliances are worth examining for damage or aging. Your plumbing system is a constantly working machine that needs proper care and attention.

How Can You Avoid Leaks in the Future?

When left for too long, a single leak anywhere in your home’s plumbing system can lead to costly damage throughout the household. That is why it truly pays to have water leaks repaired as promptly as possible. Thankfully, as a homeowner or business owner, you can also do several different things to avoid potential leaks in the future. For starters, check your water pressure regularly. If you are unsure of how to read the water pressure gauge, call in a professional technician to examine your system and ensure everything is running smoothly. Sometimes replacing the water pressure regulator is enough to prevent leaks on a taxed system. Alternatively, practice preventative maintenance by keeping an eye on potential problems and solving any small leaks before they become major issues. Call in the technicians at Dutton Plumbing to help with your system woes.

I Have a Small Leak, but it Isn’t Causing any Harm. Is it Okay to Ignore it?

In short, no—regardless of how small your leak may be, it’s never okay to ignore it! A single, tiny leak can wreak havoc on your entire plumbing system, and lead to numerous problems in the future. Even the smallest leak can also cause the wood in your home to rot and this is NOT cheap to repair. While it may be tempting to ignore a small leak, contact Dutton Plumbing instead at (844) 811-5449. Our leak detection experts can successfully diagnose and treat your leak in no time! We’re always happy to offer our quality plumbing & leak repair assistance.

My Water Bill Is Higher Than Normal, but There Are No Signs Of a Leak. What’s Going On?

Leaks are some of the most common causes of abnormally high water bills. If there is no sign of a leak, however, other factors may be contributing to your increasing water bill.

These factors can include:

  • Too-frequent watering of your lawn. When you water your lawn an excessive amount, this can really increase your water bill. Try conserving some of that water, instead!
  • A change in your home’s normal water routine. Have you had a lot of guests in your home recently? Or have you invested in a new swimming pool? These factors and more can affect your water bill.
  • A well-hidden leak. Just because you don’t see a leak doesn’t mean that one doesn’t exist. Some underground slab leaks and leaks in the main water line can be very difficult to detect without professional help.

What Are the Common Units of Leak Measurement?

One of the ways in which Dutton Plumbing’s plumbing experts detect leaks is by using the common units of leak measurement. In other words, standard leak detection instruments convert the pressure change measurement of leaks to certain values; all plumbing technicians use these same units of measurement. Here at Dutton Plumbing, we use our cutting-edge leak detection equipment to test for and diagnose leaks in an efficient manner. Occasionally, measurement options may vary. If you have questions about the leak measurement and detection process, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Dutton Plumbing at (844) 811-5449. We’re always happy to offer our assistance!

Before I Bring in a Leak Specialist to Find a Leak in My Home, Can I Try to Find the Problem Myself?

You can certainly try to attempt to find a leak on your own before calling a plumbing specialist. Here are some ways to do that:

  • Check your hot water tank
  • Check your toilet for potential leaks by removing the top from the tank
  • Monitor the line running from the water meter to your home
  • If you have a garden, check outdoor hoses and taps
  • Examine out your shower head

If none of these methods reveal an issue, it’s time to bring in the big guns! Contact Dutton Plumbing today. Our leak detection specialists can help you find the source of your leak in no time!
