If you are dealing with a leak in your plumbing system, there are several potential fixes, but not all fixes are right for the leak you have, for your budget, or for the current condition of your home's plumbing system. You can count on Option One Plumbing to help you choose the most economical, yet effective repair for your leak.
For PVC pipes and copper pipes that are leaking, damaged or have developed small pinhole leaks, our Leak Repair technicians may recommend replacing the damaged section of the pipe with a new pipe.
If you are having recurring leaks and problems with your plumbing system, and it is old, galvanized steel, our plumbers may recommend re-piping your plumbing system. Re-piping replaces your failing plumbing system with a new, high-quality system that will last for decades. Re-piping involves replacing your interior hot and cold water distribution system, including the main lines and branch lines. While expensive, re-piping will eliminate leaks and other issues for the long term, with a system that lasts up to 50 years.
Some leaks are minor and require replacing washers, seals or other small parts. This fix is common if you have a leaking garbage disposal, sink or toilet. Faucets in particular have many small parts that wear out over time and may cause drips or serious leaks.
If your sink is leaking, there may be several causes; our technicians may need to replace piping below the sink, such as the waste arm, P-trap or tailpiece.
Leaking toilets can often be repaired fairly easily. Our plumbers may find that the problem is a corroded overflow pipe, a faulty valve assembly, a damaged toilet flange, or a worn out flapper valve. If the problem cannot be repaired, we may recommend replacing the toilet with a new model.
Option One Plumbing offers trenchless sewer repair, which avoids costly and extensive property damage to your home by repairing or replacing your leaking or damaged sewer line from small access points at either end. There are two ways to perform trenchless sewer repair: cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP) and pipe bursting.
If your bathtub is leaking, our Leak Repair professionals will determine the actual cause of the leak; it may be a minor fix such as a worn out gasket or washer, the faucet itself may be faulty and require replacement or repair, or the problem could be old piping.
If you have a slab leak, or foundation leak, there are several repair options we can recommend. If you have a fairly new plumbing system that is in good shape, we may recommend a spot repair, which is the cheapest option; Epoxy restoration may also be used. For more extensive damage, we may recommend pipe re-routing, which involves running a new water line through your walls and ceilings, and turning off the old, leaking line. Re-piping is the most expensive option but it will eliminate all leaks throughout your home.
If you have a leaking water heater, the problem may be fixed economically by replacing or adjusting small parts in your water heater; assuming the leak is coming from an opening or port. If the leak is in the pipes coming out of the water heater, partial pipe replacement will probably be necessary. If the tank itself is leaking, your water heater will need to be replaced.
If you are dealing with a leak in your home of any kind, do not delay! Leaks can cause extensive damage to your home, particularly when they are allowed to go on for some time. Leaks can lead to mold, damaged walls and ceilings, damage to your home's foundation, property damage, pests and numerous health hazards.
