Additionally:

  • When leaks are not repaired immediately, over time the water that drips out of pipes and fixtures will start to erode the pipes, resulting in larger leaks.
  • Most leaks are not obvious and will stay hidden for longer than you think.
  • The most common types of leaks are those that come from dripping faucets, leaky shower heads and worn toilet flappers.
