Spotting leak repair weak spots

A leak in waste and ventilation pipes during leak detection can uncover an unpleasant odour where traps have lost their water seal. Sometimes these types of leaking plumbing repairs can be as a result of badly designed plumbing systems that were not correctly vented. Should you find a burst water pipe or other leak in your system you should immediately switch off your main water supply and seek the assistance of a plumber. Remember that a temporary solution will most likely not solve the leak repair in the long run. Leaks should be attended to as soon as possible. If you notice your walls or floors have wet, moist or areas that have colour changing spots when you have not spilled anything it could indicate a leak. Warm areas on a floor such as concrete can also be an indication of a leak. Laws Plumbing is a cape town plumbing service offering professional solutions to our clients.
