1. What is the Best Way to Fix a Leaking Pipe?

The best way to fix a leaking pipe depends on the location and severity of the leak. Some common methods are using rubber pipe connectors, pipe clamps, epoxy compounds, or duct tape to seal the leak temporarily. However, these are not permanent solutions and may require professional assistance to repair or replace the pipe properly.

2. Can You Stop a Leaking Pipe?

Yes, you can stop a leaking pipe by shutting off the main water supply valve and draining the remaining water from the faucets. This will prevent further water damage and wastage until you can fix the leak. You can also try to seal the leak with some of the methods mentioned above, but you should always consult a plumber for a permanent fix.

3. Why Do Pipes Start to Leak?

Pipes can start to leak due to various reasons, such as corrosion, high water pressure, temperature changes, clogs, faulty installation, or physical damage. Some of these causes can be prevented by regular maintenance and inspection of your plumbing system, while others may require professional intervention.

4. What Should I Do If I Suspect a Leak?

If you suspect a leak, you should first try to locate the source of the leak by checking for visible signs, such as wet spots, stains, noises, or smells. If you can’t find the leak, you can use your water meter to detect any changes in water usage after turning off all the faucets and appliances.

5. How Can I Prevent Future Leaks?

You can prevent future leaks by taking good care of your plumbing system and avoiding some common mistakes, such as overloading your drains, using harsh chemicals, ignoring minor issues, or DIY-ing complex repairs. You should also schedule regular inspections and maintenance by a qualified plumber who can detect and fix any potential problems before they become worse.

6. How Can I Tell If I Have a Leak?

You can tell if you have a leak by looking for some of the signs mentioned above, such as wet spots, stains, noises, or smells. You can also use your water meter, water bill, or food coloring to detect any changes in water flow or consumption that indicate a leak. If you have a toilet leak, you can add a few drops of food coloring to the tank and see if it shows up in the bowl after some time.

Friendly, informative, and overall a pleasure to deal with Chris. Capital Plumbing unfortunately has a $99 show up fee, understandable, and I did not compare prices so will not attest to that but they showed up within 24 hours when a lot of others said within a week.

I used Capital Plumbing at my old residence. They were the best then and still continue to be today. I knew when I called for service for my new place I would definitely get the same service. I was right and they didn’t disappoint. The technician was excellent. The lady that answered the phone was the best customer service representative I have ever talk to. They are very lucky to have such a great representative for their company answer the phone. It all starts with the phone call. I would 100% recommend this company to everyone

(Updated from 1 to 3 stars) They eventually did the work they said they would do but:- they didn’t do the work the first time they came- I had to call them six times to get them to finally listen and come back without charging me even more- the tech complained to my wife that the job was underquoted (even though the quote was given on site after a thorough examination of our system)- I have no way of checking whether he did a good job or rushed through it because he thought we weren’t paying enoughI give 3 stars because the job was eventually completed but I had to hound them and argue to get them to do the job they originally agreed to for the price they quoted. If you want the full story, read on.I asked them to come give me a quote for a water softener and descaling - they originally told me it would be a free quote and then tried to change that to be $100 for a “service call”, which I had to argue to avoid.The tech was friendly and helpful, so I agreed to do the descaling for about $500. After maybe 45 minutes he said he couldn’t do the descaling because he didn’t know if the unit was designed to be descaled, and he admitted he didn’t really do anything for me. He charged me a reduced price but still over $250, and I didn’t think I had any choice. After he left I called the boiler manufacturer and within 10 minutes found out it should be descaled.It took two weeks of me calling over and over, speaking to different receptionists and hearing various reasons they couldn’t do it yet or couldn’t confirm a price and then they would just stop calling me back. Finally I was told I would have to pay the full original price on top of what I already paid. I said that was unacceptable because all I am asking is for them to do what they originally said they would do and I am willing to pay the difference.I was told a manager would reach out to me to discuss. Mid afternoon I called again and was told he had just stepped out but would call as soon as he got back. Finally the next morning he called back and agreed to do what I was asking, and a tech came the next week. The tech was at our house for about 1.5 hours and complained that we were underquoted but still honoured the price.

Second time I’ve used Capital Plumbing because first experience was fantastic as was my current experience. Dave is very knowledgeable and explained everything. Explained the cost process before picking up a part. Will be definitely requesting Dave when needed in the future. Thank you so much.
