Leaking Faucets

When a faucet leaks, the problem can be resolved in most cases by replacing a worn out washer. The washer around a faucet is made of rubber, and the material can chip if environmental elements in the air circulate around the product. The big benefit is that the process of replacing a damaged washer is easy. In order to complete this project, simply shut off the main water supply or the valve that’s located under the leaking handle. Then, implemented proper procedure to secure the new rubber washer on the handle.

Leaking Toilets

Toilet leaks must be repaired quickly because a simple plumbing issue can lead to a high bill. The big problem is that a leaky toilet wastes over a hundred gallons of water, and many homeowners fail to resolve a toilet leak quickly because the water flows out of the pipes quietly. In order to avoid an increased water bill, you must implement inspection procedures when you think that your toilet is leaking. The easily way to detect a general leak is by pouring food coloring in the tank. After the solution is in the toilet, wait several minutes without flushing the unit. If any of the food coloring seeps through the tank to the bowl, the toilet has a leak. By replacing the flapper or the filling component, you can effectively repair the toilet.

Leaking Valves

If a flapper valve has a mechanic problem, water will leak out of a toilet. The flapper valve is the mechanism that’s found on the foundation of the tank, and this component lifts whenever someone flushes the toilet. A slow leak will occur if the housing on the flapper is slightly worn or cracked because the toilet won’t have a proper seal. As a result, water will continue to rise since the stopping mechanism won’t shut off the running water. In order to resolve this problem, you must replace the flapper. However, if you have an older toilet with vintage mechanisms, replacing the entire flush system may be the best option.

Flush Handle

Whenever someone has to jiggle the flush handle in order to stop water from running in a toilet, the flushing mechanisms are damaged or defective. Modern toilets have multiple components that operate when someone presses the flush handle, such as a flush level bar and the line that pulls the flapper into the air. If these components stick when the flusher is used, someone will detect a leak near the toilet. In most cases, this kind of leak can be repaired by adjusting the nut that keeps the mechanisms in the tank secure. When a toilet continues to leak after the nut has been adjusted, the handle needs to be replaced.

Swimming Pool


Almost everyone dreams of having their own pool. However, a variety of problems sometimes arise with a pool bowl. To prevent emergencies, you can entrust the maintenance of the pool to our company employees. So, often the owners find that the water level drops too quickly. How to make sure there is a problem and find the leak?

Useful Tips

This is really a serious problem, and financially. The fact is that the leak leads to the need to constantly maintain normal water levels, which means spending money on restoring resources. If you suspect that there is a problem, and the decrease in water level is not due to its evaporation or spraying during the operation of the pool, you should first verify this.
It is necessary to note the current water level in the pool using a marker for this. Then you just need to watch. If the water level dropped by more than 0.5 cm per day, then there really is a problem. Now you need to find the place of the leak, to subsequently eliminate it. First you need to inspect the surface of the pool and make sure that there are no cracks, holes or other defects of this kind on it.
If everything is in order with the bowl, turn off the filtration including swimming robots and observe. Wait until the water level stops dropping. Then, on the basis of this, try to determine what caused the leak. For example, if the water stopped at the skimmer level, most likely the reason is precisely in it. And if this happened near light sources, then water seeps into the slots in which these elements are installed. You can also add to some safe paint and watch where it draws the stream.
