A broken pipe can cause serious harm to you and your home, through flooding, gas poisoning or a gas fire. The fix required differs depending on the type of leak and type of pipe. There are several short-term solutions to patching a pipe, but often a leak in one place indicates that it is simply a matter of time before there will be leak in other places too. Where old pipes have corroded to the point of leaking a full replacement is highly likely, which can involve doing soldering and threaded fittings. This corrosion is not always visible from the outside either, as older setups with galvanized pipes will corrode from the inside out. Small amounts of water build-up around the pipe can actually occur without a leak through a condition often referred to as ‘sweating pipes’, which is actually just a buildup of condensation on the outside. We can help you solve these with waterproofing compounds and specific types of wraps.
