Water leaks and the cost to repair them

Theres no doubt that water leaks can be costly. But the effects of postponing or ignoring these repairs can result in more than just a bigger water bill.

I recently repaired a water heater leak in Phelan, CA. While making the repair i wore a breathing mask to protect myself from mold that spread around the water heater. I recommended mold remediation to the homeowner. Although he was mildly concerned about the price to clean up mold and replace drywall, he was less worried about the health risks of mold.

Mold spores travel in the air and spread on surfaces

As a plumber I’ve noticed hot water leaks tend to spread mold to a greater degree than cold water leaks. I believe this has to do with steam spreading into the enclosed space and accumulating on surfaces. In any event, mold is unhealthy to come in contact with or breathe. Children and the elderly should especially be protected from this funky fungi.fast response , water , plumber , Victorville , Guaranteed Plumbing , 24 hour plumberLeaking pipe in ground, water leak

Aside from mold, water leaks cause safety hazards and structural damage. People slipping on water is rare but possible, so is falling into a sinkhole caused by a neglected leak. But a more common consequence of water leaks can be structural damage. I have seen a home’s foundation partially collapsed because of a slab leak ignored, and the inspector deemed the house unlivable.

Water leaks; priced low to high

In general, a sprinkler leak may cost under a hundred dollars. A bursted pipe in a wall may cost between a hundred and two hundred dollars, while a leak in the ground can run you a few hundred dollars (depending on where its at).

The repercussions of water leaks in the high desert go beyond your personal or business costs. The Daily Press reported that the Sheep Creek Water Company’s water supply is “dependent entirely on rainfall and snowmelt, and officials have struggled in recent drought years to meet the demands of customers.”

While i dont recommend a water saving toilet or taking shorter showers, i would suggest fixing any water leaks as soon as possible , not least because we live in the desert, but also to spare your wallet, the health and safety of others, and our local economy.

Hydro-Jet is a better option for drain cleaning

Plumber doing hydro-Jet

Hydro-Jet is not the water pressure from a hose. Hydro-Jet cleaning machines for drains use a compresser to blast water at thousands of PSI. Furthermore, the head of the jetter is designed to scale the pipes at an angle from the inside.

Hydro-Jet often results in Zero call-backs

When build-up in drains and grease have caused drain clogs I notice some customers will continue to snake the drain instead of going with the recommended Hydro-Jet. Go with Hydro-jet on our secure page to get a plumber within an hour The cost of jetting service with this company is about twice the cost of our drain cleaning with a snake. And yes, many standard drain cleanings don’t call back for the same issue. Nevertheless, if a customer has paid twice for a snake that a hydro-Jet would have solved, than the customer has already overpaid for inadequate maintenance.

The problem with a snake (steel cable) service, is that it works for a while but clogs May reappear. Therefore doing the same thing and expecting a different result is not smart. Rooter machines for grease are like putting a band-aid on a bigger problem. Notwithstanding Learn more about hydro-Jetting yourself .

Compare prices and hire the right Victorville Plumber

Not all Victorville plumbers are equal.  My name is Robert and i am a local small-business owner who also does the work myself.

When you hire a large plumbing corporation the price is definitely inflated.  For example, your money pays employees who answer phones, hold signs on the street corner while dressed in costumes, and owners who lay back and count your money while smoking cigars.

At Guaranteed Plumbing things are different, i answer the phones, perform the work and spend very little on advertising.  The result is a Victorville plumber who costs less and is trusted more than shady companies in the area.

This old shower was repaired by the same Victorville Plumber who repaired the home’s water heater.  That’s because it isn’t just pipe leaks you can get a good deal for, but also water heating, drain clogs, and swamp cooler maintenance.

Don’t forget to winterize your swamp cooler during the winter or you’ll be dealing with bursted pipes in the summer 🥶.  For more info on the importance of Winterization look at this.
