Lavatory leaks can quickly turn troublesome if left undiagnosed. Leaking water is a major cause of mold in homes and can also contribute to wood rot and wall, ceiling and floor stains. If you suspect you have a water leak in your bathroom, it’s time to call the professional plumbers at Moore’s Plumbing - Mesquite.
Common Causes of Lavatory Leaks
There are a lot of pipes and plumbing components in a lavatory or washroom. Think of all the water that flows in and out of your bathroom on a daily basis. If any one component springs a leak, you could have a water problem on your hands.
Leaking Toilet - Toilet leaks are quite common. Generally, a leaking toilet is caused by the following:
- Crack in the tank
- Leak in the supply line
- Flapper is stuck
- Faulty float causing toilet to continuously run
- Faulty Fill Valve
If you suspect your toilet is leaking, or if it continuously runs, it is time to call a plumber.
Leaking Sink - A leaking sink is also a common bathroom plumbing issue. A faucet that continues to leak or drip can be annoying and should be fixed. In addition, pipes under the seak can also leak. The sink drain can also leak. If you are unsure what is causing your lavatory leak or how to fix it, give Moore’s Plumbing - Mesquite a call. In some cases we can make a diagnosis over the phone, and we always provide complimentary estimates.
Leaking Shower/Bathtub - A shower or bathtub leak can cause major damage before you’re even aware the leak has happened. If water gets under the tiles or floors, you may end up with mold or wood rot. It’s important to ensure all your seals are properly caulked and that you regularly inspect your shower and bathtub caulks and drains.
You don’t want to mess around with suspected lavatory leaks. If you suspect you have a leak, it’s wise to have a plumber out to diagnose and repair the issue in a timely matter.
