Repairs & Water Leak Solutions
If the flange on your toilet is to blame for the leak, you have a couple of options:
For loose flanges, it simply needs to be tightened
For flanges that are too low, a hard plastic flange riser can be installed over the existing flange
For broken flanges, a metal repair flange will need to be installed
Depending on the type of leak that has appeared in your kitchen or bathroom, you have two main options:
If the basket strainer is leaking, the ring has to be tightened or the strainer may need to be reassembled entirely.
For slip joint leaks, the slip nut needs to be tightened.
This type of leak repair typically requires an experienced plumber, as they are leaks underneath the slab concrete of your house:
Re-piping is essential for when there are multiple leaks that require replacing the piping with brand new piping. It is heavily invasive as it requires cutting into your floors and slab.
Pipe relining involves pushing new pipelining through a broken sewer pipe to help seal up all of the places where there are leaks. This is also known as trenchless pipe repair and necessitates a professional plumber to handle this type of repair.
