Water Leak Detection and Repair in Champaign

Avoid Expensive Water Leaks and Damage to Your Home, Business

Based on findings from the Alliance for Water Efficiency, an average home loses between 2,000 to nearly 20,000 gallons of water annually thanks to leaky pipes. While dripping faucets and leaky water heaters aren’t difficult to find, other leaks in the toilet flapper valves or cracked water supply lines can go undiscovered for a long time.

Small water leaks can still be costly. You’re paying for wasted water, and leaks can wreak havoc on walls, flooring and other structural elements of the property. That’s why it’s still important to find and fix leaks, no matter how small they may seem.
