Our business at A-List Plumbing is to help you fulfill your needs for a reliable plumbing system while offering specialized services, like water leak repair services and replacements in Snohomish County. Leaky pipes are the most common types of plumbing problems, so it stands to reason that would be one of the issues that our well-trained plumbers are the best at fixing for homeowners.
It’s difficult to estimate water leak repairs or pipe replacements without making a formal diagnosis with an in-person consultation. However, after a thorough consultation, we can make a diagnosis and accurate estimate to cover what you can expect from expenses and time.
On average, leaky pipe repairs are minor issues that rarely require replacements. If a leaky pipe requires a replacement, there are underlying problems aside from leaks, like weakness in the entire pipe itself, old age throughout the plumbing system, or excessive use and damage over the years. You must hire a professional plumber once a year for pipe inspections for your home’s plumbing health.
How Long Do Repairs and Replacements Take for Leaky Pipes?
Leaky pipe repairs, depending on severity, can take anywhere from one to two hours. Replacements, however, can take three to four hours, depending on the length of the pipe and damage to the old pipe, which will have to be removed.
If you decide against treatment, which is your right to do as a homeowner, then you should prepare yourself for the consequences of allowing a leak to continue. Leaky pipes will only get worse as time goes on. Minor leaks could take years to develop into bigger problems, but they will happen without the proper repairs. It’s better to opt for repairs now, so you don’t have to deal with replacements later.
