As a homeowner, you should never ignore a water leak. No matter how insignificant it may appear. If you ignore it will cost you an arm and a leg in high bills. A leak is worse if a pipe has ruptured inside a concrete wall or floor.
It causes walls to weaken and they may eventually crack. In a worst case scenario the walls may even collapse. Think just how expensive rebuilding those walls could be.
A leak can also be life threatening. Especially if the water is flowing on a smooth surface like on tiles. The water makes the surface slippery. A single step on it can inflict life threatening injuries to anyone after falling. This is all the more reason that a leak should be dealt with quickly.
Most hot water heater tanks are made of aluminum. When the water becomes hot it reacts with the aluminum through a process called oxidation.
After many years of oxidation, the aluminum becomes weaker and weaker. Eventually it develops small holes and starts to leak. If you have a hot water heater leaking, we can comfortably fix it.
