Broken Pipes

Leaky Faucets & Those Broken Pipes

A leaking pipe can go unnoticed for weeks, if not longer into months of leaking dripping water. Sometimes a plumbing leak is just an annoyance around the house, other times it can cause serious damage the longer it goes unnoticed. Regardless of whether your leaking plumbing is on your mind or not, it’s important that leaks get taken care of as quickly as possible and as soon as your notice.

Constant dripping can be due to a leaking pipe or even a broken pipe. Plumbing leaks also lead to pipe corrosion over long periods of time, resulting in serious damage to your Cypress, Magnolia, The Woodlands or Greater Houston home.

If you notice water dripping don’t hesitate to give us a call 281-469-5354. At Tucker Plumbing our Master Plumbers are available for broken pipe emergencies any time or day of the week.

Common Signs of Broken Pipes & Leaking Faucets:


If you hear bubbling sounds or groaning noises coming from pipes or walls chances are your house isn’t haunted – you’re likely to have a plumbing leak from a broken pipe.


Puddles of Water:

If you see a puddle of water on floor or near a wall and you didn’t drop or spill anything on the ground – you have a high probability of have a leak in a broken pipe from unbeknown to you source. Don’t be mistaken – some of these puddles of water tend to be in water concentrated areas that appear to be normal such as in kitchens and bathrooms.


Moldy or Funks Smells:

While your kitchen and bathroom may not always be the most fragrance appealing, an extreme odor that makes you turn up your nose or hold your breath may indicate a bigger issue.  Many of times when there is a steady drip due to a leak from a break in a pipe mold and other smells trigger the first sign of the problem.

Reduced Water Pressure:

If it’s taking a while for your water to come out of a faucet there could be an underlying reason why. A leak from a broken pipe changes the flow of the water from where it should be going to where the break is. If you notice this give Tucker Plumbing a call and we will get to the bottom of it!


Sudden Surge or Increase in Water Bill:

Not sure why your water bill spiked this month? This could be a sign of a broken pipe that is not seen to the common eye – Tucker Plumber’s advanced Master Plumbers know how to detect these types of leaks and are able to fix broken pipes before they cause an even greater amount of damage.


Discoloration in Sheetrock and Other Areas:

Notice a dark spot in your floors of our house or in your wall? (and you know that you no household member spilled anything) This is probably due to a leak in a pipe from a main water source in the wall – if you notice this give us a call 281-469-5354 to discuss repair options.
