Leaky Pipes – Pipes corrode over time and more often so do the connections between the pipes. It is important to fix a leaky pipe before the problem becomes much worse and much more expensive.

Running Toilets – A toilet that keeps running is a problem much like the dripping faucet example above. It starts as just a minor annoyance but can develop into costing you more money long term.
