Plumbing Leak Detection

Sarkinen Plumbing uses advanced equipment that allows us to many times pin-point the sources of leaks without having to tear into walls, digging up your yard which saves you money in repair costs.  This equipment also allows us to be sure that we find all the leaks and problems so we can fix your plumbing emergency right, the first time.

Questions to ask before getting a leak repair

Even with other 24 hour plumbing companies, often the plumbing issues isn’t fixed right away.  Before you decide to hire any emergency plumber for leak detection and repair make sure to ask questions.  Will they fix the leak on the first visit?  What about help with dry out?  Are they going to turn your water off and leave you waterless for more than a few hours?  As a homeowner these are important questions to ask because many plumbers will just cut open walls to expose the problem, shut the water off, tell you that you need your walls to dry out, and they come back the next day – all the while leaving you without water or sanitary services and charging you a hefty emergency bill.  At Sarkinen Plumbing we don’t operate that way.  Unless there is a real specific need or issue in rare circumstances, we fix your plumbing and get your home or business back into operation as soon as we can.  You can be assured that Sarkinen cares about your needs.
