Types Of Plumbing Leaks
All water leaks hold the potential to cause serious structural damage to your home and are a waste of your money and a precious natural resource. So while all leaks are dangerous, they also fall into one of two categories. Overt leaks are the ones that are easily noticed. These can include:
- Dripping faucets, showers, hose spigots tubs
- A running toilet
- A leak in the water supply to an appliance like a dishwasher or refrigerator
- A leak at a water heater or water softener

Amazing company. Jim visited us today, took care of our plumbing problem, and charged us nothing. This is not the first time we have benefitted from this incredible company and their professional and caring behavior, something you don't always see in plumbers or small businesses. We really love this company, and appreciate their service.
We needed to have 2 outside faucets replaced, so contacted Flatirons Plumbing. We scheduled an appointment for the following morning and Bobby Kelly arrived promptly. He provided us with a price for the faucets and also pointed out some additional issues that we were not aware of. He provided us optional prices for the additional issues and thoroughly explained what was required. Bobby was friendly, very knowledgeable, and his workmanship was excellent. I highly recommend Flatirons Plumbing and will certainly request Bobby Kelly for my future plumbing needs.
I thought I was dealing with a little clog, and ended up needing to re-route one of two of the main pipes of my house to the main line. Jim was out on a Sunday helping me, and trying to trouble shoot. Once the problem was discovered, the team worked promptly to fix the issue. After the work was completed, Dave personally reached out to me, and made sure that I was 100% happy with the scope of work. These guys did a great job. I had never used them before but picked them because they’re local and have great reviews. DID NOT DISAPPOINT!
