Leak Detection & Repair
As soon as you discover a water leak in your home it’s critical to get it repaired quickly before it worsens and causes water damage (and expensive water bills!) The obvious leaks inside a home typically involve dripping faucets and leaking water heaters, but sometimes there are leaks that remain undetected for years particularly if they’re happening underground, behind walls, or beneath floors.
If you’re unsure if you have a leak, your best course of action is to call a CityWide Sewer & Drain professional. Our plumbers can address your concerns, assess the situation, identify the source of the leak if you have one, recommend an action plan, and inspect for any other secondary leaks or water damage in your household.

Other Plumbing Leaks
Natural Gas Line Leaks
Natural gas, carbon monoxide being the most common, is used to heat the water in your boiler. This is a highly flammable gas and, if inhaled in large doses, can be fatal. Carbon monoxide is an odorless gas, but be on alert for a rotten egg odor (often added for the purpose of detection.) Keep carbon monoxide monitors located in close range to your hot water heater or any other appliance that uses natural gas, and be sure it has working batteries.
Broken Water Lines
Often gone undetected are leaks in water lines, which are located inside of walls or underground. Regularly scheduled plumbing maintenance is the ideal way to avoid the occurrence of a broken water line, especially when it comes to taking preventative measures in times of extreme weather.
