Leaking Toilet Repair | Pure Plumbing

Leaking Toilet Repair | Pure Plumbing | Pure Plumbing | Scoop.it
There are many things that can cause water to appear near your toilet, and Pure Plumbing can help you solve most of these problems with our years of knowledge and experience. The most likely cause of water near the toilet, however, is simple condensation on the outside of the tank. This is caused by the interaction between the cold water inside the tank and warmer air inside your bathroom. To see if condensation is taking place, all you need to do is wipe the tank with a towel and see if more water sweats from it. If this is the problem, all you need is a toilet tank liner or an anti-sweat valve, and we can easily install one of those valves for you. If condensation isn't the problem, the next most likely culprit is a leak inside the tank itself. To check for a leak, just remove the tank lid and pour a small amount of food coloring into the water. Leave your toilet alone for about 15 minutes while the coloring sets.

Troubleshooting Refrigerator Leaks | Pure Plumbing | Pure Plumbing | Scoop.it
Homeowners find it disconcerting to find a puddle of water near the refrigerator, and many assume that it is an indication that a new refrigerator is going to be required in the near future. Most of the time, however, the problem is easily remedied. The primary challenge for the average homeowner is to identify the source of the leak, because there are several different potential causes. Clogged Defrost Drain If the water is pooling inside the refrigerator and then spilling onto the floor, the problem is most likely a clogged defrost drain.

The drain can clog from debris, or it can become ice-bound. The location of your defrost drain varies by model. In most units, however, it is located underneath the vegetable or fruit drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator. Remove the drawers and check to see if there is water standing underneath them. If
