Saving water is saving money. The more you can do around your home to guard against leaks, the more cash you will save in the future. These are pretty simple truths. If you have been following the Accutech blog, then you’ll know that we’ve been on a bit of a water conservation kick lately. Why? Because not only does water conservation save you money, it also helps conserve our most precious natural resource: water. Preventing Sarasota water leaks through inspections, leak detection and leak location are valuable tools in the fight against water waste.
Household leaks can cause thousands of dollars worth of damage, drive your water bill through the roof and waste water. These leaks often happen out of sight where the water damage can spread, being soaked into wood work like baseboards over time and spreading up through sheet rock. As we’ve noted, this not only sets you up for expensive repairs to your home, but also creates the ideal environment for mold to grow from fungi. That’s why we at Accutech encourage our customers and neighbors alike to perform routine water leak inspections around your home. It’s fast. It’s easy. If you find you have any questions about waters leaks or suspected water leaks, be sure to contact us at Accutech restoration. We’re here to help answer any questions St. Petersburg citizens have about water leaks in their home, about how to begin the drying process and how to proceed. If the damage is extensive, we wholly recommend you contact us immediately to help rapidly stop the damage.

Washing Machine Connections
- Inspect for tiny leaks in the connections to both hot and cold water lines. Repair even the most ‘minor’ leak.
- Check both ends of the water lines for possible leaks. Replace the small hose washers in the lines if they haven’t been replaced recently.
- Check for discharge hose kinks and cracks. If the hose is brittle or old, replace it.
- If the utility sink drains sluggishly, take appropriate steps to relieve the clog.
- Watch for any signs of dripping faucets, water damage to the flooring or leaks in the drain pipe. Do not ignore even a small leak.
