In your opiniion is the job to correct this problem cost at least a $2,000 ? Based on the description I provided, is this an urgent issue that needs to be taken care of right away like today?
Yes this is an urgent issue. I'm sorry but there is no way I can predict the cost from here.
Your water piping is under constant pressure. This will only get worse
Thank you. I'll wait for the plumber that our friend recommended.
Thank you. I needed that.
In the meantime do you recommend to shut off the main water shut off valve outside the house for now until the plumber gets to our house to minimize the pressure to the pipes?
Yes turn off the water main. You can always turn it back on temporarily if you need water
My pleasure. If you don't have any more questions please rate my service
We have 3 bathrooms in our house. The one outside our bedroom does not have a leak but the floor tiles are warm. Our bathroom in the bedroom which is located just on the other side of the outside bedroom separated by a wall is the one that leaks and has water trapped underneath the floor. The other bathroom is near our hallway about 20 ft away from the outside bathroom. In your opinion do you think the plumbing connections has a T underneath the outside bathroom where the warm floor is located at and that maybe pipe that going to our bedroom toilet has burst or cracked as a result of the constant pressure and high water temperature?
Pipes don't fail from normal pressure or temp. It could be a defect in the pipe or the installation. Chances are the leak is near where the floor was warm
The leak is actually in our bedroom bathroom but the floor is not warm. The bathroom with warm floor is the outside bathroom. The two bathrooms are only separated by a wall. The warm floor is about 5 to 6 ft from the leak in the other bathroom. DOes this make sense?
The water could be traveling through the floor at some point other than where the leak is and it's cooling off along the way. Floors don't warm up away from a leak. But this is just speculation you need to have someone on site check this out
Got it. THank you.
