Leaks are some of the most common plumbing problems we see on a daily basis. Some of these leaks are easy to spot—a dripping faucet or a running toilet, for instance. Some, however, are not so easy: slab leaks and leaks under the floor might not become obvious until there are water stains on the drywall and wet, soggy patches on the floor! Whether it’s a washer or rubber O-ring that needs to be replaced or a section of the pipe that needs to be dug up and refitted, our plumbers can pinpoint the exact source of your leak and have it repaired quickly and cleanly.

Slab Leak Detection in Alexandria, VA
Slab leaks occur when a water line has failed under a slab foundation, and if they go untended they can do serious damage to your home. Slab leaks can be caused by chemicals in the soil that reacts with copper pipes and can cause them to deteriorate. This process is slow and can happen years after the slab and pipes are originally installed.
Slab leaks can also be caused by exposed piping coming into contact with unprotected lines, rebar, electrical conduits, or heating duct work. Friction causes the piping to become worn and leaky. Additionally, slab leaks may be the result of kinked lines or lines that have been accidentally damaged by a concrete worker or other contractor. The nick or indentation eventually wears through and causes a leak.
Pool Leak Detection in Alexandria, VA
Pool leaks can be very frustrating for property managers and homeowners alike. A pool leak can result in serious damage to surrounding buildings, and excessive water resulting from a pool leak can disturb the soil below the pool deck and can cause the deck to collapse. Successful leak detection and repair consists of information gathering and progressive leak detection, a step-by-step process where parts of the filter system plumbing and pool interior are tested in order to find the leak.

Fast and Friendly Service
When you call for a plumber, you’re looking for more than plumbing services – you want the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the plumber you hired is trustworthy and polite.

Carey’s are friendly and courteous and are glad to answer any questions you may have regarding your plumbing system.
Time and Materials
Many plumbers charge a flat rate for each job, regardless of how long it takes. We prefer to charge based on time and materials—here’s why. First, no two plumbing jobs are the same. Even a seemingly simple leak repair can vastly differ from another leak repair! Since a job may take longer for one person than another, a flat fee may lead you to overpay for your service. Next, we feel we can provide a better service by encouraging our technicians to work carefully instead of rushing between jobs. By charging time and materials, we’re able to ensure that you get the highest quality of service possible while still sticking to your budget.
