Leak Detection Pueblo, CO
Leaks are a serious problem. Knowing the signs can save you time and money.
As a homeowner you understand that leaks happen. Small leaks or big leaks can translate into a big expense. Patterson Plumbing & Heating has been helping customers with leak detection, prevention, and repair for over 35 years. Here are a few helpful FAQs to help you.
Signs of Water Leak
What are the signs of a water leak? Well besides the obvious pooling in the basement or water pipe spraying water, the outside of your home can be a great indicator of a leak. Moss or greener vegetation around the home could indicate damaged pipes, valves, or even sprinklers. Toilets are one of the leading culprits of leaks inside the home. To check if your toilet is leaking, simply put a couple drops of red food coloring in the tank of the toilet and wait about 20 minutes. If any red dye shows up in the bowl of the toilet then you have a leak. Another sign of a water leak may be water around the base of the toilet or wet spots occurring on the ceiling of your home.
Different Kinds of Leaks
There are several different kinds of leaks including toilet, underground, and irrigation. Water supply lines are usually easy to identify by their sound or visual signs of leaking or flooding. Older cast iron or copper pipes are more prone to rust and holes. Plumbing fixtures can have visible or even hidden leaks that aren’t always caught right away.
A leak can account for up to 15% of your homes water usage if not taken care of right away. Detection is the first step in ensuring your home is safe from major concerns and major damages. Kinetico offers a leak detection system that protects your home from leaks and floods. These systems can automatically shut off the water whenever a leak is detected.

We had a horrible issue with our sump pump- floor damage, wall damage, the whole 9..... If you've ever had those type of issues you understand the frustration. We were very worried about the cost of all the repairs. We googled plumbers in the area and chose to work with PPH because of their high ratings and reviews, and now I know why they have those reviews!
What a great company. They were able to get out here within 2 days but got the work/repairs done within what seemed like minutes. Our technician was Nate Fluharty. He was very friendly and respectful and did an amazing job! He had to cut in our wall to access where the repair needed to be done. He was very careful to protect the floor (even though it needed to be replaced) and we really appreciated how little damage was done to the wall (we've had a plumber come in and just take a hammer to a wall once)! He was very knowledgeable and explained things to us where we could understand and gave us some ideas on how to prevent what had happened. We will ALWAYS use PPH for any plumbing needs from here on out and I hope you give them a shot!
Caleb & Nick were friendly, helpful, and very good at explaining what had been done before and after the repairs. It was a very pleasant experience, and they were very good at explaining all the stages of servicing and repairing my HVAC system. The next time I need work done on my HVAC system I will call them again and request these two!
Colton & Nate worked on the plumbing in my kitchen and bathroom. It was nice to have such a friendly and knowledgeable set of people completing the finishing touches of my remodel. I have called and asked for information from Colton, even after all the work was completed. I would also recommend this team on the plumbing side to anyone in the area they work.
I am very satisfied with Patterson and look forward to my next experience with them!
next we had Joe Romero at our door. Joe is very professional, and knowledgeable , he explained in detail concerning our issues and offered suggestions. thank u for your professional and friendly attitude
In retrospect, I'm a bit upset with this company. I stand by my words above. The company and employees did an excellent job; however, looking back at the price I feel a bit swindled. I took their word that this company was competitively priced. This is my fault for not doing my research. They charged me over $3000 to put in a new hot water heater. I recently found out that this job should have cost between $1000-$1500. Angry don't even being to describe how I feel. As a consumer I guess I'm just out of luck. Please do yourself a favor and get quotes from multiple companies.
Derek came out and gave us 2 prices. One for a fix he was hoping for and a higher price if things went wrong. He got to work and by a miracle he was able to get it fixed at the lower of the two prices saving us over $1,300. He could have easily said “nope, sorry can’t fix it” and charged us the higher price and we would have been none the wiser.
Are Patterson’s prices the best in town? Probably not. I’m sure I could have called around and found someone to do the job cheaper but how much time and effort waiting for others to come out would be worth it. Derek was here, he guaranteed the work and could get it done same day.
Thanks Derek and Patterson for coming to the rescue. We truly appreciate you and as much as we enjoyed the service we hope to never see you again. Lol
Update: 2 days later and Patterson is back. I would like to say they messed up and had to come back and fix something but the first issue is still 100% fixed (not really a bad thing but worth noting. Lol). This was a new issue in a different part of the house. I called.... they answered and within a few hours Rich showed up. He diagnosed the problem in about 30 seconds. He went to his truck and grabbed the parts.Holy cow!! Patterson has visited my house now 2x in 2 days for unrelated issues and has completely taken care of us. I again will repeat, you are not getting the cheapest service in town. But you are getting probably the best customer service in town!
Rich, I hate to have seen you guys again but man, Your guys are fantastic!! Thanks Rich!!
everything step by step courteous on time .cleaned up everything. I would definitely use this company again,.
