Leak On Floor When Bathroom Sink Runs

Water on the bathroom floor or on the floor of the wall behind the bathroom, maybe the kitchen?  We had this happen to a good customer the other day.  They had just gotten back into town and turned on their bathroom sink faucet.  The husband noticed water on the floor coming out from under the refrigerator.  They had just gotten a new refrigerator and thought maybe the ice maker line connection was leaking.  He pulled the refrigerator out and checked the ice maker line, that was fine.   But there was still water on the floor.  That’s when he called a professional.  Wimpy’s Plumbing & Air, sprang into action and within a hour of the phone call, we were at the home in Sarasota with the plumbing problem, investigating the cause of the water on the floor.

When we arrived we found that the original plumbing waste line serving the lavatory, had finally worn out.

After cutting the mud tiled wall, behind the vanity using our Hilti Dustless Technology cutting equipment to eliminate all the dust from cutting concrete, we were able to show our customer the problem (“See in Action“).  The original inspection tag was still on the copper lavatory waste arm that was leaking from the holes in it. The tag was dated February 2, 1955!  How’s that for getting some life out of your plumbing system!

Plumbing problems like this, is very similar to having surgery done on your body by a surgeon.  First, they diagnose, then prep the area, perform the surgery, clean up and follow up.  So, Plumbers are just like Doctors.  Would you want your surgery performed by someone other than a licensed surgeon?  Would you want the heart of your home, the plumbing system, to have a band aid put on the plumbing ailment, or have the proper surgery done to ensure longevity?

Rest assured, Wimpy’s Plumbing & Air will always to what is your best interest.  We are the surgeons in the Plumbing Industry.  We don’t put on band aids.  We are the Real Thing.

For immediate assistance with your plumbing emergencies, call 941-322-1911 or schedule on line,  How does that motel commercial say it, we’ll leave the light on for ya!
