Anything containing water has the potential to leak. Plumbing leaks can occur when a drain pipe develops a hole from corrosion, or a drain line is clogged and the water seeks a place to go. Leaks can also occur on water supply lines due to constant high water pressure, and continuous pulling and pushing actions that weaken pipes.

Signs of Leaks

  • Water stains or damage on a ceiling or wall  
  • Water pooled at the base of a toilet, at the base of a faucet, or under a sink
  • Standing water anywhere in a house
  • A mold smell under a sink or a musty smell in the basement or anywhere in the house
  • An unusually high water bill

Leak Detection

At times it can be difficult to tell where a leak is coming from since a leak may not originate from an obvious place. It could come from a radiant floor heater, a radiator, a hot water tank, a dishwasher, an ice-maker, or from gutters filled with debris, and more. If you suspect a leak, or if you notice mildew, mold or water stains, call Raymark Plumbing and Sewer at 206-430-1954. Raymark is experienced and knowledgeable in detecting leaks. Our expert plumbers will locate the source of any leak and make the needed repairs.

  • I sometimes hear water running when there’s no water turned on in my house. Does that mean I have a leak?

    You may have a water line leak. Call Raymark Plumbing and Sewer. We will locate and repair the leak.

  • What is a water alarm?

    A water alarm is a small and inexpensive device you can purchase at a hardware store.  Place a water alarm near your water heater, wash machine, furnace pump, sump pump, dishwasher, and anywhere else a leak may occur.  When the device comes into contact with water, an audible alarm sounds.

    Water alarms are great for basements, a rarely used bathroom, or other areas you don’t frequent on a daily basis. Acting immediately can help prevent water damage to floors, walls, and furniture. 

    There are also high end water alarms your plumber can tell you about. Call Raymark Plumbing and Sewer to contain your home’s water leak.


    review rating 5  As a preventative measure I had the old rubber hoses upgraded to metal hoses for my washer plus, installed new hot & cold faucet seats. Tanya took my incoming call and she was most pleasant and professional. Though this was elective and not urgent, plumber Jose had time to come out same day. The office called me two more times to advise me Jose would be at my condo within 30 minutes. Jose and his partner evaluated my request and gave me a quote. I elected to proceed. Jose completed the work perfectly in one hour. The space was left clean and tidy and my washer / dryer put back in place. Cost? Well, let me just say this. Any young man floundering in college with no apparent purpose, racking up enormous student loan debt, consider a plumbing apprenticeship. You will have a most comfortable income. I appreciate professional trades people.

    review rating 5  Highly recommend! Raymark has been taking care of my home for 12 years. I bought an older condo and as the original equipment has needed repairs or outright replacements since day one. They have been prompt, reliable, solid workmanship, competitive and so professional. The materials and equipment they use is high quality and still appropriate for my budget. Reputable billing. Never once stood me up, and stand by their work. Never a callback. And they are careful with my home. My go-to company. I’m a very happy customer.

    review rating 5  This awesome company came out and cleared our sewer main in no time flat. Dion was courteous, competent, professional, reliable, and did a beautiful job! It is important to me that we hire local, and the truth is, you just get better service! Also, it is important if you don't have a lot of time in your day that you choose a company that will actually show up, and show up when they say they will, and have efficient office staff to help as well. Raymark also provide their employees with benefits, which is SO important! It made me feel glad to support their business, and they are my go-to from here on out. Beautiful service! Please give them a try!
