Fixing the problem is usually not the hard part. Finding where the leak is coming from is often the biggest challenge. If you are having leaks DO NOT throw money at the problem until you actually find the SOURCE of the leak. Watch Kent's on demand video to see the techniques he used to isolate the real source.
