Common Signs You May Have a Water Leak
Not all leaks are easy to spot, which is why it’s important to know the related symptoms to better understand the severity and possible location of the leak.
Anytime there’s water leaking in your plumbing system, that means there’s less water making its way to the fixture you’re using. Low water pressure throughout your home could indicate a water leak.
Obviously a pool of water is never a good thing. As water consistently drips from your fixtures and plumbing, it can cause flooding or a pool of water in a specific area of your home. This often gives you an idea as to where a leak may be located.
For water leaks that are behind walls or above ceilings, the main thing you’ll notice is staining. Whether it’s a yellow patch on the roof or some discoloration in your baseboards, never ignore these signs.
Hear the water running even though no one is using the plumbing? No, your house isn’t haunted, you may simply have a plumbing leak that’s running water even when you’re in bed.
Leaking water is wasted water. If you see an uptick in your utility bills but haven’t made any changes in your daily usage or routine, it’s often an easy warning sign that something is wrong.
In the worst-case scenario, water may have been leaking long enough to cause mold or mildew growth. Not only is this unsightly, but also it can create a musty odor in your home.
By addressing water leaks as early as possible, you can generally limit extensive damage to your home. Mold remediation, for example, can lead to added expense, which is never something we want for our customers.
How is Leak Detection Done?
Using a highly flexible auger-type camera, a plumber will be able to look through your system from the inside. Not only does this over a general overview of the health of your system, but also it can help locate a water leak with pinpoint accuracy.
Depending on the water meter you have in your home, our plumber will start by checking that. If it doesn’t, a basic test can be performed where you take a reading, ensure that no water is used for an hour, and then take another measurement. If the reading has changed in any way, our plumbers will know there’s a leak in the system.
While it doesn’t have to be a massive excavation, if a leak is hard to locate, some digging will be needed. This helps our plumbers to get behind walls and under flooring for those harder to find leaks. This is often the last resort once all other methods have been tried.
The last thing you want to deal with is fixing a leak only to find that a new one has sprung a few feet further away. Our plumbers always go above and beyond to ensure a long term solution to your home.
A common cause of water leaks is excessive pressure caused by a clog. Reduce clogs in your pipes with routine drain maintenance!
