Are your pipes leaking?

Maybe you suspect you have a leak in your plumbing, or you’ve noticed signs of a leak but aren’t sure how to find it. Don’t just let the problem go unsolved, having a leak that isn’t fixed can lead to costly repairs, structural and property damage including a big headache down the road. Here are a few ways to find out if you have a leak and pinpoint where the leak is occurring so you can get it fixed as soon as possible.

Keep Track of Your Bills

You probably know your home well enough to know what a typical water bill costs you each month. If you notice a sudden increase in your water bill without any changes to your water usage, you might have a leak.

When you see a higher bill or multiple high bills in a row, it's a good idea to do a look over of your home to check for leaks and issues in your plumbing. You can use some of the suggestions below to further investigate the issue.

Stay Alert & Check Your Home

Check for leaks, puddles and water damage near areas that use or dispense water like sinks, showers, toilets, dishwashers and washing machines. If you do find moisture, don't stress, it may be a spill or overflow. To determine if a leak has actually occurred, clean it up and check frequently for more.

Leaks may be small and don’t always create puddles. Check for water damage around your home as well. Warping of floor boards, peeling and wrinkling of paint and mildew smells can all be signs of a leak or excess water.

Use Technology

If you’re concerned there may be a leak in an area that’s not easily accessible or you can’t tell if a leak has occurred, try using moisture monitoring technology. You can put small sensors in the affected areas to alert you if there is the presence of water.

Be sure to utilize these in places where water should never be such as under the sink or on the floor below the washing machine. If the sensors are put in areas that can get splashed like outside the shower or near the toilet, you may get false alerts.

Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure from the faucet or a spike in your water bill can indicate a water leak. The severity can range from being a minor loose connection to something more serious like a pipe rupture. This type of pressure is known to cause pipes to puncture allowing sewage gas to seep through. The gas is hazardous to everyone in the home including pets.
