When it comes to plumbing leaks at your residence or business, there are a few things you could keep in mind. Pipes leak, fixtures leak and irrigation leaks. A lot of the time, you don’t see it, but plumbing leaks are there. Don’t rely on your monthly water bill to let you know something is leaking. Be aware of some of the signs that may indicate that your home or business may have a potentially expensive water leak. Ignoring those signs can lead to greater expense down the road when it comes to repair.

Check It Out

If you hear running water when no one is using the facilities and none of your appliances are currently using water, that could be a sign that you need to hire someone to come and take a look. A simple leak detection, when done properly, can take 1-2 hours and will completely review everywhere on your property that a leak might occur. Whether inside or outside of the domicile, wherever water runs, it’s checked for plumbing leaks. As we train our certified technicians, we start at the meter and see if the water is running when everything is turned off. Is the water loss revealed between the meter and the house? If it’s there, a professional leak detection technician will find it’s source.

Warm spots on the floor are another giveaway that you have a ruptured pipe. Is your dog lying in a spot where she doesn’t normally relax? it might be due to the floor being a little warmer. If a ruptured hot water pipe under the floor is spraying out water, the floor might be warm right there and she’s letting you know.

Something more obvious might be damp or spongy walls. a pinhole is going to release a mist-like spray behind the wall and as that wall gets saturated from the back, the front is going to show signs.

Again, when you see the water meter running, but nothing in the house is operating – washer is off, showers and sinks aren’t running – something is making that meter spin. It’s a good chance that something is a leaking pipe. If you see your water meter ticking away when it shouldn’t be, that’s a sure-fire reason to call in a professional leak detection technician.
