Leak Detection: Signs of a Water Leak
When it comes to leaks, don’t take any chances. Being proactive can stop small problems from becoming major issues. Here are a few tell-tale signs of a water leak in your plumbing system.
Water Bill Spikes
Check the history of your water bill. If there is a change or pattern of significant increase it could be from an undetected leak. Compare the same month from the previous year to see any indications.
Foundation Cracks & Shifts
Sudden and frequent cracks could mean you have a pipe leaking behind the scenes. Seepage can cause damage and present itself as cracks in your foundation and other structural components such as walls.
Ticking Water Meter
After turning off your home's water, check to see if your meter moves. If it starts quickly you could have a significant leak. If it slowly increases, your leak may be of smaller impact.
Mold, Mildew & Wet Spots
Look for damp spots around sinks, toilets, showers/tubs, in your laundry area and by the water heater. You may also find water accumulation in your yard.
