Signs that You Might Have a Water Leak

It’s important that you stay vigilant about your plumbing system. If you notice anything out of the ordinary when it comes to your plumbing, then it may be time to have it looked at by a plumber. Only someone with professional water leak detection equipment and skills can adequately pinpoint the leak and its cause. Here are some signs to look for:

  • Decreased water pressure. One of the most common signs that you have a serious water leak in the home is a lack of water pressure. Whether you get your water from a well or municipal supply line, it must be kept at a certain pressure to prevent backflow and to ensure functionality. Low water pressure is often of leak within the home or even at the main water line.
  • Stains. Water often stains surfaces that are not resistant, such as painted walls and unsealed wood. If you notice discolored spots on the walls, ceilings, or floors, then it may be time to consider having your plumbing system evaluated. This is often the sign of a slow leak. Don’t think that the problem will fix itself!
  • Higher than usual water bill. While your water bill may not be as high as the other utilities, you should keep an eye on it to make sure it stays proportional to your usage. If you suddenly realize that it has spiked, then it may be time to have your plumbing system checked out for a hidden leak. This can lead to significant financial loss in the long–term.
