Signs You Have a Leak
While sometimes a leak is obvious, other times, it can be tricky to know if you have one or not. Here are the top signs that you may have a leak that requires repair.
1. Your Water Bill Suddenly Increased
If your water bill has spiked this month and there’s no other reason why, a leak could be to blame. Compare your current water bill to some from last year just to make sure it’s not a seasonal difference.
2. Your Water Meter Constantly Runs
If your water meter continuously runs despite the fact that you’re not using water at the moment, this could mean you have a leak somewhere.
3. You Notice Mold and Mildew Growth
Leaks result in damp spots on walls, floors, walls, and ceilings, which encourage the growth of mold and mildew. You may also notice a persistent musty odor no matter how many times you clean your home.
4. You Have Cracks in Your Foundation
As a home settles, it’s normal for cracks to develop in the foundation over the years. However, if you notice large or frequent cracks that come on suddenly, the culprit could be a leak. Leaks weaken the structural integrity of a home, leading to cracks in walls and foundations.
5. You See Wet Spots
If you notice wet spots near your toilets, tubs and sinks, or discolored plumbing features in those areas, this can signal a leaking pipe.
Leaks should not be ignored. You could be spending unnecessary money on higher water bills, plus you could be damaging your home and your plumbing system.
