Your Guide to Detecting Water Leaks in Your Plumbing System

Your Guide to Detecting Water Leaks in Your Plumbing System

With the current water crisis in California, it’s important to take care of water leaks in a plumbing system as soon as you possibly can. But in many instances, this is not so easy to accomplish because leaks can be difficult to detect. There are times when a leak is very obvious—like when water is flooding into your home or dripping under your sink. But you may have to pay close attention to notice leaks underneath your property, in the walls, or outside of your home.

Some Signs of a Leak

There may be a few different signs that water is leaking from the plumbing system in your home even if it is not obvious at first. Check for the following issues inside and outside of the home.

  • Mold and mildew: This can contribute to a lot of health issues, so be sure to call in a professional to check out the appearance of mold or mildew as soon as you notice it.
  • Dark spots on walls and ceilings: Don’t take this type of issue lightly. Dark spots can indicate water damage behind the walls, and it must be taken care of ASAP so that you won’t have to pay extravagant prices for water damage restoration.
  • Poor water pressure: This could be due to a number of problems, but one of the most common is a plumbing leak that allows water to leak slowly into the home or yard, ultimately reducing the water pressure.
  • High water bills: Keep track of your bills and look for any unusual charges. Most homes in the U.S. have some level of water leakage they are not aware of.

Call in a Professional

When you call a professional technician for plumbing services, they can use special leak detection equipment to examine your entire property and check for leaks. In California in 2015, such a service can do a lot of good whether or not you suspect a leak in your plumbing. You may discover that your plumbing needs replacement to avoid a major costly and messy leak, or that there were already leaks in areas you never would have guessed.
