Leaks from pipes, plumbing fixtures and fittings are a substantial source of water waste for many homes. If not detected early and repaired, these leaks can cause significant damage. As soon as a leak is detected, water leak repair is critical.
When you detect a water leak in your home, it is extremely important to get it repaired as soon as possible to avoid damage. The best course of action is to call a professional, such as Hines Plumbing that specializes in pipe leak repair.
Some of the most common water leaks can occur around bathtubs and showers, drains, sinks and toilets. Some leaks are obvious, such as dripping faucets and leaking water heaters. But unfortunately, many go undetected for years because many plumbing leaks are hidden underground, behind walls or beneath floors.
Often times you will be faced with hidden plumbing leaks. If you do not see obvious signs of a water leak but suspect you have one, there is an easy way to determine if you have one. Just use your water meter. Follow these steps:
- Shut off all water-using appliances.
- Check your water meter and record the numbers.
- Wait at least 3 hours. Remember not to use any water in your home during this time.
- Check the water meter again. If the number has increased, you’ve got water leaking somewhere in your home.
Even if you detect a leak, you may not know its exact location.
If you want to try to locate the leak, there are a few common areas you can check, such as the rubber flapper valves in your toilets; under your kitchen and bathroom sinks; and look for drips from your bathtubs and showers. You should also check for puddles around your water heater, as well as possible leaks in your washing machine hoses. Check outside spigots and irrigation systems for hidden plumbing leaks as well.
If you do suspect a leak, but don’t know where it’s coming from, Hines Plumbing can help. Our plumbers are skilled in water leak detection and repairs. We can advise homeowners on a variety of leak repair options for some of those most frequent occurrences.
