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.
