3 Signs of a Plumbing Leak

In movies and television, it seems like a plumbing leak is always a dramatic event, as water bursts from a tub, sink, or outdoor pipe and begins to flood the area. However, not all leaks are so obvious, and sometimes you need help determining whether there is a leak in your home and where exactly it is. Professional leak detection equipment can determine the precise location of a leak and what must be done to repair it. However, you should learn to spot the initial signs of a leak, including the following.

  • Low Water Pressure – Low water pressure can be an inconvenience when you need a relaxing shower at the end of a long day, but more than this, it can mean trouble for your home. Low water pressure means that there is something preventing water from reaching your faucet or showerhead, such as a leak behind the wall that could damage your home and result in major renovations.
  • A Musty Smell – A musty smell in the home is a good indicator that there is water pooling somewhere in the home. Though the leaky area may not be visible, you may be on the path to developing a mold problem, so prompt leak detection and repair is vital in this instance.
  • Pooling Water – This may see obvious to some, but it’s not always so apparent. Look for wet, dark spots on the walls or ceilings, and pay attention to moist areas around the outside of the home. This includes wet patches of grass or parts of the yard where the grass seems to grow unusually quickly.

Professional leak detection equipment, which often includes listening devices that help to detect where water flow slows, are costly, and most effective when used by a trained plumber. It’s imperative that you call a professional for leak detection as soon as you notice the signs of a leak, or if you just want to gain some peace of mind.
