How to Spot Signs of a Plumbing Leak

Plumbing leaks are a common occurrence in cities like Holladay, UT, where the high altitude and salty air can corrode piping over time. The issue is less with the leaks themselves — which can be fixed very easily by a qualified plumber — but by spotting the problem in the first place. It’s one thing if water is spilling out of the pipes beneath your sink, but most piping in your home lies hidden in the walls, under the floors or other spaces. Leaks that occur in these pipes can take weeks or even months to detect, causing untold damage to the drywall and surrounding components in the process. the best way to take care of them is to learn to notice the signs of a plumbing leak and act the moment you spot them. they can include:

  • Soft spots in the walls or puddles of water appearing in places that they shouldn’t
  • The sounds of dripping or running water from an unusual location, such as inside the crawlspace of your walls.
  • Bills that spike or which are higher than normal, despite no attendant upswing in the use of water in your home.
  • Water from the affected outlet that doesn’t flow with quite the same force, or which refuses to flow at all.

The dangers of leaks grow the older your plumbing system becomes, so if you live in an older home or a home that you’ve lived in for some time, you should be particularly vigilant. When you spot signs of a leak, turn off the water flow using the master shut-off valve — whose location every household member should know — and call in a qualified plumber to correct the problem.
