5 Subtle Signs of a Water Leak You Shouldn’t Ignore

5 Subtle Signs of a Water Leak You Shouldn’t Ignore

It might appear like a minor issue, but a water leak can cost you gallons of water. A water leakage is not always evident, and an occasional inspection of your pipes will help track down the source of the problem. Here are the telltale signs of plumbing leaks in your home;

Increased Water Bills

Probably, if you’re keen to track the water consumption in your home, you can reduce the possibility of being struck with high water bills. However, if after checking the water bills you discover a trend whereby the water bill has been rising for the past several months without any sufficient reason, then there’s a problem with the plumbing system. 

Consistent Sounds of Flowing Water

You've confirmed that the faucets are off, and the tub is very dry, but you can still hear the hissing sounds of water as it flows. Locate the source of the sound and call a plumber before the problem escalates. 

Low Water Pressure

With no explanations whatsoever, the taps seem to take ages to fill a bowl, or the shower heads drip annoyingly due to the low pressure. At times, the issue can be continuous, or it comes and goes. Although a blockage in the pipes could be a culprit, you cannot overlook a leakage in the piping.

Discolored, Wet Floor & Sagging Ceiling

If a small leakage starts to damage any part of the home, then it must have existed for months or even years. Constantly and overly wet bathroom floor, saggy and discolored ceiling, patches and growth of smelly molds on the wall should be clear indicators of a water leakage. 

Meter Running When Taps are Turned Off

Frequent checking of the meter’s indicator will tell if there’s a leakage. Turn off all the faucet and monitor the meter for more than an hour. If the meter indicator keeps moving, then you have a leakage.

“We are truly grateful for everyone’s quick response to our flood in the main building here at St. Cyprian Church. The workers were tremendous in their search-and-find techniques to locate our buried sewer main line. The clean out was a difficult and tedious job but they stayed with it for hours. On Friday, business was as usual here and it would not have been if your company had not come out to the rescue. I’m sure the parishioners are happy to know that the bathrooms are available and that our problem has been eliminated. Be assured that your kindness and efficiency are appreciated. We are also grateful that you recognize our financial limitations. May our gracious God bless you all for your care.” –-St. Cyprian Staff
