Where Are Water Leaks Often Found?
Many leaks are difficult to detect if they are underground. Hidden water leaks can add to your water bill, in addition to causing damage to your flooring and walls.
Even if you suspect a hidden leak, it will be wise to also check your more obvious fixtures. These include showerheads, faucets, and garden hoses.
Another area to check is the pressure relief valve located on your water heater tank. These valves are often connected directly into a drain and may easily be leaking without your knowledge. If you hear a hissing sound, this could indicate a leak. We will need to remove the drain pipe to assess any problems and make the necessary repairs.
The toilet is also a source of leaking. Inspect your unit by lifting the lid from the tank and listening carefully. If you hear a hissing sound, contact us to locate the source of the leak. Leaks in the tank or bowl are often associated with the flapper located at the bottom of the tank. Problems with the flapper will often require replacement of the part.
To repair your leak, your main water supply will be temporarily shut off in order for us to examine the meter and check for issues or defects with the dial. If the dial is still turning after the valve has been shut off, there is a leak present between the meter and the house.
What are Signs You Have a Leak?
Soft muddy areas or a variation in grass growth or color are common indicators of leaks. If you notice these issues on your lawn and suspect a leak, call us to confirm the problem.
Other telltale signs include a spike in your water bill, the sound of water running even though your faucets are off, and wet spots in your flooring or walls.
