5 Signs You Have A Plumbing Leak

Drops of water after washing your hands in the sink.

A leak in your plumbing pipes can be difficult to detect, yet it can be a source of costly damage if left alone for a long period of time. Small leaks can occur from a variety of reasons, including those from cracked or corroded pipes. Unfortunately, a pinhole leak in your underground pipes can be challenging to spot until it has already produced damage.

Here are a handful of signs to be aware of that may indicate you have a leak in your plumbing system:

1. Your Water Bill Skyrocket
Always take note of your monthly average for your water bills. This helps you recognize a potential problem if your bill suddenly increases. Make sure you are comparing bills from the same months each year, as seasonal changes in your water bill are common.
2. Your Water Meter Keeps On Ticking
Do you know where your water meter is? Check it periodically. If it continues to tick regardless of water usage in your home, you may have a leak
3. You Notice Mold & Mildew
Look high and low for signs of mold and mildew. Leaks often produce damp areas either on the ceiling or floor. A small leak won’t flood your house or even drip water, but you may notice a musty or mildew smell instead.
4. Your Foundation Is Cracking
It is not uncommon for the foundation of your home to show signs of cracking over the years as it settles in. However, if you see an accelerated rate or amount of cracks along your foundation, a persistent water leak may be compromising the structural components of your home.
5. You See Wet Spots Near Plumbing Fixtures
Take note of any wet areas around your toilets, bathtubs and sinks. If the floor looks discolored or the area is damp, you may need to consider a professional leak inspection.
