Do You Have a Leak? 3 Signs That You Need Repairs
No one wants to encounter a leak in their home. Sadly, they can be a common problem that almost everyone encounters at least once in their home. There is a risk of water damage if the leak isn’t found quickly and you may encounter high energy bills because of it too.
Finding leaks is hard and fixing them can be even harder. This means that you could encounter more problems because you simply didn’t know there was a leak in your home, to begin with. We want to help you prevent that issue. Here are some of the warning signs that you may have a leak in your home so you can address it before it causes bigger problems.
3 Indicators You Have a Leak in Your Home
Catching a leak is something you want to be able to do as soon as you can. Here are some of the earliest warning signs to be on the alert for.
1. Your water meter is active without needing to be.
Take some time to check out your water meter. Is it active even when no one is using any faucets or taps in your home? If so, that may be a sign that you have a leak that is creating the pull on your water supply. Make sure to have a plumber check things out if you notice this.
2. You can hear running water despite no one using it.
If you have a moment, make sure to listen for any warning noises. What we mean by this is to listen for the sound of running water that has no business being present. If no one is using those faucets then, just like your water meter shouldn’t be active, you shouldn’t hear water either.
3. The water pressure for certain appliances is weak
Let’s say you do start using a faucet or go to take a shower. Then you have a reason to hear the water running through the pipes. However, you should be on the alert for weak water pressure. Water may be coming out as expected but it might be a trickle instead of the stream you expect. As long as you have nothing blocking your taps (such as scaling inside of a faucet head) you may need to get a plumber out to your home to check for a leak.
