How To Spot A Potential Plumbing Leak

When a pipe bursts in your home, it’s usually rather obvious. The water pressure in your home will plummet, and there’s likely to be an obvious mess that goes along with it. But not all plumbing leaks are so apparent right away. The signs of a plumbing leak are often a bit more subtle, but they can lead to quite a bit of damage nonetheless. We’ve put together a list of a few ways to tell your plumbing system needs repair, so you can get started on scheduling repairs right away.

  • Low Water Pressure: As water slowly leaks from a pipe, less of it can move through your faucets and fixtures. Low water pressure from a single sink or from multiple fixtures in the home are indicative of this.
  • Wet Spots Around the Home: While there may not be pools of water on your floor, you may want to do a more thorough inspection for wet spots outside of the perimeter of your home, moisture in the yard, or dark spots on the walls or ceilings.
  • Grass that Grows Quickly or Appears Fuller: If there is a plumbing leak underneath your property, it could actually affect growth in your yard. Grass may grow in faster, appear greener, and you might notice that a patch of grass needs more frequent mowing.
  • Mold, Mildew, or a Musty Smell: Patches of mold in your bathroom, mildew, or a musty odor anywhere in the home can indicate a leak that has gone on for a while. We recommend calling a professional ASAP.

You’ll need a professional plumber with the proper tools to pin down the leak and ensure it’s taken care of in a timely manner. Contact your local plumber as soon as possible if you suspect a leak, in order to prevent any potential property damage.
