Signs You Need Emergency Leak Repair
High Water Bill?
If your water bill increases for no obvious reason, it's likely you have a water leak somewhere in your home. Even small leaks can add up fast, wasting thousands of gallons of water and running up your water bill.
One way to see if there’s a leak is to check your water usage when no one is at home. Write down the numbers on your water meter before you leave and check the meter when you return. If the meter has moved at all, you have a leak.
Lower Water Pressure?
Common causes of low water pressure include a buildup of sediment in pipes, faulty valves, and water leaks. When you have any type of leak, less water is able to run through your pipes to where you need it.
If you notice a sudden decrease in your water pressure when no other fixtures are being used, it may point to a leak somewhere in the system.
Mold or Mildew?
Persistent water leaks lead to mold and mildew. Along with being unsightly, mold can cause upper respiratory issues and irritate allergy and asthma sufferers. In extreme cases, water leaks can lead to the development of toxic black mold which is very dangerous.
If you have a persistent, musty odor in your basement, it’s most often the result of mold growth. As mold grows and spreads, it emits gasses which release a musty odor. Regardless of what is causing a musty odor, don’t ignore it. Finding the cause and resolving it will prevent bigger and more costly repairs in the future.
Mold left unchecked damages wood, drywall, and other materials so it is important to take action immediately to prevent expensive damage to your home and protect your family’s health.
A dark spot or other discoloration on the ceiling is a sign of a water leak. These spots often indicate a leak in the roof, but if you have an upstairs bathroom and a discolored spot on the ceiling below that bathroom, the leak is likely coming from that bathroom.
You often won’t see signs of a leak on the ceiling until the leak has been there for a while, so you need to address the problem as soon as you notice it.
When things are working properly, the plumbing in your home should be relatively quiet. There are several reasons you might hear rattling or other strange noises in your plumbing. Vibration or rattling sounds could be a sign of a loose fitting or mount somewhere in the lines. If that’s the case, they could also be the cause of a water leak doing damage inside your walls.
If you hear water running when fixtures are turned off or any other strange noises like rattling or hissing in your pipes, it’s important to determine the cause and have it resolved.
Older homes, in particular, are likely to have galvanized steel pipes or drains. Galvanized steel will eventually develop rust and corrosion which leads to leaks.
If you notice signs of discoloration, stains, flaking, or visible rust on exposed pipes, it’s a sign of corrosion. Replacing rusted or corroded pipes before a complete failure occurs will save you time and money in the long run.
