Leaks spring up anywhere, however, here are the most common areas where they usually happen.
- Slab Leaks – A home’s piping system is complex that it crosses back and forth to deliver water to all areas of your house. Most of these underground pipes are connected to the concrete slabs which makes it even harder to maintain. The problem arises when the concrete changes temperatures as it could either contract or expand. Over time, the concrete underneath shifts and cracks therefore causes the underlying pipes to be exposed as well.
- Service Line – The pipeline leading from your water meter or pump to your house is called your service line. This typically runs under your driveway or yard. Problems start to happen when ground material or plants start to disrupt these pipelines.
- Wall Leakage – This type of leak normally occurs, but is often discovered already too late. You will see it once your walls are wet, and water and mold formation in the corners are already manifesting — just when the pipes inside your walls are starting to leak.
- Crawl Spaces – The pipes between crawl spaces, which are quite tight, can be hit or bumped easily by people and rodents alike. These pipes are not in any way noticeable and could start to leak through the walls.
These are just of the most common types of leaks. However, a leak could occur anywhere within a home and leak detection should be seriously taken. We at Plumbers 911 highly recommends an annual checkup to reduce the risk of leakage. This gives us the chance to inspect a home’s current system to check if there are leaks in some areas or some pipes are prone to leakage.
Common Signs of Pipe Leakage
The ones mentioned above are just few of the areas for water leakage. There’s still a lot more and this thought can be very overwhelming and the problem is worse if you live in a bigger home. There are just a lot of places where a pipe leak could start.
Fortunately though, water leakage has signs and you can keep an eye on them to make the leak detection easier.
Here are just some of them:
Proper leak detection
- Sounds of running water. You won’t miss the sound of running water especially in the dead of the night when no plumbing fixture is open or plumbing appliance is on. There is a good chance that you have found a leak when your valves are shut off, but water still continuous to flow out of your home. Today’s plumbing technology no longer allows you to hear the gushing of water unless there is a leak in your piping system and water is escaping.
- Mold and Mildew. The sight of mold and mildew are surefire way to know that you have standing water somewhere. Needless to say, water is a breeding ground for these elements and they would only start to form when there are leaks or stagnant water in your home. Keep an eye on mold and mildew as they will not only cause damage on your home but they could also pose health hazards if not professionally removed.
- High Water Bills. If you notice that your water bill is higher than what you are normally charged, then there is a huge chance that you’ve got a leak somewhere. Our plumbing professionals can easily find the leak, efficiently fix it to ensure that no water is wasted so you will only be charged with the water you’ve actually used.
- Random Wet Spots. If you are seeing random wet spots all over your home and have no one else to blame, there might be a leaky pipe somewhere. The size of the wet spot will depend on the severity of the leak and normally surfaces in concentrated areas forming random wet spots.
- Foundation Cracks. If you start seeing cracks I your foundation, then check for water leaks. This happens when pipes start to leak and water in excess starts to pool. Water then will continuously sink lower unto your foundation.
