Finding that you may have a leak is relatively easy. The place to start would be if you receive a much higher water bill. If your water habits haven’t changed and your water bill increases, it’s time to do some detective work.
Carefully inspect your property and home, looking for dampness and possibly water damage. Your nose can help since leaks often produce mold and mildew.
If you can’t find the leak, there is a simple test. Turn off all the appliances in your home that use water, then write down your current meter reading and for the next few hours, don’t use any water. Check the water meter after that time and if it has changed, you likely have a water leak.
Pipe Leak Detection
If you believe you have a plumbing leak and cannot find the source, it’s time to contact
Order a Plumber. We can identify parts of your plumbing system that you may not be aware of. Plus, we can inspect every inch of pipe in your system, with the use of camera detection equipment.
Also, if you want to be proactive about leaks in your plumbing system, you can install water sensors. These devices are installed in areas where hidden leaks occur, and sophisticated models can even turn off your water supply when excess moisture is detected. Water sensors can be expensive, so if you don’t want to justify the expense, at the very least make a practice of looking for signs of water damage throughout your home on a regular basis.
