If you suspect that you have a plumbing leak, it’s important to act quickly to address the problem. Not only can leaks wastewater and increase your water bill, but they can also cause damage to your home and lead to costly repairs. At JB Heating Services, we specialize in leak detection and repair, and we’re here to provide some tips on how to check for plumbing leaks in your home.
One of the first signs of a plumbing leak is an increase in your water bill. If you notice that your water bill has suddenly increased without a corresponding increase in your water usage, it’s possible that you have a leak.
Another common sign of a plumbing leak is the presence of water or moisture where it shouldn’t be. This can include water stains on walls or ceilings, damp or wet spots on the floor, or the presence of mould or mildew.
To check for plumbing leaks, you can start by inspecting the visible pipes in your home. Look for any signs of water damage or dripping and pay close attention to areas where pipes are most likely to leak, such as joints and fittings. You can also check your water meter to see if it is running when all of the water in your home is turned off. If the meter is still running, you may have a leak.
