At PlumbV we’ve found that leaks are one of the most common issues we solve for homeowners. But their prevalence doesn’t mean that leaks should be viewed as insignificant. If given the right circumstances, an unassuming leak can cause an immense amount of damage and can be a huge expense in the long run. So whatever type of leak you’re dealing with — whether from a water heater, plumbing pipes, or any other source — that’s something you’ll want to take care of right away. At PlumbV we have the skills, experience, and equipment needed to handle any leak that is threatening your home.
Signs to Look For
Though we can easily find any leaking spots for you, here are some signs to be on the lookout for. If you are experiencing or noticing any of these common manifestations of leaks, please give us a call right away. We can analyze what you’re finding and then either quickly dispatch a technician to stop the leak or schedule a future appointment. Either way, our goal is always to ensure your home’s safety, stability, and sanitation.
Pressure Change. Sudden or seemingly random drops in water pressure can happen for various reasons, but generally indicate that a problem is brewing. Regardless, when you experience an unexplained drop in pressure we always recommend calling a plumbing professional to run a leak detection check. Once a leak is detected, PlumbV experts can address it. Whatever the cause, we are equipped to handle any plumbing concerns you have.
Excessive Meter Run. Appliances draw water from your plumbing system throughout the day. Cutting off power to appliances and avoiding the use of showers, faucets, and toilets for a determined time period is one quick way to monitor water use. If there are no reasons for water to be flowing but within this timeframe you’re seeing that your water meter is continuously running, then it’s safe to assume that you have a leak somewhere in the system. Calling a professional is the best way to address the issue.
While you might notice these telltale signs, certain leak indicators may be less obvious to the untrained eye. So in addition to what you may have already noticed, a qualified plumbing expert will also want to cast their own experienced gaze on the situation.
DIY or Professional?
Plumbing projects vary, and fixing a leak can range from a simple task to a mammoth undertaking. A host of factors are at play, and your home’s integrity is at stake. But while some leaks are obvious, others can be tricky to locate. Industry know-how and specialized tools can be key in both quickly pinpointing the source of a leak and swiftly fixing it. That’s why any time you suspect your home’s plumbing system is leaking, we recommend calling a trained professional to assess the situation. Oftentimes the leak can be indicative of more serious, systemic issues that will need to be addressed.
