Signs of a Hidden Plumbing Leak
Knowing you have a plumbing leak is easy when a pipe bursts and water is flooding in your home. However, all leaks are not as dramatic and easy to detect. Plumbing leaks often start very small, as a tiny drip or pinhole leak behind a wall or under the floor. Since most of your plumbing system is not visible, these leaks can go undetected, silently causing damage until the pipe eventually fails.
You may have a plumbing leak if you notice:
- The sound of running water
- Unusually high water bills
- Damp spots on floors or ceilings
- A warm spot in the floor
- An odor of mildew
- Cracks in the walls or foundation
- Visible mold or mildew growth
- Wet spots or overgrowth on the lawn
Calling a plumber at the first sign of a leak can help avoid a bigger problem and much more expensive repair. If you have noticed one or more of these signs, you could have a leak behind a wall or even under the ground.
