  • Common Signs of a Leaking Pipe

    Small leaks in the plumbing system can waste up to 10,000 gallons (or more) of water a year. These little foes don’t impact our ability to bathe or use the facilities, so folks tend to ignore them for months on end, creating a dire situation in the long run. The common signs that a pipe is in need of repair are subtle and include:

    • An unexplained increase in metered water use
    • The consistent smell of mildew unrelated to typical tasks
    • Mold or mildew growth visible on non-shower walls
    • Higher than average water bills
    • Unexplained dripping noises
    • A lack of water pressure in part of your home

    To avoid costly damage, it’s important to call a licensed plumber instead of trying to troubleshoot the issue on your own.

    Find A Water Leak? Here’s What to Do Until We Arrive

    There are steps you can take to minimize the impact of your water leak:

    • Turn Off the Water: To stop further damage, you need to shut off your home’s water flow. This will make investigating the leak easier, as well as limit the amount of water wasted and damage to your home.
    • Empty the Pipes: Your pipes are still full of water, even if it is turned off. Open the nearest faucet and let the excess drain away.
    • Dry the Affected Area: Dry around the damaged area of the pipe. Use a towel and mop up any puddles on the floor. Remove any water condensation or water droplets, as well.
    • Seal the Leak: You might be able to seal the leak temporarily—if it’s small. If the nearest plumbing appointment is a few days out, you’re going to want to do this.
    • Turn the Water Back On: If you can seal off the majority of the leak, you should be able to turn the water back on. Avoid running water in that area until your plumber can implement a more permanent fix.
