How Do I Know If I Have a Plumbing Leak?

Some plumbing leaks are obvious and will be easy to find. You may find puddles on the floor near the source of the leak, which is a clear sign that you need to get in touch with our plumbers for comprehensive leak repairs in Houston. 

In other cases, however, leaks may be “hidden.” You might hear something that sounds like dripping water, or you may see an unexplained spike in your utility bills. But, try as you might, you may not be able to visually confirm the existence of a leak.

If you have reason to believe you are dealing with a leak but cannot locate its source, follow these simple steps:

  • Turn off all of your home’s faucets, fixtures, and appliances so that you are not actively using water anywhere in your house.
  • Check your water meter. The dial should not be moving or spinning, and the number readout should remain constant.
  • Return in about an hour to check the meter again. If the dial or number readout indicates you are using water, there is a good chance there is a leak somewhere within your system.

Where is the Leak Located?

The results of the above test can also help you determine where a hard-to-find leak may be located. 

How to know if the leak is inside or outside your home:

  • If the dial on your meter keeps spinning or increasing, the leak is likely outside.
  •  If the dial or number readout stays still but you are still seeing other signs of a leak, it is probably coming from somewhere within your home. 

Check underneath sinks, near appliances like your washing machine, and anywhere else you could have a leak. Plumbing leaks can be hidden behind walls and even underneath your home’s foundation, so do not be surprised if you cannot immediately find them.

Having trouble finding where a leak is coming from? Our Houston leak detection specialists use powerful tools and techniques to locate the source of tough-to-find leaks. We can also check for leaks as a part of routine plumbing maintenance. 

Signs You Need Immediate Leak Detection and Repair Services

A minor leak will not cause considerable damage if it is addressed in a timely manner. If a leak is ignored or goes undetected for too long, though, it can worsen and eventually lead to a plumbing emergency. Some people do not notice leaky plumbing until it is too late to prevent extensive water damage. However, if you know what to look out for, you can catch many leaks early and get professional Houston leak repair help before they become major problems.

You should not wait to get in touch with Santhoff Plumbing if you notice:

  • Consistently low water pressure
  • Mold or mildew growth
  • Unpleasant smells emanating from your pipes
  • Damp drywall
  • Peeling paint
  • Warped flooring
  • Persistent dripping sounds

One or a combination of these symptoms indicates that a leak may have already advanced to a dangerous state. Depending on the nature of the leak, your family and your wallet could be at risk. For smaller leaks, you could end up paying substantially more on your utility bills for wasted water. A couple of drips may not seem like much, but they can waste gallons of water every year. Unwanted moisture can also increase the risk of mold and mildew growth, which can pose a health hazard for you and your loved ones.

Drain and sewer leaks could put your health at risk in other ways, too. For example, they could attract some types of pests into your home or expose you to sewer gas, which can be toxic at high levels. 

Why Call Santhoff Plumbing?

Remember that leaks tend to worsen over time. What starts as a drip every now and again can turn into a Niagara Falls-level leak that causes huge amounts of damage that can cost a fortune to repair. So, if you suspect you have any kind of leak, do not wait to reach out to our Houston leak detection professionals. One of our experts can find and repair the leak for your peace of mind.

Let us put our hundreds of years of combined experience to work for you. Call our Houston leak detection and repair team at (713) 360-2185 or contact us online today!
