6 Signs You Might Have a Plumbing Leak
Finding and fixing leaks are the most popular calls we field for plumbing services. Catching a leak immediately can help you avoid expensive water damage. Some leaks may be more difficult to pinpoint than others, but there are several telltale hints that you need to call a plumber in Columbus. Here are the top six:
- Your water bill is more expensive than normal.
- Your pipes frequently make thumping sounds.
- There are reddish stains in your toilet, or your water looks rusty.
- Floors or walls seem damp or soft.
- You spot water stains on the ceiling or walls.
- There’s damp soil or erosion by your home’s foundation.
How to Figure Out if You Have a Leak
If you suspect you have a leak but can’t see the evidence, check your water meter:
- Confirm no water is being used inside or outside your home.
- Examine the leak indicator on your water meter. The indicator is typically a triangular dial or tiny silver disc. If the dial is spinning, you likely have a leak.
We can identify the source of the leak and get it repaired before you spend more money or potentially damage your home.
Common Places for Water Leaks
With all the spots water is used in your home, there are many places you could notice a leak.
