How do I find out where my water leak is coming from?
Detecting a water leak early is critical to saving money and preventing serious damage to your home. Below are signs that you may be dealing with a leak and need to contact a plumber for repairs.
1. Inspect your water meter
See if your meter changes even after turning off all the water in your home. Immediate changes would point to a fast-moving leak while changes hours later would signal a slow-moving leak.
2. Check your usage
Compare the water usage in your monthly bill to how many gallons your home should realistically be using.
3. Evaluate your bill
Has your water bill increased but usage hasn't? Look at bills from the last several months and compare to see if there's a gradual increase.
4. Use food coloring
Drop food coloring in your toilet tank, wait 10 minutes, and then check if the color appears in the bowl. If so, water is leaking from the tank to your drain without ever flushing.
5. Check outside spigots
Connect a garden hose to a spigot and check if water seeps through the connection while running. If so, replace the rubber gasket and make sure all connections are tight.
6. Be proactive
Regularly check under basins and the backs of cabinets for signs of mold or bad odors. If your home is older, be especially conscious of inspecting the connections of your water heater, washing machine hoses, pumps, and valves for oxidation or discoloration.
Risks of an undetected water leak
When an undetected water leak is present in your home, the consequences can be quite costly depending on how long it is allowed to go on. Not only will you suffer significant water damage in the area of the leak, but you’ll also face a costly cleanup and possibly renovations if there was enough damage. You will also run the risk of dangerous mold growth and your water bills could climb to a ridiculous level.
