Signs You Have a Leaky Pipe
Because most of the pipes in your home are disguised behind floorboards and walls, it isn’t always easy to tell when one of them starts to leak—until the leak becomes major. Here are some warning signs to watch for that will tell you early on when you need to arrange for professional pipe repairs:
- High water bills: When monthly water bills seem inordinately high compared to your water use, it often means you have a leak occurring somewhere. Skilled plumbers will use special detection tools and their knowledge to locate it and repair the pipe.
- Discoloration on walls: The gradual accumulation of water from a leaking pipe will start to damage drywall. This will first emerge as small spots of discoloration on the wall surface. Don’t ignore these marks; call a plumber for pipe repair immediately.
- Warped floorboards: Water leaking under the floor will cause wood to warp. If you notice bumps under the carpet, or doors that are having trouble closing because of a shift in the floor, you may have damaged and leaking pipes underneath.
