Leak Detection + Repair
Stop the water in its path with our swift leak response!
Water leaks can be one of the most damaging problems a homeowner can face. Think about it: if given enough time, a single drop of water has the erosive power to create canyons worthy of national park status. The team here at Roadrunner Plumbing wants to do everything we can to keep water from enacting that sort of damage on your home.
Unfortunately, water leaks can be sneaky and difficult to detect. That’s because they often happen in parts of your home that you physically can’t access, dripping away and causing unseen damage.
Here at Roadrunner Plumbing, our team is determined to be a comprehensive resource for both services and information. We’re dedicated to equipping our customers with everything they need to handle leaks as they occur and prevent major damage to their homes.
Hidden Signs Of A Water Leak
Unless you can physically see it, a water leak can be difficult to detect. This is unfortunate because the longer your pipes leak without repair, the more likely they are to cause extensive, structural damage. To help our customers out, we’ve put together this list of hidden signs that could indicate that your home is facing a potential water leak.
Increased Water bills
As homeowners, we’re required to pay for every drop of water that runs through the meter. This, unfortunately, includes water that’s lost through leaks. While having to pay for wasted water is never ideal, it does mean that abnormally high water bills could indicate that an unseen leak is present.
Random Damp Or Wet Spots
Water in your home should always have an explanation. If you notice standing water or random wet or damp spots in the middle of your floor, call our team of plumbing professionals. This type of water damage is associated with slab leaks, which is a type of leak that can damage your home’s foundation and needs to be addressed right away.
Low Or Inconsistent Water Pressure
Noticing sudden or random drops in water pressure can be a sign of a water leak. Household water pipes are pressurized systems that need to be properly sealed in order to run and maintain steady pressure. Leaks can reduce the overall pressure within your system which will then reduce the effectiveness of your faucets and showerheads.
Another potential sign of a water leak is the sound associated with it. Just like the wet spots you see and can’t explain, dripping, splashing or screeching should be noted and inspected by a professional as soon as possible.
