3 Warning Signs That Tell You There is a Leak in Your Home

When it comes to dealing with a leak in your home, time is always an important factor. Catching a leak early on can mean preventing major water damage to your home and even saving yourself from worsening leaks in the long run. The problem is, they aren’t always obvious…or visible. Here are the warning signs to check for that will tell you when to reach out to a professional to check things out:

  1. Weak water pressure: A reduction in the water pressure from one of your faucets for showers may indicate a leak in the pipe leading to that appliance. If you are starting to notice one or more appliances in your home have weaker water pressure then it is time to have a plumber come over and check things out.
  2. The sound of running water: When no one is using any of the plumbing appliances in your home do you hear the sound of running water? Water usually isn’t moving through your pipes on its own without reason. The sound of running water in your walls without a cause is likely a sign of trouble.
  3. An over-active water meter: Take a moment to go check on your water meter. As long as no one is using any faucet or flushing a toilet that water meter really shouldn’t be moving. Are you noticing that, instead, it looks like someone has left the bathroom sink running? If so, then there is a chance you have a leak in the home!
