You’ve noticed water dripping and running all over your home. You notice it in the bathroom, in the kitchen or anywhere else that water is used in the home. This is a problem. Not only can it lead to a number of other problems, but it can cost you a lot of money to fix later on down the road if you do not take care of the problem now.
There are ways that you can detect a leak in your home, if it is visible to the eye. Then there are ways we can come in and detect a leak within your concealed water system. Here are some things to keep an eye out for to ensure that nothing is leaking inside your Dallas home.
What to Look For
Check all of the valves throughout your home for water. You might have a leak in one of these. This could be making your water pressure slower and softer. If you feel that you have a leak, checking this and tightening them can help to fix the problem.
Listen to the way your toilet works. You may hear leaking water when you listen closely. Check around the bottom of the toilet first, to see if there are any visible leaks. Usually, if there is water pooling at the bottom of the toilet, you have a problem with the seal. You may be able to replace the seal under the toilet on your own but it is not recommended if you do not know what you’re doing.
Turn off the water valves on the outside of the home, as well as the inside. Then you should locate the water meter. If you have all of the water turned off in the home and nothing is running to it, as well as the outside but the meter is still running – you have a leak somewhere in the water system. It could be a line, a pipe, a hose, anything that is providing water.
Check all of the faucets in the home to see if you have a slow leak in one of those. Sometimes this can cause the water payment to rise tremendously since the faucet is always running. If you find that one of them is, tighten the faucet or place a new seal under it. This should solve the problem.
If you find that none of these fixes the problem you’re having, consider giving us a call to learn more about how we can come in and diagnose the problem. You might have a leak somewhere within your concealed plumbing system that you’re not able to detect without the proper equipment.
How We Check Concealed Plumbing Systems
We go into the home with our state of the art equipment and listen closely. We put the equipment up to the walls, on the floors, on the ceilings and even up on the roof – if that is where the leak may be coming from. We want to find the source and we will continue to walk through the home until we find it. Sometimes, the leak could be coming from outdoors so we will listen to the basement for any sounds of water seeping in. We want to ensure that we find it, so you do not have to worry about water damages later on.
Leaks within the plumbing system are serious. They can lead to a lot of damages throughout the home. By having them detected and fixed now, you’re saving a lot of headache in the future. The leaking water is able to effect your roof, your floors, your walls and even the entire foundation of the home that you own. This can cause it to wear down and become brittle with time, not being able to hold the roof or the walls up anymore.
