Signs Your Tampa Home May Have a Plumbing Leak
If you’re worried about the disastrous results of a leak in your home’s plumbing, here are some warning signs you can be on the lookout for:
- Unexpectedly high water bill: Water usage in homes tends to fluctuate as usage increases in the summer due to irrigation, but if you see a spike in your home’s water usage and you don’t know the cause, you may have a leak.
- Mold and mildew: Visible mold or mildew on your walls or ceiling is a big sign of a water problem in your home, and you should call a professional right away.
- Odors: Musty smells are an indicator of mold or mildew that might not be visible through the walls yet. If you notice persistent musty odors in your home, it’s a good idea to call an expert.
- Stains on walls or ceiling: Water marks or stains on your drywall are another major sign that you have a leak, and they should never be ignored.
- Running water meter: Turn off all the water in your home, then take a look at your water meter. If it’s still running, you probably have a plumbing leak.
- Foundation cracks: As your home shifts and settles, hairline cracks can form in your foundation, walls, or driveway. If these cracks suddenly start to grow, an undetected leak may be the culprit.
How We Detect Leaks in Your Home
We can use various methods to determine whether there are leaks within your plumbing system. These include miniature cameras connected to a long fiber optic cable to feed into your pipes. The camera allows us to see the condition of the pipe walls and determine whether there are breaks, cracks, holes, etc.
Other methods include visual inspection of the home. For example, we can apply dye tests to toilets. We can also look for wall/flooring discoloration, bubbling paint, bulging wallpaper, listen for drips, and “sniff” for musty smells and odors. We’ll often start with the visual methods first because this helps us zero in on the potential leak location faster.
The Importance of Hiring a Professional
Video cameras can be rented; however, if you don’t know what you are looking for, it is easy to go right past the leak you are looking for. It is important to hire a professional to do the work when it comes to leak detection. Retaining the services of a licensed, certified, and fully insured professional plumber ensures that if there is a leak, it will be found.
Moreover, you can damage your pipes if you incorrectly use cameras and other tools. This means you could create an additional leak that could cause more damage to your home and personal property. So, in the end, DIY leak detection is something we strongly advise against. It’s simply not worth the risk of missing a problem or causing one.
