Do you hear the rumbling of water even though you just closed all the taps? Or maybe there are patches of water in the kitchen for no reason?
These may be signs of water leakage in your house, and you need to call an expert to find the leak and have it fixed immediately.
What are some common water leak signs?
Apart from noticing patches of water around the leaking area, you may also see a few other signs of water leakage. Here are a few things you should keep an eye on:
- High water bills than usual
- Moulds on tiles around the leaking area
- Low water pressure in all the taps
- Patches of water stain on the ceilings
- Paint peeling from the walls
- Rusty pipes
What are the reasons for water leakage?
Water leakage in your house can happen due to various reasons. The following are a few factors that may contribute to your pipes leaking:
- The water in the pipe froze at night and it burst open because of the increased pressure.
- The plumbing system in your house is already too old and it contains rust pipes that don’t work properly anymore.
- Some screw or nut is loose and it’s causing the pipe to leak water.
- You had accidentally damaged one of the pipes while repairing a part of your house.
Whatever the reason may be, you can rely on us to do a good job.
How can water leaks be prevented?
You may not be able to fix the leaks yourself, but you can help prevent them from happening again.
Here are some tips you can prevent water leakage in your house:
- Clean the gutters around your house frequently. There shouldn’t be any sharp objects that may damage the plumbing system as they pass through the gutter.
- Install a smart leak detector or smart water shutoff valve in your house. These devices not only detect water leaks but also warns you about possible water damage situations so that you can prevent them on time.
- Install a smart water sensor in your kitchen. It will notify you if there’s something wrong with the refrigerator, dishwasher, water heater, or washing machine.
- Hire an expert who can check your home’s plumbing system and determine whether there are any leaks or not. It’s probably more cost-effective than installing new smart devices at home.
How does a plumber find a leak?
Our experienced plumbers use portable sensors that can detect water leaks even if there are walls in front of the pipes.
For example, if you see a water patch on a wall and you know there is a pipe behind it, our plumber will inspect the wall with his sensor and quickly find out the precise location of the leak.
Don’t know where the leaks are coming from?
If you notice any of the above symptoms in your house and think that it’s better to call an expert, you are right!
