Looking Out For Water Line Leaks
For leaks to one of the many water lines in your homes, the first sign will usually be noticeable water somewhere where it shouldn’t be. Ideally, the leak is isolated under a water fixture where it’s easy to fix. In some cases, however, the leaks may go unnoticed and result in soggy flooring, wet drywall, or mold.
Main line water leaks present a different problem. Unlike more minor leaks inside your walls, your main line lies outside, underneath the soil and entirely out of sight. Which makes any leak or clog a bigger problem to deal with.
Where a leaky pipe inside might immediately yield something easy to manage, hidden leaks to your main water line could likely go unnoticed until they turn into a larger problem.
For either kind of leak, monitoring your water usage is the easiest way to know something is wrong.
Homeowners who aren’t on automatic billing have a leg-up here. If you’re on autopay, as most people are, it might be a good idea to check your usage if you haven’t in a while.
While a larger draw could mean something as simple as an increase in shower time, a big jump could mean you have a leak that’s become something increasingly unmanageable. Before jumping to conclusions, start by ruling out smaller leaks in the home that are easier to fix. For any kind of leak, however, your best bet is to call up a qualified plumber and obtain a guaranteed assessment of your home’s plumbing.
Low water pressure means something is wrong.
If it seems like your shower isn’t quite as forceful as you want it, or your sink is barely getting your hands clean, you’ve got reason to believe a leak has compromised your water pressure, at least to one of the specific water fixtures. If it seems like your water pressure has dropped throughout the house, it could be because water is escaping through a main water line leak..
Old pipes are prone to leaks.
Over time and with any degree of use, every pipe deteriorates and experiences solely because of wear and tear. Eventually, all plumbing will eventually require professional intervention, including repiping. So if the plumbing in your home is all-original, the likelihood of a leak occurring is increased significantly.
Digging on your property might have affected the main water line.
This one applies to the main water line. It’s more common than you’d think: Following excavation on the property, main water lines are accidentally punctured and require repair. Because the trench is usually present, the leak is typically noticed right away, but sometimes there is a delay.
So if the other signs of a leak follow recent construction on or near your property, it’s possible that the main water line may have been damaged.
