How to Spot a Leak
In some cases, it will be obvious that you have a leak because water will be spraying out of a pipe, dripping from the sink, or seeping through the ceiling. However, not every leak is sudden and unexpected. Many leaks start out as small issues that, if noticed, can be corrected in plenty of time. Some signs that you have a leak in your home are:
- Dark spots on the walls, floors, or ceilings
- Mold outbreaks
- Dripping water from a faucet or other appliance
If you notice signs of water damage or mold starting to appear, you should schedule a service to have your home assessed by a professional plumbing company. You might be tempted to put it off until you can no longer avoid it, or until it gets worse, but we would discourage that. If water is leaking from a fixture in your home, that doesn’t necessarily mean you need a pricey replacement. The problem could be as simple as a loose part or a seal that’s been damaged and needs a quick fix.
It is a good idea, however, to make sure you know where the fixture shutoff valve is located, as well as the main shutoff valve. If something happens where you need to immediately cut off the water supply, you’ll need to turn the fixture shutoff value clockwise to stop the flow of water. If that doesn’t work, or there is no fixture shutoff valve, you should find the main shutoff valve and turn that clockwise until the main water supply pipe is no longer pumping out water.
