Not all plumbing leaks are easy to spot like a dripping faucet or leaky pipes under the sink. Sometimes, the broken pipe is hidden behind a wall or under the slab foundation. If this leak goes undetected, you could be looking at exorbitant water bills and costly water damage repairs.
Fortunately, there are signs that can help tell you when you have a leak. These include:
- An increase in your water bills
- Water stains on the ceiling and walls
- Bubbling wall paint
- Mold and mildew growth
- Damp carpet or flooring
- The sound of trickling water when all faucets are off
- A moving water meter even with the main water off
