Pipe leaks start small but it can cost Florida families and business owners hundreds of dollars in water bills and repairs. You’ll also have to worry about you and your family’s health and well-being as mold and mildew inevitably form in the walls, the flooring and ceilings. How do leaks form? There are quite a number of reasons:
- Cracked seals in the plumbing installations.
- Constant high water pressure.
- Old or decayed pipes.
- During wintertime, the presence of water in the pipes could cause freezing.
- Pipes made of copper that’s prone to developing pinhole leaks.
What’s worse is that the leak could be in the most inaccessible areas of your Florida home. You’d be lucky enough to have a leaky faucet that can be easily repaired or replaced, but how does one find a pinhole leak in the walls? You could be facing a faulty irrigation system, a slowly running toilet or a broken seal somewhere deep underground, and you’d be none the wiser.
How to Spot Hidden Leaks
How does a Florida homeowner find out if there’s a leak in his or her property? Here are a few sound suggestions:
Inspect the visible plumbing inside and outside the house. Look in the basement, in the washing machine, the water heaters, the toilets and under the sinks. Get to your supply line and see if there are any drips. A puddle is a surefire sign that there’s a leak nearby. Be on the lookout for green patches of mold and mildew. Finally, see if some of your appliances are leak-free, such as evaporative coolers and home humidifiers.
Turn off all the water in your house and keep a close eye on your water meter. Is it moving even when you know that no one is using water?
