Leaky pipes can be serious and may result in water damage to your home. Knowing the signs of leaks in your pipes will play a role in preventing a leak from becoming more serious. If you live in the Plymouth service area, The Plumbing Doctor is ready to help with leak detection and repair services.
Signs of Leaky Pipes
- A metered customer may experience an increase in usage
- Cracking in any paved areas of your property
- Sinkholes or potholes
- Dirt or air in your water
- Dampness or wetness in your garden area in a dry spell
- Obvious water pressure reduction
If you experience any of these problems around your property, it is unlikely that you can fix it yourself. You will need an experienced plumber to find the leak and make the appropriate repairs.
Where Leaking Pipes Can Happen
Water leaks can happen anywhere there is a plumbing system inside or outside of your home. You can experience a leak in your loft’s tank, a pipe that burst in your garden, or in your bathroom or kitchen.
Water leaks are not exclusive to homes. Business offices, retail stores, and other structures where there is a plumbing system are also at risk. Leaky pipes, no matter where they start, often turn into very costly repairs if you neglect to get a professional plumber to examine them immediately.
