Have a Water Leak? Schuler Plumbing Can Help.
When you envision a water leak in your home, you may think of a broken pipe under a kitchen or bathroom sink spraying water across the room. If every water leak was that obvious, the need for water leak detection services would be minimal. However, it’s rare that water leaks make themselves that obvious, meaning that water leak detection is a very specialized, important area of plumbing. When you have a water leak in your home, there’s a high possibility that it will take place inside your walls, behind plumbing fixtures, or even under the slab that your home rests on. When that’s the case, you don’t have time to waste. Working with a water leak detection plumber is of utmost importance. Fortunately, Schuler Plumbing offers a wide variety of plumbing services, including detecting water leaks.
Signs You May Have a Water Leak
Most water leaks don’t result in water spewing across your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room. That means that you will need to be aware of the signs that your home has a water leak. Perhaps the most obvious sign of a water leak is an inexplicable increase in your monthly water bill. While some bills fluctuate wildly, water bills generally stay pretty close to the same monthly total. According to studies, the average water bill in the U.S. is $70.93. If you notice that your water bill has suddenly increased, you probably have a water leak somewhere in your home.
Additionally, you should schedule water leak detection if you notice a sharp decrease in your home’s water pressure. When there is a leak anywhere in your home’s plumbing system, there is less water available to come through the faucets or appliances that you’re trying to use. While water leaks aren’t the only cause of poor water pressure, they can certainly be a telltale sign.
Finally, you can often find signs of a water leak by looking at the ceiling, walls, and floors of your home. Depending on the layout of your home, you may have water lines that run through the walls, or even between the floor of a second story and the ceiling of a ground floor. If you notice mold, mildew, or wet spots in the ceiling of the ground floor, a water leak is probably to blame. Additionally, if you notice stains on your drywall or wallpaper peeling, there is probably a water leak within the walls of your home. Floors that are bowing up and showing signs of damage is another sign. If you see any of those structural signs, you should contact a water leak detection plumber immediately.
Why Fixing a Water Leak is Crucial
If there is a water leak in your home, you don’t have time to waste. There are multiple reasons to quickly call for water leak detection if you suspect a leak in your plumbing system. First, and most importantly, water leaks put you and your family’s health in danger. When water leaks are left unresolved, mold and mildew form quickly. These types of bacterial growth are dangerous, especially if you or someone in your home has asthma, allergies, or other respiratory issues.
The second reason to have water leaks fixed quickly involves the health of your home. When water leaks into the inner parts of your home, the structural integrity is compromised. Do you remember how we discussed damaged drywall, wet spots on ceilings, and damaged flooring? Those are all symptoms of a much larger problem. If left untreated, water leaks in drywall can lead to your walls literally coming apart. It can also damage the studs which serve as the inner framework of your home.
Finally, it’s important to have a water leak fixed quickly because you don’t want to keep paying for water that you’re not using. As we mentioned earlier, the average water bill is around $71 per month. You don’t want to pay anymore than that if you don’t have to. Responding quickly to a potential water leak ensures that you’re keeping as much money in your pocket as possible. Owning a home is already expensive. There’s no need to let more money wash away.
