4 Signs You Have a Hidden Leak

May 10, 2022 | Blog

With all the busyness of daily life, the last thing you want on your hands is a water leak. Hidden leaks can cause damage to our homes, wreak havoc on our wallets and just be downright stressful. So what are the warning signs of a hidden leak in your home and how can you prevent them?

At Hi-Tech Plumbing & Leak Detect, we’ve been in the leak detection business for years, and we’re here to share our knowledge with you. Read below to learn more!

What Are The Common Signs Of a Hidden Leak?

When it comes to hidden leaks, the best detection tool is knowing the warning signs. Some common ones are listed below.

Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure in your home is a troublesome issue to have and is a warning sign that you may have leaky pipes on your hands. Plumbing leaks reroute the flow of water into your home and can spike your energy bills when you routinely use more water to make up for it.

Damaged Walls or Ceilings

Moisture from a leak can cause some serious damage to your home. Because pipes are everywhere throughout your house, leaky spots can happen anywhere.

If you’ve noticed that an area of your ceiling is drooping or that any part of your interior walls are discolored, a leak is most likely the culprit.

Mold or Mildew

Another unfortunate side effect of a hidden leak is mold and mildew growth. This can actually be one of the most telling signs that something is amiss. Mold and mildew flourish in moist areas, and leaky water gives them the perfect chance to do this.

Mold and mildew growth in your home is serious business. It can drastically affect the health and safety of you and your family. If you suspect mold or mildew growth, give us a call today.

Increase in Your Bill

Leaks are a major water waster. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average household wastes about 10,000 gallons of water yearly due to leaks in some form. As you may have guessed, this will cause your utility bill to spike, seemingly out of nowhere if your leak is undetected by you.

If your bill has recently skyrocketed, a hidden leak may be the culprit. Call one of our professional technicians to come out and take a look, so your wallet can take a breather.

How Can Leaks Be Prevented?

Preventative maintenance for leaks is simple enough and can be easily added to your home to-do list. Making sure that you know where your main water shut-off valve is key to getting ahead of watery disasters. If you can locate this valve, you can immediately turn it off at the first sign of danger.

Some other helpful tips when trying to prevent leaks are:

  • Keep your appliances maintained
  • Have water detection devices installed
  • Routinely check your water pressure
  • Monitor your water bill
  • Maintain trees and vegetation around the exterior of your house

What Our Customers Are Saying

I Highly Recommend This Company!

I know about this company because my neighbors needed plumbing repair but of course the problem was located in my backyard. Blaine and Joe were fabulous! They did their very best to put my yard back as it was and to make sure my fence was secured so my dogs wouldn’t escape. And they were really kind and understanding of the situation. I highly recommend this company!

Tea L.

Professional and Friendly

I have had Hi-Tech repair two hot water slab leaks in my home this year. Both times they were prompt in scheduling the initial inspection and the actual repair, clear on the costs of the project, and what all work would be done. And on top of that, everyone has been very professional and friendly. I would 100% recommend them for any plumbing project you may have!
