Signs of a Water Leak
When a pipe bursts, whether due to freezing temperatures or some other factor, it’s pretty obvious. You’ll notice gushing water and may even be able to see the broken pipe. However, small pipe leaks can be much harder to detect—but they are no less serious. It’s important that you’re able to identify the signs of a hidden water leak so that you can call for professional pipe repairs at the first trace of a problem, whether it's in your kitchen, bathroom, or anywhere else in your home.
Some of the most common signs of a hidden water leak include:
- Unexplained increases in your water bill
- Hearing the sound of running water when faucets are turned off
- Unusually lush patches in your lawn or damp areas of your yard
- Changes in the water meter even when water isn’t being used
- Visible water damage to floors, ceilings, and walls
- Mold and/or mildew growth
If you come across these or other signs of a problem contact our Wheaton plumber as soon as possible to schedule leak detection services. Our technicians have the training and experience to quickly locate the source of any hidden leaks and make the necessary pipe repairs.
How to Prevent Burst Pipes
If you’ve ever dealt with a burst pipe, you know what a headache it can be. When a pipe bursts somewhere on your property, you have no other choice but to stop what you’re doing and call a plumber. One of the most common causes of burst pipes is freezing temperatures. When the water inside pipes freezes, it expands, causing the pipe to rupture. Once the water thaws, you’ve got a flooding problem on your hands.
Luckily, there are a few things you can do to help prevent frozen pipes:
- Insulate exposed pipes with heat tape, pipe sleeves, or other similar materials
- If you have a swimming pool, drain it during the winter months
- Drain water from sprinkler lines during colder months
- Disconnect and drain all hoses before closing the cutoff valve
- Allow water to slowly trickle out of faucets rather than shutting them off entirely
- Keep your home comfortably warm to avoid too-cold temps indoors
Of course, even with the proper precautionary measures, pipes can still freeze. If you’re dealing with a burst pipe, don’t delay! Call Precision Today as soon as possible to avoid costly water damage. Our team is prepared to provide you with the speedy, long-lasting solution you need. When it comes to pipe repairs in Wheaton, we’re second to none!
