Anything containing water has the potential to leak. Plumbing leaks can occur when a drain pipe develops a hole from corrosion, or a drain line is clogged and the water seeks a place to go. Leaks can also occur on water supply lines due to constant high water pressure, and continuous pulling and pushing actions that weaken pipes.
Signs of Leaks
- Water stains or damage on a ceiling or wall
- Water pooled at the base of a toilet, at the base of a faucet, or under a sink
- Standing water anywhere in a house
- A mold smell under a sink or a musty smell in the basement or anywhere in the house
- An unusually high water bill
At times it can be difficult to tell where a leak is coming from since a leak may not originate from an obvious place. It could come from a radiant floor heater, a radiator, a hot water tank, a dishwasher, an ice-maker, or from gutters filled with debris, and more.
