Four Signs You May Have A Water Leak

Updated: Apr 10

According to the EPA, A leaky faucet that drips at the rate of one drip per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons per year. That's the amount of water needed to take more than 180 showers!

Not to mention, you pay for all of this extra water usage. What are the key signs to look for in a sneaky leak that lies aloof?

Abnormally High Water Bills

Normally, this is the first sign that something is out of the ordinary. If your water bill goes up and you know your usage hasn’t increased, you could have a hidden leak. 

Water Meter Constantly Spinning

Once that first high water bill comes in most homeowners will check their meter. If no appliances or water is being used in the home and the dial freely spins you more than likely have a leak. 

Water Seeping Into the Home From Walls or the Slab Itself

Sometimes, depending on the leaks location, water can work its way into the home from the leak and spread to other areas. 

Bad Odors

If you have a leak on a drain line that doesn’t actively use water but rather deals with the waste you may begin to notice an odor from escaping gases and waste. You may even begin to smell microbial growth if the location is suitable for mold growth.
