• The Essentials of Leak Detection

    Hidden water leaks are a serious problem. Over time, even a very small leak can cause extensive water damage. That’s why it’s important that you learn how to detect a hidden plumbing leak so you can schedule immediate plumbing repair services. If you notice moldy odors or experience an unexplained spike in your water bill, follow these steps to determine if you have a hidden water leak.

    • Note the position of the water meter
    • Turn off all faucets, make sure the dishwasher and washing machine are not running, and make sure all hoses and faucets outside are turned off
    • Wait a few hours and check the water meter again
    • If the meter has changed despite all the water being off, you likely have a hidden leak
