Some plumbing problems are obvious. Issues like clogged toilets, slow drains, and boilers breakdowns are hard to ignore. Other plumbing problems, like leaks, can be much more elusive. They can develop out of sight, in walls, floors, and ceilings, persisting for some time—and causing damage—before they’re noticed.

You need to act fast if you face a leak, to help you ensure you don’t miss a leaks, here are some common warning signs of water leaks in homes.

If you notice any of these signs you have a leak, contact an emergency plumber in Birmingham for expert leak detection and leak repair.

  • Water Bill Has Increased
    Have your water bills suddenly increased? If so, you could have a leak somewhere in your home. To make sure the increase isn’t due to a seasonal change, compare your current water bills to those from the same month last year.
  • Water Meter Continuously Going Up
    Is your water meter continuously running even though you’re not using water in or outside of your home? This is another red flag that you could have a leak.
  • Mildew and Mould Appearing ?
    Damp spots on floors, walls, and/or ceilings are often tell-tale signs of a leak. These damp spots can give rise to mould and the musty odours that come with it. If you find that you have a musty smell around the home, regardless of how often you clean your home, you may have a leaking pipe.
  • Foundation Cracks
    As your home settles over time, cracks can start to develop in various places. If, however, you begin to notice foundation cracks suddenly developing, you could have a leak. The water that continually seeps out of your pipes can weaken a home’s structural components, which can cause cracks in the foundation, walls, and other areas.
  • Wet Spots
    Visually inspect the area near sinks, tubs, and toilets. Do you see wet spots? Or is the floor around these plumbing features discolored? If so, take it as a warning sign that you could have a leaking pipe.
