Signs of Leaking Pipes
Some of the common warning signs that there is an underlying leak include:
- Dripping faucets – you might not see the drips happening, but if you see signs of discoloration or hear drips from faucets used less frequently, start paying attention to that particular faucet.
- Rust or puddles of water – whether it’s at the base of faucets, around any sink, tub, or shower drain, o on the floor beneath a faucet, reddish rust or water puddles are an instant red flag.
- Unexpectedly high water bills – if your water bill is rising without using more water than normal, consider this to be an indication that something is off.
- Squeaking taps – if you turn your faucets on or off and hear persistent squeaking noises, it might be a sign of something bigger to address.
- Rotten, moldy food odors – you might smell leaky pipes before hearing or seeing them – if something smells like rotting food, it could be a problem with the plumbing.
The minute you notice water dripping from your faucet or pipes, don’t hesitate to reach out!
