While there are many people who recognize some of the common signs that their Denver home may have a leak, there are a number of things that they may not understand, such as locations of leaks. Even though you may know how to recognize a leak, understanding some of the most common locations they arise can help you confirm your suspicions. Here are some of the most common places in your home you may recognize a potential leak.
Under the Sink
Check under your kitchen and bathroom sinks to determine if there is an issue that needs to be fixed. You will be able to notice a pool of water forming or any items you have may be wet. This is one of the most common locations a leak will occur because the sinks tend to take a lot of damage from food, hair, and other debris.
Walls Where Plumbing Exists
Check the walls to determine if there is a pipe burst deep in the system. You may notice some discoloration of the wall, water damage, or even mold forming. You need to take action quickly if you recognize any signs of serious plumbing problems in the walls as it can cause significant damage to the structure of the home.
A consistently running toilet may be an indication of a leak in the plumbing pipes. Leaks can either be evident towards the bottom of the toilet, or from the pipes in the back. You can also check the tank to ensure that it is filling up correctly.
