Other Residential Plumbing Leaks
In addition to your major plumbing appliances, there are many additional areas of your home that can experience leaks, including the following:
- Natural Gas Line Leaks – Natural gas heats the water in your boiler but can be very hazardous. Carbon monoxide gas is highly flammable and can be fatal in large quantities. One common sign of a natural gas leak is an odor that smells like rotten eggs. Be sure you have fully charged carbon monoxide monitors close to your appliances that use natural gas.
- Broken Water Lines – Your home’s water lines are located under the house or in your walls, so leaks often go undetected until signs of property damage become apparent. Broken water lines can cause severe property damage and cause a sudden spike in your water bill.
