Summer has arrived, which is leaving most of us looking for ways to stay cool. Some of the best ways to keep yourself more comfortable in the coming months will involve water use: taking lukewarm showers, enjoying a day at the pool, and drinking lots and lots and LOTS of water.
Water is vital for pretty obvious reasons. It stands to reason that wasting water is a less than ideal situation, especially if it is happening in your home. For one thing, it drives up your bills. For another, it lets a precious resource flow away from where it is needed! We aren’t talking about the kids leaving the tap on while they brush their teeth right now though (we’d suggest stopping that habit either way). Today we are talking about the problem of wasting water via a pipe leak in your home. Here’s what you need to do to find it and stop it.
Do You Have a Leak in Your Home?
If you have a leak in your home, you’ll want to get it fixed ASAP. Here are the signs to watch for that will alert you to this problem.
- Low water pressure: If you have a faucet or other appliance with low water pressure, it may be an issue caused by a leak in your pipes that lets water escape before it reaches that outlet.
- The sound of running water without a destination: Hearing water running but without any reason for it? This is likely due to a leak creating a draw for water somewhere in your home.
- An overactive water meter: When your water meter is running for no reason, you probably have a leak. What’s more, this is a reminder that leaking pipes will end up costing you a lot in the long run.
- The sight or scent of mold or mildew: If a leak goes undetected for too long, it can create an environment that is perfect for the growth of mold or mildew. If you smell or see mold in your home, make sure to check for leaks as a cause.
