Detecting At-Home Water Leaks

by | Feb 8, 2021 | Plumbing & Plumbers

It is important to make sure you know how to detect a leak in your plumbing system inside of your home. The best possible way to detect a leak in your plumbing is by checking your water meter first. If you are not sure where your water meter is located, you will want to call your local water company. Your next step is to make sure that there is no water that is being used on the outside or the inside of the home. Once that is completed, you should then check your water meter to see if it is moving which would indicate a leak.

Checking for Leaks

Another way to check for a leak is to check the meter and then wait another 2-3 hours before checking it again. If there is a change in the reading, then you probably have a leak. Once you have determined that you actually have a leak, then it is time to shut off the water valve. You can typically find this outside in a garage or near a basement. If you cannot find where the leak is, then it is time for you to call a water leak service in Renton WA.

Leaking Toilets

Leaks in your toilet waste hundreds of gallons of water and you typically can’t even hear them. The good news is that most toilet leaks do not cost a lot of money for you to repair. You can purchase dye tabs to check to see if there is a leak which is fairly easy to do.
