Have a Plumbing Leak? Here’s What You Need to Do

Have a Plumbing Leak? Here’s What You Need to Do

If you’ve noticed damp spots on your carpet or low water pressure in your bathroom, you could be dealing with a plumbing or slab leak.

While our first thought when we encounter such problems is to Google for quick DIY fixes, these solutions are temporary and can lead to bigger and costlier problems.

But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a more permanent and better solution!

Here are a couple of things you can do to address the problem:

Find Out Where the Leak is

The first thing you need to do is locate the leak. Don’t panic if there’s a crack on the pipeline of your home. You might not have to get your pipeline changed completely. If the cracks are minor, they can be fixed.

A slab leak specialist can guide you and inspect how bad the crack and damage is.

Turn Off the Water Supply

On average, toilet leaks can waste up to 200 gallons of water every day. That’s 6,000 gallons per month and will cost you over $70 in utility bills.

If there’s flooding, the first thing you should do is switch off the water valve. This will help prevent further damage to the structure and furnishings of your home.

Make sure you switch off the water heater as well as all the electronics of your home.

Your water valve should be in the basement.
