Water Leaks drain your wallet!

Here’s a quick guide to finding and fixing water leaks in your home. Imagine a hole the size of the period in this sentence. A small leak this size wastes 4,000 gallons a month.   That’s enough water for a shower every day!

  • Sinks – Leaking faucets can have a worn or improperly fitted washer. water leak | water loss | flood | plumbing leak | leaking waterWasher-less faucets need to be rebuilt or replaced.
  • Toilets – If your toilet is continually draining and refilling, the plunger ball or flapper valve probably needs replacing. If the water flow doesn’t stop after flushing, you need to adjust or replace the float ball.
  • Refrigerators – Small puddles under the refrigerator and excessive ice accumulation in the freezer means the ice-making unit isn’t working properly.
  • Dishwashers – Water on the floor around the unit is an indicator of a leak.  It could be a hose, or an internal mechanism.
  • Hot Water Heaters – Water dripping down the side of the tank and accumulating on the floor below is a sign that the pressure valve release isn’t working properly. Water underneath the water heater indicates a leaking tank and replacement is necessary.
  • Washing Machines – Water on the floor around the machine indicates a leak.  Inspection of the hose and valves is important.
  • Outside Faucets – Winter weather causes outdoor faucets containing residual water to freeze.
  • Water Line systems – Look for soft spots on your lawn. This is an indication of a leak flowing from a water service line to your home.
  • Water Lines – The sound of water running inside your home indicates the water lines inside the walls could have a pinhole leak.
