Prevent Water Loss Inside your Home

Water loss can cause significant damage to homes, especially when it goes undetected. It’s important for every homeowner to pay close attention to the key areas inside their homes where water loss can cause damage and expense.water leak | water loss | flood | plumbing leak | leaking water

Kitchen water loss:

  • Dishwasher – check for leaks under the sink where the hose connects to the water supply. Look for evidence of leaks, such as discolored, warped, or soft flooring materials, or water damage to nearby cabinets.
  • Refrigerator – if your refrigerator has an ice-maker, make sure the hose connection is securely attached to the water supply line. Also, a wet spot on the floor may be a sign of a crimped ice-maker line about to burst.
  • Sink – replace deteriorated caulk around sinks, and check the pipes under the sink for leaks. A slow-draining pipe may indicate a partially blocked drain that needs cleaning.

Bathroom water loss:

  • Showers and bathtubs – remove and replace deteriorated or cracked caulk and grout. Water can leak through these damaged sealants, causing stains or soft areas around nearby walls and floors.
  • Sinks – check under the sink for leaks from water supply lines or drainpipes.
  • Toilets – clogs can result from too much toilet paper or objects such as hanging bowl deodorants.

Basement, Laundry or Utility Room water loss:

  • Washing machine – check hoses regularly for bulging, cracking, fraying, and leaks around hose ends. Replace the hose if a problem is found or every 4 years as part of a proactive maintenance program. To help make sure the hose doesn’t kink, leave at least 4 inches (or 11 centimeters) between the water connections and the back of the washing machine.
  • Water Heater – most water heaters last 8 to 12 years. Wet spots on the floor or a rusted tank may signal a leak. Water heaters should be installed on the lowest level of the home, next to a floor drain, or inside a drain pan piped to the floor drain.
  • Sump pump – battery-operated back-up sump pumps can help protect against power failure or failure of the primary pump. Test the sump pump before the start of each wet season. Sump pumps are not intended to last more than 10 years, and must have some components replaced or serviced within those 10 years. It’s important to check your sump pump regularly.

Stopping leaks at the source to prevent water loss:water leak | water loss | plumbing leak | leaking water | burst pipe | busted pipe | leaking pipe

  • Check for hidden leaks. First, turn off faucets and all water-using appliances, and don’t flush toilets for one hour. The, record the water meter reading. If the flow indicator (triangular or diamond-shaped rotating button) is spinning or the meter reading has changed while not water is being used, a leaking pipe may exist.
