When Should You Call for Water Leak Detection?

As we stated above, a clear sign of a leak is a sudden drop of water pressure. But this is not the only sign, and we want our customers to be able to get help when they need it. Leaks are among the most common problems in any plumbing system, but many homeowners don’t even know when they have one, since the majority of their pipes are hidden behind walls or beneath the property.

So if you hear running water but no appliances are on, this is one sign you have a leak. Or, if you have an otherwise unexplained warm spot on your floor, you may have a slab leak—which is a leak that occurs below the foundation of your home and can cause significant property damage if left to develop further.

Our Santa Barbara, CA plumbers use a variety of techniques to detect exactly where your leak is. We can use acoustic technology to listen for signs of an underground leak, and video pipe technology to get a visual on any plumbing problems.

Other Signs You Have a Leak

To locate and fix a leak, you need the assistance of a pro. However, there are some more signs you can watch out for in addition to those we mentioned above. These include:

  • Increasing Water Bills: Chances are, you have somewhat of an idea of how much water your family uses each month. Look over the history of your bills and if the amount has begun to rise, yet you can’t account for it, you probably are dealing with a leak.
  • Discoloration: Check the drywall throughout your home. If you see brown or reddish marks, it could very well mean that water is seeping out behind it from a pipe. You might also see these marks on the ceiling.
  • Warped Floorboards: We mentioned slab leaks above—this is another indicator that they may be occurring. If leaks happen under the floorboards, it will cause warping and bumps in the flooring.
