How To Find A Hidden Water Leak

Detecting a water leak in its early stage can save you money and prevent leaking disasters. There are multiple ways to help you save time and money by deciding on contacting a plumber.

Check if your water meter is changing, by turning off all the running water in your home and make sure nothing is running including washing machines, faucets, dishwashers and taps. If it does change it’s because it’s a fast-moving leak. If it doesn’t change come back in a couple of more hours to see if it does. If so with all the water off, it’s a slower leak.

The leak could be anywhere underground. Checking to see how much water is occurring in your home. If a family of four is using more than 45,000 liters of water per month you tend to have a massive water leak in your plumbing system. If you see the bill rising more and more per month, it’s the leak in your system to blame. Your water bill should consistently stay the same from month to month. If it’s gone up, you must pay for the water bill.

Gold Coast Leaking Pipe
Toilets can sum up to 30 percent of your water use, just check to ensure all pipes are running properly. To test for leaks, add a few drops of food coloring to your toilet tank and wait 10 minutes.

If the color shows up in your bowl, then you have a leak allowing water to flow from the tank to your drain without ever flushing the bowl. Locating the hidden water leaks isn’t always easy. You know you have a leak, but you need to find the location.

Good thing is there are plumbers who deal with leaks on a daily basis. Plumbers have a list of the most common places to look in a home and where they can occur. Can occur in toilets, the rubber parts in your toilet can become worn. This can cause a much slower leak. Underneath sinks are rarely checked, and sometimes slow leaks happen and go unnoticed.

Bath handles and shower handles, if they are old, they may not shut off the water completely, causing a slow behind walls. Washing machines can also cause small leaks in your washing machine hose. This can cause major issues if it tends to break. Replace the hose potentially with stainless steel.

Gold Coast Leaking Tap
If you still can’t find it follow the drops of water. It can be easy to spot from taps and pipes that are visible. However, the challenge is finding the leak in your home.

For example, behind walls, basements, underneath floors, in concrete slabs, and water intrusion in roofs. Leak detectors use the latest non-invasive leak detection technology the High Frequency Ultra Sonic Listening Device to detect precisely where even the smallest leak is coming from.

The greatest advantage of our listening devices is that we don’t need to punch holes into walls or drill into concrete to find the leak, our listening devices can detect leaks through walls and concrete.
