Leaking pipe warning signs

There should be signs of a pipe leaking before any serious damage happens. Noticing these will save you a lot of time and money. They often include:

• Wet spots
• Your water bill going up more than usual
• Musty-smelling rooms
• Visible mould or mildew

If you have any of these concerns, again it is always best to get it checked by the professionals before it escalates.

What to do when you think you have a leak?

As you know, water loves nothing more than running downhill. This can mean that water often runs to a number of locations before dripping. The best way to assess where the leak is coming from is to start by drying the area thoroughly. This will help highlight the specific area that is leaking; whether it is the pipe or joint. Knowing where the leak is coming from will help the plumber when they arrive.

Then you need to turn off the water supply to that pipe. If it’s a case of turning off the water supply to your property, simply turn your water valve clockwise to close. The valve will usually be in your kitchen or bathroom. This will prevent any new water adding to the issue, depending on which pipe the leak is coming from.

Now it’s time to give the experienced plumbers at HandyExperts a call.
