The Signs of a Leak

Looking for leak detection? If you’re not sure whether or not a leak exists in your plumbing, there are a few ways to find out. While some leaks are obvious, hidden leaks can wreak havoc on your plumbing system and are often left undetected until it’s too late. It is important to remember that the signs of a leak vary depending on the severity of the issue. Here are a few things to look out for:

  • High water bills
  • Mold or mildew on walls
  • Soft spots or bubbling paint
  • Stained or damaged walls or ceilings
  • Sound of running water

I would recommend Rick's plumbing ,because of them.

Different Types of Plumbing Leaks

Not all line leaks are created equal. Plumbing leaks can happen to even the most cautious homeowners. Knowing the different types of plumbing leaks is a great way to be educated on how to prevent them – and how to stop them quickly if and when they occur.

  • Water Line Leak. A water line leak can lead to extensive property damage if not found and fixed promptly. Water line leaks can often be detected by a hissing or rumbling sound in your pipes, or by a sudden drop in water pressure. In the case of a water line leak, we recommend shutting off the water from the source and giving us a call. Our professional leak detection specialists are available 24/7 for every emergency plumbing need.
  • Gas Leak. Gas leaks are a potentially dangerous situation and one that should be acted upon quickly. If you suspect a gas leak within your home, do not attempt a DIY leak repair! In the case of a gas leak, quickly open up windows and doors, leave the area and evacuate all members of your home, and call the gas company. Then, call your local Rick’s Plumbing technicians so we can get started on solving the problem.
  • Slab Leak. Slab leaks, depending on their severity, are one of the most costly leaks to repair. Slab leaks occur when a line leak occurs under the concrete slab of your home’s foundation, causing water loss and potentially extensive property damage. Whether caused by water lines or sewer lines, Rick’s Plumbing has the expertise to fix the problem quickly to prevent further damage to your home.
  • Hidden Water Leak. Hidden leaks can be catastrophic for your home’s plumbing system. When left undetected, a hidden water leak can lead to extreme water loss, property damage, and, as a result, an increase in your utility bills. Rick’s Plumbing employs professional leak detection specialists to perform leak locating services and find hidden leaks before they wreak unnecessary havoc on your home’s plumbing. Whether it is a utility line leak, a problematic leaky pipe, or an underground hidden leak, our leak locating services will get to the source of the problem.
