The holiday season can put extra stress on your plumbing. A water leak in a residential home can be very troublesome. Even a small water leak can be very destructive and they can happen without the homeowner even noticing! The longer a leak is allowed to go undetected the higher the repair cost.
Though many water leaks are apparent, there are even more that are not as obvious. It is important to routinely check exposed water pipework and joints for any moisture and visible water loss. Water leaks don't have to be expensive to fix, usually some sealant or tightening a joint maybe all that is necessary, but it can save lots of money down the road.
If you suspect a water leak, but not able to find the source. It is time to contact a professional water leak detection service.

A higher than normal water bill, the sound of running water when the water is turned off, discolored or odd tasting water, or a drop in water pressure.
