Don't Let A Water or Plumbing Leak Ruin Your Holidays

Don't Let A Water or Plumbing Leak Ruin Your Holidays - Water Leak Detection Blog - Orlando, Florida | Leak Doctor - christmas-g36c376207_1920The holidays are about making memories and celebrating with friends and family. Unfortunately, this is also a time when water pipes are under more pressure, from both the extra usage and change in weather. 

Water leaks that aren't obvious are typically the most dangerous. The longer a leak is allowed to go undetected the higher the repair cost. 

Which is why it’s so 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 may be 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's time to contact a professional water leak detection service.

Signs of a Water Leak Include:

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.

Unexplained moisture on the floor, or loose or buckling tile, water spots on the walls or ceiling, or mold in the drywall.

Wet or muddy spots in the yard, if it hasn't been raining, bulging or protruding drywall, peeling or flaking paint.
