How Is COVID-19 Wreaking Havoc on Your Plumbing Pipes? - Water Leak Detection Blog - Orlando, Florida | Leak Doctor - covid-19-5048236_1920There is never a good time for a leak!

It is easy to ignore the signs of a plumbing leak or even a high water bill, but in the end, the cost of a water intrusion can end up costing a small fortune. You may think your homeowners insurance would cover something like this, but in most cases it does not!

In ‘By the Number: Wasted Water Adds Up Drip By Drip’, Consumer Reports warns homeowners of the high cost of water leaks.

“Save water by fixing plumbing leaks.....10,000, Number of gallons of water the average American family wastes every year because of dripping faucets, running toilets, and other plumbing leaks, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which estimates that more than a trillion gallons of water leak from American homes every year.”

Unfortunately, piping infrastructure doesn't last forever, every day wear and tear, along with minerals in the water and poor installation, result in hairline crack and pinhole leaks.  Locating a water leak isn't always easy, especially if they are under a concrete foundation or between walls.
