If your water bills are abnormally over a period yet you have not changed your water usage, this could a glaring sign of a leaking pipe in the home. When this happens, consider hiring a plumber to try and find out the location of the hidden leak.

Reduced water pressure

When there is an apparent reduction in the pressure and volume of water reaching your house, you may want to check the piping. A leak will divert some of the water meant to serve you. The reduction in volume and pressure will, of course, depend on the size and number of leaks.

Stained or damaged ceilings and walls

When the piping system inside your house develops leaks, the water will flow through the walls and ceilings. Depending on the amount of water and the duration it has been leaking, this may result in serious damages. While it is true that high humidity levels can also bring about these problems, when you combine this with other signs, you will know whether there is a leaking pipe.

Mold and mildew on non-shower walls

Mold and mildew are known to thrive in moist, dark places. A leaking pipe will create such perfect conditions for this. Therefore, whenever you see mold or mildew on non-shower walls, this is a clear sign of a leaking pipe.

Persistent odors

Water that accumulates gives off a musty smell. Be sure to look out for this sign as well.

In case you identify any of these signs, it is important to call a professional plumber so that the pipe can be fixed. Trying to fix the problem yourself may sometimes work to conceal a bigger problem.
