Stay Proactive and Look For These Signs

Your Best Defense Against Plumbing & Water Leaks - Water Leak Detection Blog - Orlando, Florida | Leak Doctor - 1(22)Annual inspection of your plumbing can catch undetected water leaks before they cause damage. Be on the look out for unexplained moisture or brown stains on the ceiling or walls. Mold is another culprit of a hidden leak, high moisture can cause serious health problems and should be addressed as soon as possible.

Check the Color of Your Water

The next time you turn on the tap water, fill a clear glass and take a good look at what color the water. Also, check the water in the bathrooms and laundry room. If you notice a yellowish tint or even a brown hue, this is a good indication your pipes are having a problem.

Dripping Faucets

If you turn the faucet or shower off and water is still dripping, don't ignore it, get it fixed!  Just a small drip can add up to a lot of water.

High Water Bills

If you notice your water bill is higher than usual or slowly rising every month, it is important to investigate the problem. Repairing the pipe can end up saving you a ton of money later.
