Few things can ruin a home’s interior and foundation faster than standing water. Homeowners dread pipe leaks because they spell disaster for your home’s structural fitness and your family’s well-being.

That’s why the moment you notice water damage where the cause is not immediately known, you should call in a professional plumber to help with leak detection and repair.

Sometimes, the rainy season might be to blame for groundwater in basements, but often the culprit is a leaky pipe. Read on to learn some signs that a pipe is leaking or simply give our expert Brooklyn plumbers a call today!

Standing Water

If there are random puddles where there is no exterior cause, chances are that a pipe may be damaged within the walls of your home. Remember that water takes the path of least resistance, so the puddle may be further away from the damaged pipe than you think.

Water Marks

Puffy plaster or stains on a ceiling, wall or floor can mean damage from a pipe. The leak may not be bad enough to see standing water, but the tell-tale signs of watermarks are an indication that a pipe is leaking.


If you have dampness on the walls or smell a musty odor under your sinks, this could also be a sign of a leaky pipe. The issue may not be enough to cause a puddle but still needs to be attended to as soon as possible.
