Signs You Have a Water Leak
As mentioned above, it can be difficult to tell that a pipe is leaking if the water leak is small and the pipe is hidden. Here are some things you can look for when you’re doing water leak detection.
If you start to see the outline of dried water on a wall, ceiling, or floor, that means that there’s something going on behind or underneath that you need to know about. If you are buying a house or looking at a part of your house you don’t usually see, this is a good indicator that, at least at one point, there was a leak. You may want to explore further to see if anything is wrong with the pipes now.
If you look under your sink for the first time in a while and it smells musty, that’s a good sign that there’s a small leak under there somewhere. You can also feel for dampness, as a small drip may not even produce enough water to make things smell bad. Note, too, any inexplicable dampness in your kitchen and bathroom, and in walls where you know pipes run. This can be a sign of a water leak, too.
Do you find random puddles of water in your basement and you’re not sure where they came from? Maybe there’s often a small puddle in front of your dishwasher or washing machine. These can all be signs that there is a leak somewhere.
