Do You Have An Undetected Leak?

If you suspect that your home may have a leak, but you are not completely sure, here are some ways to find out:

  • Check your water meter.
  • For most homeowners, the meter is located outside near your stop tap, which will turn off your water supply.
  • While reading the water meter, make sure there is no water usage inside the home.
  • Measure the water usage over a period of time and compare the differences between each measure.
  • Keep an increment of at least 20 minutes to an hour between each measure.
  • If you notice that the number is significantly different, then it is very likely that you have a leak in your home.
  • Call us for assistance immediately, and we’ll send someone right over to give you a hand!

Common Leaks

  • Most leaks are from the sink faucet or toilet.
  • Sink leaks are usually detectable and visible to most homeowners.
  • Obvious signs of leaks for a sink include a dripping faucet, puddles around the rim of the faucet, a wet floor, or a flood of water around the pipes underneath the sink cabinets.
  • To detect a leaky toilet, use food coloring drops.
    • First, you will need to remove the toilet’s tank lid.
    • Then, pour a few drops of the food coloring into the toilet’s water tank and wait for half an hour.
    • Do not flush the toilet while you are waiting.
    • Finally, if you see any of the dyed water leak out into the toilet bowl, it confirms that your toilet has a leak.
    • Other common issues include drain leaks, and bath and shower leaks.

What To Do When You Have An Emergency Leak

  • If you have a leak, you will have to find the main water valve for that specific appliance and turn it off.
  • For a sink, the valve may be located underneath the cabinet or counter.
  • A toilet’s water valve will be located underneath the toilet and against the wall.
  • In the case of a washing machine appliance, the valves will be behind the machine connected to the back wall.
  • In each situation, you will need to turn the valve clockwise to turn the water off.
  • Lastly, if you are having problems with other areas in your household, you can turn off the entire water supply for the house.

If You Have Bursted Pipes

  • First, you will have to locate the main water supply valve and turn off the water.
  • Then, find the source of the bursted pipe.
  • One way to tell if the bursted pipe is located in the walls is if the ceiling or drywall is displaying water stains.
  • Therefore, use towels to clean up any puddles, and buckets to contain any leakage.
  • As you are waiting for the plumber to arrive, you can create a temporary solution if you found the leak for the pipe.
  • Plumber’s tape and plumber’s putty are effective tools that can help enclose a pipe’s small hole or crack.
  • Be sure to let your plumber know the situation and inform them of where you located the busted pipe.
  • In the case of a bursted or broken pipe, A-1 Speedy Rooter and Plumbing, Inc. also offers repiping services.

Bernie and his Technician were great. I had three plumbers diagnose my issue and couldn't detect the problem. Bernie came out, diagnosed the problem within 10 minutes and charged me a reasonable price. I will definitely refer him to friends and neighbors.
