How You Can Check for Leaks?
If you want to determine if you have a leak in your plumbing system, you can check over your water meter first. Once you have established that all the water is shut off in the house, and that no water is currently in use outside, check the leak indicator to see if it is moving. Depending on the brand of your meter, the leak indicator will either look like a small triangular shaped dial or a small silver wheel that rotates when water is flowing. If the dial is moving, you likely have a leak. Our plumbing contractors can definitively determine if there is a leak, so if you think a leak is present based on your water meter readings, call us for leak detection and plumbing leak repair in Gaithersburg/Rockville, MD.
Types of Plumbing Leaks
We Can Repair These Types of Water Leaks
These some of the most common water leaks inside the house occur around tubs, showers, faucets, toilets, sink pipes, and in the garbage disposal. A faulty seal is the most common reason your tub is leaking. Splashing is a natural result of bathing, and with a faulty seal around your bathtub, this water can accumulate and cause some real damage. Mold can grow on your floor, or even worse, on your subfloor. Luckily, our plumbers can provide leak repair to prevent mold growth, structural damage, and more. We can provide repairs for these kinds of leaks.
Leaking Tub or Shower. A faulty seal is the most common reason your tub is leaking. If you notice a leak, have it repaired immediately.
Leaky Faucet. A leaking faucet doesn’t cause too much damage, generally speaking. When a faucet leaks, the water drains down the sink itself or pools on the countertop.
Leaking Sink Pipe. The pipes under your sink will require your attention due to their likely proximity to your bathroom cabinets. If you notice mold growth, and the presence of an inordinate amount of water, it’s time to call a plumber and assess the damage.
Leaking Toilet. There are two ways your toilet can be leaking – around the seal, or internally. These types of leaks typically go unnoticed except through a slightly higher monthly water bill.
Garbage Disposal. A leak from the garbage disposal will smell particularly foul, due to the presence of rotting food. Mold can also grow in these areas with some rapidity.
