Signs of Water Leak
What are the signs of a water leak? Well besides the obvious pooling in
the basement or water pipe spraying water, the outside of your home can
be a great indicator of a leak. Moss or greener vegetation around the
home could indicate damaged pipes, valves, or even sprinklers. Toilets
are one of the leading culprits of leaks inside the home. To check if
your toilet is leaking, simply put a couple drops of red food coloring
in the tank of the toilet and wait about 20 minutes. If any red dye shows
up in the bowl of the toilet then you have a leak. Another sign of a water
leak may be water around the base of the toilet or wet spots occurring
on the ceiling of your home.
Different Kinds of Leaks
There are several different kinds of leaks including:
Water supply lines are usually easy to identify by their sound or visual
signs of leaking or flooding. Older cast iron or copper pipes are more
prone to rust and holes. Plumbing fixtures can have visible or even hidden
leaks that aren’t always caught right away.
