The Damage from Hidden Leaks
With plumbing running behind walls, under concrete, in ceilings and through yards, it can be difficult to determine the exact location of a leak. Unlike visible leaks from dripping faucets, hidden leaks can remain undetected for months or even years. A few common areas where leaks occur include:
- Under the basement floor (these are known as slab leaks or foundation leaks)
- Behind drywall
- Under landscaping
- In basements
- In hidden water lines
- In toilet flapper valves
- In whole-house humidifiers
- In evaporative cooling systems
When a leak is out-of-sight, out-of-mind, it wastes gallons of water and causes significant damage to your home. Studies show that hidden leaks can waste between 2,000 and 20,000 gallons of water a year. Imagine the water wasted if you have multiple hidden leaks! This estimate may be on the conservative side; water meters typically don’t register water usage unless the leak surpasses 360 gallons a day.
Besides wasted water, leaks can create an ideal environment for mold to flourish which causes respiratory problems if left undetected for too long. It can also cause damage to flooring, walls and landscaping.
Signs You Have a Hidden Leak
Here are a few signs that indicate you may have a leak hidden away:
- An unusually high water bill
- Water stains on ceilings
- Pooling of water on the lawn, or soaked planters
- Reduced water pressure
- Smell of must, or mildew
- Sound of running or rushing water when water is not in use
- Water meter is still running even if all water is turned off
- Well pump runs excessively
