Do you have a leak on your hands? Before you say no, make sure you know the answer! Many homeowners are unaware of leaks in their plumbing – until there’s a big plumbing emergency. Don’t wait until you’ve got a big mess on your hands, find the leak early on and call a plumber to get it taken care of. Here are three ways you can detect a leak:

Drops in Water Pressure
If the water pressure for one of your water appliances is dropping, it’s a sign that you have a serious leak in your plumbing system somewhere. You may also have a blockage, which has a lot of the same warning signs. If your water pressure drops, call a plumber ASAP for repairs.

Running Water Meter
One of the best ways to find out whether or not your plumbing is leaking is by turning off all the water appliances in your home, then watching your water meter. If the water meter is still running, then water is still leaving the system, which means you have a leak.

Rising Water Bills
Your water bills are, of course, going to fluctuate depending on how much water you use. If your water bills are consistently going up, though, it may indicate that you have a leak in your plumbing system that’s wasting substantial amounts of water. Keep an eye on your water bills, and if you notice this happening you should call for repairs right away.
