The Dangers of Springing a Leak
One of the most tricky things about broken or leaking water pipes is how difficult they are to detect. Because your pipes and waterline are mostly hidden from you view within the walls, floors, ceilings, and yard, it can sometimes be incredibly difficult to recognize the early signs of a leak.
A broken water pipe is a dangerous thing when it stays “out of sight, out of mind.” Many people do not notice there is a problem with their pipes until the situation has escalated, and the leak has become much worse—possibly flooding out a basement, or creating soggy sink holes in the lawn from a rupture in the water line. Even a slow leak, though less dramatic, can create devastating structural damage and health hazards in the form of rotting wood, mold, and mildew.
Promptly Fixing the Pipe
Your broken pipe could be caused by any variety of things: frozen pipes, aging pipes, poor DIY attempts, rust, or lack of maintenance. Smart homeowners are proactive about calling a professional to investigate any suspicious symptoms of broken pipes in their home or property boundary. Our team knows that you would much rather have your plumber repair a small leak than address the disaster of a burst pipe.
Here are a few signs that you may have a broken water pipe that needs to be fixed:
• Visible water in unexpected areas of the home, such as walls or small puddles on floors
• Low water pressure
• Ceiling stains
• Musty smell
• A slight increase in your monthly water bill
