Leaks can cause major damage to your home if they are not repaired quickly. Even small leaks can create extensive damage if given enough time. Yet you may not even know that you have a leak since your plumbing is hidden in your walls, crawl space, and other out-of-the-way places.

If you suspect a leak, you need to call a plumber to find the source of the leak quickly and to make the needed repairs. The longer you wait, the more extensive the damage can be. Yet you might worry that having a plumber look for the source of the leak can actually cause more damage. This is not true. Fortunately, there are many non-invasive ways to find the source of a plumbing leak.

Knowing the Signs of a Leak

First, you need to suspect that there is a leak to call the plumber to look for the source of the leak. If you don’t keep an eye out for the subtle signs of a leak, you may not know that you have one until the problem has spiraled and you are dealing with a lot of damage to your house.

Before you notice any visible signs, the first thing you are likely to notice when you have a leak is a higher water bill. You’ll be using more water without realizing it, so your habits may not have changed, but your bill will be more. The difference may be incremental, so be sure to look at the chart of your water usage over time to note changes.

Visible signs of a leak can include mold or mildew in your home. Mold and mildew can appear just about anywhere, but pay close attention to walls, ceilings, and the area around your sink and other water fixtures. Remember that water can travel, so even if you find mold and mildew in what you consider to be a “dry” area, it could still be the result of a leak.

Light brown or yellow marks on your walls or ceiling can also be signs of a leak. Don’t dismiss these as signs of aging if you see them. Call your plumber. The earlier you can address a leak, the better.

Non-Invasive Detection

Plumbers don’t have to tear out walls or break through your floors to figure out where your plumbing has failed. If you suspect a leak, they can get to its source with an effective non-invasive measure.

Helium or hydrogen are often used to pressurize plumbing systems. If your plumbing fails, some of that gas will leak out. Plumbers use a specialty tool to detect trace levels of these gasses in your home, indicating that you have a leak or another plumbing problem. Plumbers can use this tool to find plumbing problems under concrete slabs, asphalt driveways, in walls, through floors, and more. You can find out quickly whether you have a leak without any building materials being removed or damaged.

Of course, if the plumber does find evidence of a leak or a plumbing problem, more invasive measures will need to be taken to make the repair. Portions of the wall or flooring may need to be removed to get at the damaged pipes. However, the plumber will either repair those areas or will subcontract out the repair to ensure that there is no evidence of damage. Your plumbing will work properly, and your home will look just as good as it did before you had to call in the plumber.
