A plumbing leak is, without argument, one of the biggest enemies of pipes everywhere. What is it about a leak that makes it so frustrating? Well, for starters, even a seemingly “minor” leak like dripping faucets can waste a huge amount of water over time, resulting in higher than average water bills for you, for water you aren’t even using. These minor problems can trick you into thinking it’s no big deal, until you notice the cost of wasted water starting to add up.
More severe leaks can waste even more water, naturally, and do extensive damage to your property. And since most leaks develop in walls or beneath floors and above ceilings, they can go on for quite some time before becoming noticeable—after all, most of your plumbing system is hidden from view. Professional leak detection from a trained and experienced plumber in Santa Fe, NM is vital to pinpointing the exact location of your leak and repairing it. In the meantime, though, we’ve provided some tips below on how you can spot an issue on your own.
