How to Tell If You Have a Water Leak
Checking your water meter is the best way to tell if you have a water leak. First, walk around your home to make sure that all of your taps, inside and out, are off. Then find your water meter, take a reading, and wait an hour without using any water. If you get a different reading when you return to the meter an hour later, you have a leak.
You don’t need to waste time checking your water meter every day. Instead, pay attention to any changes around your home for signs of a water leak. Some of the tell-tale symptoms of water leaks include:
- Moisture or wet spots around pipes
- Water bills that are higher than normal
- Yellowing walls
- Mold and/or mildew
The worst water leaks can be easily identified with the naked eye. But lesser leaks may require professional detection services. The expert technicians at GoRapid Plumbing have the tools and training to detect and repair every kind of leak. If we can’t fix it, no one can.

The Start Of Water Leaks
Water pipes in your home receive a constant amount of pressure from the water supply outside. This water pressure allows water to flow throughout your home, ensuring that it’s available from your taps and faucets on-demand.
Exposed pipes beneath the house, faulty connectors, welds, and joints can all be sources of leakage. If the leak is small, you may not notice it unless the water starts pooling somewhere in sight. But just because there aren’t gallons of water spraying from your pipes doesn’t mean you can ignore the issue. Even small leaks require immediate attention.
Water Leaks Can Affect Your Home
Every year, at GoRapid Plumbing, we service a lot of homes that experience water leaks. Each leak is different in location and environment.
Mold is one of the most serious potential dangers when water seeps into your home. Once it takes root in the bones of your house, removing the mold can be next to impossible. So it’s essential to address any leaks before mold starts to grow.
Damaged ceilings, floors, and walls are other common occurrences with leaks. Rot and decay can set in when water is not cleaned up on a regular basis, both of which can be breeding grounds for mold. And if your house has a wood finish, the wood can also become discolored, requiring surface repairs to get looking like new again.
One of the most important things for you to learn before you experience any type of leak is where the water main shutoff valve is for your home. Any time thereafter, if you have a water leak that starts pouring water into your home, you can simply shut the water to the house off. If you need help doing so, give us a call and we can walk you through the process.
