large property with lots of rooms (or a little property with lots of leaks). To
save some money you can go after this helpful, perceptive, and described in
some areas of the local plumbing service world as "parable-esque" guide to assist
you find the leak before contact your local plumbing service.
First, check you haven't just left your tap organization. The amount of people who call out a tradesman only to realise when they arrive that they've just left the tap on and that's why the house is now a swimming pool may surprise you!
Start by checking your hot water tank's pressure relief valve; sometimes these valves are plumbed directly into the drain and you may be unaware of a leak. If you can't remove the drain covering listen for a hissing sound that may indicate a leak.
Another good sign is wetness. If there is a distinct "wet patch" or a fully unabashed waterfall where there usually isn't one (i.e. your living room), this may suggest a leak.
