by Naman A. Well-Motivated Digital Marketer

If you have been suspecting that there is a leak somewhere in your house, either because you have been receiving high water bills or the moisture is getting accumulated on the walls of your home. Water Pipe Locating can help you save a lot of money.

Finding the right spot of leakage is not an easy task. Follow the following tips that will help you in identifying the right spot of water leakage until you call a plumber.

 

Determine if you Have a Leak

Before even starting to look for the leak, it is important to make sure that your home has a leakage. Please do this by taking the proper readings from the meter, turning off all your faucets, and leaving it for hours. Then, after hours of waiting, take the readings again from the water meter. Now, you’ll be sure if there are any water leakages if the readings had increased even when all the home's faucets were shut.

 

Look for Signs of Leakage

When you are certain that your home has a leaking pipe somewhere, now comes the challenging part where you have to locate the right place of the leak by identifying different signs of leakage

      Bubbling paint or wallpaper

      Peeling off the pain

      Moisture on the wall

      Patches of extra green grass in your garden

Listen for Leaks

If the leakage is bad, you will be able to hear the running water in your home all the time, even when all the taps of the house are turned off. To be able to listen to the sound of the running water behind the walls or floors, turn off all the taps of your home as well as any noise that might disturb you. Now, press your ears against the wall or the floors to listen for the sound of flowing water freely through your pipes. The leak will be there where the sound heard by you will be the loudest.

Check the Expected Spots

Even after all of the above efforts, you are unable to identify the leakage spot. You can also look for some other leak-prone hotspots in your homes, like toilets and hot water heaters in the bathroom or the kitchen.

 

Conclusion

Finding the leakage spot on your own helps to save money. Still, sometimes it can also lead

to more damage and put you into bigger trouble, so to avoid any further damage, you should

look for a professional who can help you with Water Pipe Locating.
