Signs You Have a Pipe Leak

As a homeowner in Tumwater, WA, spotting a pipe leak early can save you from costly repairs and water damage. Here are some common signs you might have a pipe leak:

Unexplained Water Bills: A sudden spike in your water bill without any increase in usage often indicates a leak.

Damp Spots: Notice any damp spots on walls, ceilings, or floors? This could be a sign of a hidden leak.

Mold and Mildew: Persistent mold or mildew growth, especially in non-shower areas, can signal a leaking pipe.

Water Stains: Discoloration on walls or ceilings often points to water seeping from a leaky pipe.

Musty Odors: A musty smell in your home can be due to unseen water leakage.

Low Water Pressure: If your water pressure drops suddenly, a leak in your plumbing system might be the culprit.

Sound of Running Water: Hearing water running when no fixtures are in use is a clear sign of a leak.

Foundation Cracks: Leaks can cause soil erosion under your home, leading to cracks in your foundation.

If you notice any of these signs, don't wait! Contact American Plumbing Contractors in Tumwater, WA, for a thorough inspection and prompt repair. Early detection can save you money and prevent further damage to your home.

How We Find Plumbing Leaks in South Puget Sound

When a pipe is leaking, the water isn’t always visible. Water can leak from a pipe and travel a considerable distance, which makes locating the leak a challenge. 

We use advanced equipment to locate leaks, such as:

  • Video camera inspection equipment: This equipment is used to see inside the pipes and identify the location of the leak, as well as the cause of the leak.
  • Infrared leak detection: Infrared technology is used to detect the location of a leak by identifying the temperature difference between the wet and dry areas of the floor or wall.

Once the source of the leak is located, our plumbers can repair the leak. We offer leak repair services for all types of plumbing pipes, including copper, galvanized steel, and PEX. We repair leaks in the main water line, supply pipes, and pipes that are located inside the walls, ceilings, and floors.

When to Call Us for Leak Repair in Olympia, WA

Leaking pipes are often discovered when the water bill is higher than normal. This is especially common when the leak is in a pipe that is hidden from view. However, there are other reasons to suspect a leak. You may notice a musty smell, see mold or mildew, or notice the sound of running water when the water is turned off. If you suspect a leak, it is important to call for Olympia leak detection and repair to prevent further damage.

Leaking pipes can cause serious damage, such as rotting wood, water stains, and mold growth. If the water is leaking into the walls or ceilings, the damage can be extensive. Our plumbers have the right equipment to find and repair the leak so that you can avoid more serious problems.
