Leak Detection

Water leaks can vary. They can be as simple as a drip from a fixture or a sudden gush from your water heater. Leaking pipes, fixtures and appliances can waste more than 10,000 gallons of water in the average single-family household each year. That’s why Competitive Plumbing offers leak detection and repair services in Brevard County to help homeowners avoid serious risks associated with an ongoing leak.

What is a leak?
From a slow drip from your faucet to a few drops from your toilet tank, it may seem harmless, but it may be a sign of a bigger plumbing issue. One of the harder leaks to spot is a slab leak because the pipes are embedded in the foundation of your home. If it goes undetected, this could increase the chance of mold and expensive foundation repairs.

Early Detection is Key

Signs of a Leak

Any homeowner discovering they have a plumbing problem on their hands — specifically a leak — find themselves in an unsettling situation. Roughly 10 percent of homes that have leaks waste approximately 90 gallons or more per day. Even if you notice a small, leaking faucet in your home, consider having it repaired immediately.

If your water bill has spiked, it may be a sign that there’s an issue. Examining all your fixtures including underneath cabinets is the easiest way to check for leaks.

Sudden warm and wet spots may have you blaming your dog, but it may be a leaking pipe.

This, as well as cracks in the walls or ceilings, is a good slab leak indicator.

When leaks go untreated, they can lead to mold growth. To find the source, follow your nose and look where the scent is the strongest.

Puddle-like markings or water stains on your ceiling or wall are telltale signs of a plumbing leak from inside the ceiling or wall.

If all water sources are turned off, yet you are still hearing water flowing or dripping sounds, there’s likely a water leak.
