How to Spot a Plumbing Leak

While it’s impossible to predict all issues associated with your plumbing system, our plumber in Northbrook, Ilcan help make your life easier in the case of an emergency. We take pride in our ability to find leaks and repair them as quickly as possible. While most of your plumbing system is hidden from plain sight, there are certain red flags that can help alert you that something is wrong. Keep the following in mind.

A Decline in Water Pressure

While a decrease or complete loss in water pressure is never a good thing, it could be caused by different things. Typically, it means that there is a leak or blockage somewhere in your system that needs to be fixed. If the loss of water pressure is sudden, this could be a sign that you have a pipe that has burst. Make sure that you call our team if you notice a shift in water pressure for the worse.

High Water Bills

Make sure to keep an eye on your monthly water bills. If you see a bill that is significantly higher than your previous bills, that is a red flag. This typically means that water is leaving your system somewhere, signifying a leak. Nip the problem in the bud and call our team.

Visible Signs of Water Damage

Unfortunately, many plumbing problems stay behind the scenes until they have caused a significant amount of damage, such as damp walls or cracks in the ceiling with water seeping through. Call our plumber in Northbrook, Il as soon as possible and we will be ready to help you!

In the case that you catch a plumbing leak, don’t hesitate to contact our team!
