Top 10 Main Water Line Leak Symptoms To Look For

When it comes to plumbing, sometimes things go wrong. And when they do, it’s important to be able to identify the signs of a problem before it turns into a full-blown disaster. In this article, we’ll discuss the 12 most common water line leak symptoms to look for in your home. By being aware of these symptoms, you can catch a potential leak before it causes any damage to your home and get it fixed before it becomes a bigger issue.

Signs Your Water Line May Have a Leak

Strange Sounds

Strange sounds in plumbing can be a sign of a leak. Listen for any strange or unusual sounds when you turn on the water. If there is a sound, shut off the tap and investigate further to determine whether or not you have a plumbing issue that needs to be addressed by plumbing professionals.

Damp or Wet Floor

Keep an eye on your floor to monitor whether or not you have water damage. If the water is leaking down into the floor, it may be doing unseen damage that can cause structural issues with your home. Check under carpeting and tile to see if there are signs of water damage. Look for wetness or dark spots in areas that seem odd.

Strange Odors

Odors that come from your water supply can be caused by a number of different factors. Some odors, such as the smell of rotten eggs, could indicate the presence of hydrogen sulfide in your water supply. This is often caused by decaying vegetation and can be an indication of a bacterial breakout or a mold problem. It’s a good idea to have your water supply checked out by a professional if you smell anything odd in your pipes.

Rusty Water

If you notice that the color of your water has changed, it could be an indication of a larger issue that needs to be addressed. Rusty or orange-colored water can be the result of corrosion in your water supply. It can also be caused by rusting pipes or iron buildup in your water supply. Check with local authorities to learn more about the kinds of contaminants that may be present in your area’s water supply, and then contact a plumber for further inspection.

Low Water Pressure

Water pressure could decrease for a number of different reasons. Watch for signs that your water line is leaking and ask around to see if anyone else in the area has reported low water pressure. You may also want to check your home’s water supply by shutting off your main shutoff valve and turning on all faucets throughout the house to let the water drain out. If this doesn’t cause pressure issues to resolve, call a plumber for further inspection.

Unusual Water in Your Yard

If you find that your yard is becoming more muddy or wet than usual, there could be an issue with water seeping into the ground. Be on the lookout for puddles of water forming in odd places and search for even, consistent soil moisture levels around your property. One of these signs may indicate a leak under your home where water pipes are connected to the foundation.

Higher Than Usual Water Bills

When you get water, your bill and water meter reflects the amount of water that you used in a month. Water bills can vary depending upon factors such as usage and the number of people living in the house, but if you find that there has been an increase in your monthly bills for no apparent reason, look for signs of a leak to explain the difference.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s a good idea to call a plumber to do an inspection and determine the cause of the problem.

Cracks in Your Foundation

If your foundation is cracked, it could be due to a water line leak that has caused the foundation to shift and crack over time. When you notice any cracking in your foundation, contact a plumber right away for further inspection. They will be able to tell you whether or not there is an issue with your foundation and what kinds of steps should be taken to repair the foundation.

Mold & Mildew Buildup

Mold and mildew buildup can be a sign of a larger problem. If you notice mold or mildew forming in areas that don’t seem to get wet, such as on drywall, paint, and carpeting, it could be due to a plumbing leak that is causing water damage throughout your home. Call a plumber for further inspection and a repair estimate if you notice mold or mildew growing in your home.

Damp Drywall

If you notice that the drywall in your home has become damp or wet, then there is a sign of water damage. Drywall can become waterlogged and begin to decay if it is exposed directly to water for an extended period of time. Look around inside your house for other signs of water damage such as rust or mold and call a plumber immediately if you notice any issues.
