5 Signs of a Leaky Pipe Problem in Your Home


Nothing can be more frustrating than waking up to find your home flooded, or discovering your utility bills have skyrocketed from an unknown cause. A leaky pipe problem is one of the most common plumbing issues that homeowners face, but it can be difficult to detect without the proper tools and expertise. That’s why it is important to know what signs to look for when you suspect a leaky pipe problem in your home. Keep reading to learn the five telltale signs that you may have a leaky pipe issue on your hands.

Unusual Water Pressure Changes

Many times a leaky pipe will cause water pressure changes in fixtures like shower heads, faucets, and toilets connected to it. If you notice any changes in the flow of water coming out of these fixtures, then there could be an issue with one or more pipes connecting them.

Unusual Sounds Coming From Pipes

Have you heard strange gurgling noises coming from your pipes? This could be a sign that there is trapped air inside them due to a crack or breakage somewhere along the line. It’s also possible that this sound is coming from trapped sediment buildup within the pipes which can lead to clogs if not taken care of quickly.

Unexplained Increase in Utility Bills

If you notice an unexplained increase in your utility bills for water usage, then this might indicate that there is a hidden water leak somewhere within your plumbing system. This is especially true if the increase seems too high for normal usage patterns at home such as taking long showers or running multiple loads of laundry per day.

Discolored Areas On Walls & Ceilings

Leaky pipes can cause water damage which will eventually show up on walls and ceilings as discoloration or wet spots where moisture has been absorbed into drywall or other materials around the house over time.

Musty Odors Around Plumbing Fixtures

Another sign of potential leaking pipes is musty odors coming from around plumbing fixtures like sinks, bathtubs, and toilets due to excess moisture build-up inside them over time due to leaks. If you are dealing with this issue then it’s likely that you need professional help fixing whatever underlying problem exists causing these leaks before further damage occurs throughout your home from mold growth or structural damage due to water seeping into wood framing/flooring materials over time.
