Dangers of Hidden Leaks

The sudden dripping of water from your pipe certainly increases your water bill! This can cost you several hundreds of pounds to fix.

Are You Experiencing A Hidden Plumbing Leak?

As a homeowner, you may not know when you have a leaking pipe or plumbing and when to seek professional help. However, we at Emergency Plumber Chelsea are here to guide you on how to detect leaking plumbing and provide measures you can adopt to reduce the risk to the barest minimum. Call us for more information and help with leaking plumbing, Chelsea.

So, What Are The Signs Or Hidden Leaks?

Slow leaks in plumbing fixtures and water-using appliances are the major causes of water waste and plumbing problems in homes. There are some common places where plumbing leaks may occur, which is why we have provided these guidelines to assist you with checking for leaks. However, if you cannot find them, you need to call us immediately.

Monitor Your Water Meter

Any unusual hike in your water utility bill can be effectively checked using your water meter. This is a convenient way to uncover any hidden plumbing leak. You can do a water meter test, especially when nobody is at home.

Here's how to do it:

  • Shut off every water source and appliances in your home for at least 3 hours. We are talking about sprinkler systems, dishwashers, washing machine, showers, and toilets
  • Takedown the reading on your water meter with a pen and writing pad or better still, take a snapshot of it
  • Wait for a minimum of 3 more hours
  • Recheck your water meter. If there's been reading all this time, then you have a case of hidden leaks

Do A Routine Comparison Of Your Water Utility Bill

This is important! The next time a water bill arrives, ensure you compare it with the previous bill. If there's a difference without any explainable reason like a change in household activities, bear in mind that your water is dripping away somewhere.

How Do You Check For Hidden Plumbing Leaks?

The first point of call for a plumbing leak are the pipes and water appliances you can see. Check your pipes, toilets, showers, irrigation system, washing machine, dishwashers, and sinks for visible dripping from or around them. Should there be any, you can call us at Emergency Plumber Chelsea to do the necessary repairs.

Earthy smells, mouldy ceilings, walls, and even sagging floors can also be tell-tale signs of a hidden leak.

There are more serious and less obvious leaks you may not see! These are usually behind walls and under the ground. You need expert plumbers to be able to detect these leaks before they damage your home. Our number is 020 71833921; call us as soon as possible!

Checking Your Plumbing For Hidden Leaks

As a homeowner, you can be acutely aware of changes in your plumbing system if you do pay close attention. You may not necessarily have the skills to fix damages in your household plumbing, but your ability to detect issues like leaking water can play a significant role in eliminating this silent home wrecker.

Pay close attention to these guidelines as it will help you discover if there is any hidden leak in your plumbing.

Your Toilets

About 30% of water is used in the toilet. A leak in your toilet can increase drastically! You can test this by adding food colouring to your toilet tank and allow it seat for 10 minutes. If the colour in the tank appears in your toilet bowl within this time frame, there may be leakage.

Toilet leaks are usually caused by worn out rubber seals. We can help you replace them when you call us. Our phone line is always available; call now.

Taps, Shower Heads, Baths, And Sinks

Before you perform this check, know that as plumbing gets older, it deteriorates. Just in case your home is well over 25 years, you have to check out for earthy musty smells and moulds around sinks and under basins.

If your shower and bath taps do not shut off the water completely after shutting them off, there is a leak! It may be slow, but that constant dripping can waste a lot of water. You should call us to replace your old taps and showerheads. We're Emergency Plumber Chelsea; we fix plumbing issues!

Your Washing Machine And Dishwasher

Is there any discolouration or oxidation in your valves, hoses, and pumps? If yes, then there is a leak.

When there is a leak in your dishwasher or washing machine hose, it can become more serious if it eventually breaks. Don't wait for it to get severe! Change your hoses once you detect any leaks. We can help you fix it. Call us on 020 71833921.

Your Water Heater

Look out for water puddles around your water heater. Check your heater connections for corrosion or oxidation. Contact an expert plumber if you notice any of these signs for proper inspection and possible repairs. You can call Emergency Plumber Chelsea; we are good at fixing water heaters.

Damaged Ceiling, Stained Walls, or Sagging Floors

Hidden leaks around your walls, ceiling, and floors can cause warping, rippling, or staining around these parts. You may not be able to get into these areas and check out the problem. But you can call us to help you fix it immediately. This is crucial to avoid more expensive damage.

Blistered Wallpaper or Crackling Paints

The steam from your bath area doesn't cause discolouration, crackling or bubbling of wallpaper and paint. In case you notice these, water may be slowly moving behind the surface. Call Emergency Plumber Chelsea now for immediate inspection and fixing!

Warping Structural Materials

Materials like plaster, drywall, wood panels, or baseboard that are warping can be caused by wetness or dampness. Are you noticing abnormalities in your wall's flatness and texture? It could be a sign of hidden leaks. Call a plumber as soon as possible.

Musty Smells, Moulds, And Mildews

Moulds and mildews usually collect around shower areas so, look out for them in unusual areas to detect a pipe leak. Dark, wet places are favourable for breeding moulds and mildew. This means a leak in your wall is an exact location for these bacteria to thrive.

Also, accumulated old wastewater smells earthy and musty but, if you've cleaned out your bath and shower areas yet you still get that musty smell, it may be a sign of pipe leak. Act fast by calling Emergency Plumber Chelsea!

Wet Carpets And Floors

If your bathroom floor or tiles have become loose and stained, water may be seeping into the floor from a leaking pipe nearby.

Constant wetting of floorboards from underneath can cause rotting and it weakens them as you stand to have your bath.

Are you experiencing damp carpets? It may be that your carpet is absorbing the water seeping into the floor or from leaking pipes. You need to check and fix these issues now. Call Emergency Plumber Chelsea today. The number is 020 71833921. We will be there to take out that leakage.

Dripping Sound

When your home is quiet, do well to listen for any faint or audible dripping sound especially around your toilet, bathroom and kitchen. If you hear any dripping, look for the source at once to avoid a big issue from occurring over time.

Sparks From Electrical Sources

Water and electricity are not friends! Any contact between these two is fatal! If you do hear crackles or see sparks when your lights are switched on or off, disconnect your electricity immediately and seek help from a professional. Save yourself and your home from danger like this. Call Emergency Plumber Chelsea today!

A Room That's Always Cooler Than Other Rooms

When you have a room that seems to be cooler than others in your home, it could be that there's a damp spot that is keeping the temperature low. We know this because water takes out heat from the atmosphere faster than air. So, if you are experiencing this, ensure you seek professional help. We at Emergency Plumber Chelsea are here for you. Call us anytime!

What if You Still Can't Find The Leak?

Could it be that you've checked out all the areas we have mentioned above and still can’t find where the leakage is coming from. Then you need the assistance of a professional plumber because the more the leak stays undetected, the greater the risk of water damage to your home.
