However, if you need a professional plumber to look out for these leaks for you then do not hesitate to call Plumber Westminster on 020 71833801.

Here are a few tips on keeping hidden leaks in good check;

  1. Do not forget to check your water metres for lapses

One way to detect water leaks in your plumbing system is to monitor the water metre as high water bills continually or unusually increase in water bills could be a sign of a hidden leakage. Monitoring the water metre for leakage is one of the easiest ways of detecting if there is a hidden leakage. This check is executed better when no one is at home.

The following steps can be taken for proper detection of leakage in the home;

  • Put off all water sources for about 3-4 hours which includes indoor and outdoor appliances
  • Take note of the number on your water heater
  • Keep observing for 3 hours
  • After 3 – 4 hours, you can recheck the metre. If you notice that the metre has been reading or display massive changes, then the plumbing system in your home may have some leakage problems.
  1. Always Remember To Compare Utility Or Water Bills Regularly

One way to know if there is a hidden leak is to compare old utility bills with new ones regularly. If there is an increase in the new water bills, there could be a leakage somewhere. Doing a rundown of your daily routine might help in a way to find out the reason behind the increase in water bills.

How Can You Detect A Hidden Leak In Your Home?

To detect a hidden leak, here are some things to check out for:

Well, you have learnt how to identify whether or not there is a leak in your plumbing systems, but can you tell from where the leakage could be?  Usually, the first places to check for leaks would be the toilet, pipes, sinks, showerheads, taps and other vital plumbing systems in the home. There are specific ways to detect hidden leaks, they include;

  1. Toilets

The toilet is one of the critical places in every home and tends to create unrest for homeowners when such problems arise.

  • How can leakages be detected in toilets?

The easiest way to detect if there is a leakage in your toilet is by adding food colouring to the toilet bowl. After a few minutes if you notice the food colouring is no more in the toilet bowl, then the toilet has some leakage issues and should be treated immediately.

  1. Water heaters

Water heaters can also suffer leakage issues, just like the toilet in every home. To detect leakages in a water heater, you can do this by checking for water puddles around the radiator. If you find water puddles around the radiator, then you can be almost sure you have some leakages in your water heater. For water heaters, it is best to call a professional to check for leakages and also fix the leakages before it causes further damage.

  1. Sinks, Baths, Showerheads And Taps

If you notice some mould growth around your sink or basin with some musty smells, you can be almost sure that there is a leakage. However, this is avoidable by making sure your taps and showers are appropriately shut.

  1. Washing machine and dishwashers

For household items like dishwasher and washing machine, it is a lot easier to detect if there is a leak by checking the pumps, valves and hoses for any form of discolouration. It is vital to always check for leaks in your washing machines and dishwasher to avoid further unavoidable damages that may arise from the leakages.

  1. Floors and carpet leaks

If you notice any form of springy, loose or stained floor in your home, this could be a sign that there is water leakage from water dripping into the floor as a result of some pipe leakages. If you also notice some form of dampness, it could also be a sign of water leakages which is being absorbed by your carpets.

  1. When a room seems more aloof than the others

Sometimes leaks can be detected where a room appears to be cooler than other rooms in a house. Heat can be removed from a room as a result of water leakages from either broken pipes or a loose pipe somewhere around the room.
