The damage caused by every problem in this world could have been minimized if it had been caught early. If you have suffered from water leaks earlier, we are sure you wished you had caught on earlier. It could have helped keep the bill of the plumbers on the lower side.

Although most system of water and drainage systems today are very efficient and do not produce much waste if they are maintained properly. However, leaks:

  • Can cause damage that is expensive
  • Require immediate attention
  • Can weaken the foundation of your house

Therefore, it is important that every person should be aware of the various signs and symptoms to detect the water leaks as soon as possible. This will not only help you keep the bill of repair less but will also cause you less inconvenience.

Keep the Plumbers Bill Low by Checking Your Consumption Level

The easiest and the most convenient way to discover hidden leaks is by keeping track of the water consumed by your family. Make it a point to:

  • Save water bills
  • Compare them
  • Calculate if there has been a drastic increase in the consumption

Do not compare the bills of two consecutive months. Instead, compare the bills of the same months of two separate years. The logic behind this is simple: there are various families whose water consumption for separate months is different.

However, for each particular month in all years, the level of water consumed should be similar. If there is any kind of discrepancy, it is time to get in touch with a professional service.

Test Using Water Meter before Calling the Plumbers

Most water heaters have an indicator which you can identify with a small silver wheel or triangle dial. If you see your leak detector is moving, there is a good chance that your pipes are damaged somewhere. However, they are not always accurate.

You can also detect leaks with the help of primary dial on the meter by:

  • Turning off all water sources
  • Write current level of water use
  • Wait for some time and check the dial again

If water level moves significantly or if the gauge keeps spinning, a leak is definitely there.

The best option is to get in touch with a professional service as soon as you have the slightest of doubt. You could end up saving gallons of water and hundreds of dollars.
