Leaks in a plumbing system can cause a lot of trouble for your home. First, there’s all that water waste, which means you may pay more for water from the utility company than you should have to. Then, there’s the cost of repairing the issue in case a leak is located somewhere that only a plumber can reach. However, the potential cost of water damage can be much higher, which is why it’s still important to catch problems sooner than later.
You may not be able to detect leaks by looking really closely at your pipes; you cannot see the majority of the plumbing pipes in your home! However, there are some methods that may help you to spot hidden leaks.
