Pipe leaks are one of the most common plumbing problems homeowners deal with. Left undetected and unrepaired, they can cause costly damage to your home and belongings. Therefore, it is important to have an idea of the common locations where pipe leaks occur. The key is to stop them in their tracks before they get out of hand.

In this article, Express Plumbing & Rooter shares some of the common places where pipe leaks develop. Here at Express Plumbing & Rooter, we take pride in providing top-quality leak detection, trenchless pipe repair, trenchless sewer line replacement, and many other plumbing services.

  • Beneath The Foundation

This is one of the common places where hidden water leaks occur. Leaks under the foundation slab can be difficult to detect but can cause serious damage. Signs of slab leaks might include dampness or cracks in the foundation, the sound of running water, uneven floors, or higher water bills. If any of these signs sound familiar, contact  Express Plumbing & Rooter for slab leak detection and repair.

  • Behind Walls

Pipes running within walls are susceptible to leaks due to corrosion, loose connections, or damage from drilling nails or screws. You’ll know you have a leak behind the walls if you notice damp spots, mold growth, or peeling wallpaper on the walls. Call a nearby plumbing repair service as soon as you notice signs of pipe leaks behind walls.

  • On Ceilings

Leaks in the ceiling typically originate from upstairs bathrooms, kitchens, or laundry rooms. Water stains, peeling paint, or even sagging ceilings can indicate leaks above the ceiling. Do not hesitate to call a plumbing service for leak detection if you suspect a water leak above the ceiling.

  • Inside The Toilet Tank

A faulty toilet tank flapper or worn-out fill valve can cause a constant trickle of water, leading to wasted water, mold growth in your bathroom, and higher water bills.  Listen for the sound of running water even when the toilet isn't flushed.

  • In the Sewer Line

A leak in the sewer line, which carries wastewater away from your house, can be a serious health hazard. Some of the common causes of sewer line leaks include tree root intrusion, ground settlement, and damage from construction. Signs of a sewer line leak might include sewage backups, unpleasant odors, or sinkholes in your yard. Call the plumbing team at Express Plumbing & Rooter for sewer repair when you suspect a sewer line leak in your home.

  • Around Appliances and Fixtures

Washing machines, dishwashers, faucets, showerheads, and under-sink connections are all susceptible to leaks around the hoses or connections. You should keep a close eye on water-using appliances and fixtures in your home and call a professional plumbing service when you notice visible water pooling.

  • Outdoor Plumbing

Most homeowners tend to focus more on indoor plumbing and often neglect outdoor plumbing fixtures. Hose bibs, sprinkler systems, and pipes leading to outdoor faucets can develop leaks due to freezing temperatures in winter or exposure to sunlight and weather throughout the year. It’s important to inspect these areas for cracks, damaged hoses, or wet spots.

Left a review a few days ago on Yelp. Not sure what happened with the other review experiences here but my experience was great. They were very professional. I went there discussed my plumbing needs and they explained all the charges. Made an appointment and they came and fixed my plumbing. The whole thing went smoothly and I recommend them!
