If you are a homeowner who has noticed an increase in your monthly water bill, chances are you have water leaks in your home that are causing the spike in your bill. Some home leaks, such as small drips, may seem minor to homeowners, but, over time, they can become bigger problems than you had ever expected. Those small little nothing leaks can easily result in higher water bills, but also can cause mold and mildew growth or other damage to your living space.
The team here at Steve Mull Plumbing wants to offer our valued clients some insight they need on the common areas of your home where water leaks can occur. It is important you stay focused on these areas so that you can prevent harmful leaks from occurring.
COMMON WATER LEAKS IN THE HOME
There are a few common areas in your home where water leaks are apt to happen. Here is some insight on those particular home areas.
- The hot water tank – If your hot water tank overheats or if there is a build up of excess pressure on the interior of the tank, you may notice a leak coming from the temperature and relief valve on the unit. When pressure builds up inside the tank it causes the valve to stay open and ultimately lead to a leak over time. When this occurs, it is best to reach out to our skilled plumbers to assess the situation and provide effective solutions.
- Hose bibs that leak – Leaky hose bibs typically involve a slow drip and may not seem like such a big deal to you at all. However, a consistent drip can result in a significant loss and waste of water that you have to pay for month after month. To fix a leaky hose bit simply take an adjustable pliers and tighten the nut on the backside of the handle. This should resolve this simple but costly problem. If, after your adjustment, the leak does not stop, then you more than likely have a more serious problem. That’s where the pros at Steve Mull Plumbing come in. Give a shout out to one of our plumbers who will identify the source of the leak and take steps to fix it.
- Leaky toilets – If the leak you notice is beneath your toilet, this fix can be fairly easy to perform. Simply tighten the bolts on the toilet that are closest to the floor, with a simple wrench. This will typically resolve the problem. However, if the leak is much more serious and not originating from beneath the toilet, then you will need our professional team to step in. Leaky toilets are pretty common to all plumbers and will not take as much time to identify and resolve as it would for you or any other lay person. Trust the pros here at Steve Mull Plumbing with all your toilet and water leaks.
