3 Signs That You May Have a Water Line Leak

You don’t need us to tell you just how important it is that you have access to clean, potable water throughout your home. That water that is distributed throughout your home via your plumbing system is brought into the system via your water line. If you have a damaged water line that is leaking, you have a serious problem on your hands.

The fact that your water line in Spring, TX is buried on your property doesn’t mean that there is no way in which you can notice that it is leaking. You just need to familiarize yourself with some common warning signs of water line leaks. Read on, and give us a call if you suspect that there is a problem with your water line.

  • Wet spots, puddles, or spongy soil on your lawn may all indicate that you have a water leak. We aren’t getting much rain around here, so these wet spots are very possibly the result of water leaking out of your main water line. The good news is that the professional plumbers on our staff will determine if this is the case, and will resolve the problem correctly if so.
  • Visible water damage within your property is another potential sign of water line leaks. You don’t need to have a totally flooded floor in your house in order to have a water line leak. Even damp spots at the base of your wall could suggest a problem.
  • Excessive water bills are another common sign that you have a water line leak. If you have not made any real changes to water use in your home, there is no reason that you should see a spike in your water costs. You can always shut off the water to your home, and check the meter an hour later. If you’re still using water, it is likely leaking out somewhere.
