You know the sound—that slow but steady drip-drip-drip right after you’ve gone to bed and the house is quiet. Maybe you can turn over and block out the sound with your pillow until you fall asleep—this time. But what about tomorrow? And the next day?
First off, even if a small drip or leak like this isn’t driving you nuts just from listening to it, it is having an impact on your water use and subsequent bills. You can actually lose gallons of water each year due to small leaks in your plumbing system, even a dripping faucet.
Because so much of your plumbing system is hidden from sight, and since leaks can develop anywhere, not just your faucets, it’s essential that you learn how to spot the signs you have a leak, which we’ve covered below. And once you do spot them, the next best step is to call our plumbing pros so we can accurately locate and repair the leak, restoring full functionality to your plumbing system.
