Everyone should agree that saving water is always a good idea. Most problems regarding water leaks in the house can be easily solved if you have the right tools and know what to look for. There are lots of possible places in the house where you can get water leaks and there are ways to be able to address them. Here are some tips to help find plumbing leaks in your home and water system.



                

If your water reading or water bill is more than what you expect and you have the same usage every month, then chances are there is a leak somewhere. In order to be able to check this, you need to turn off all fixtures that use water in the house. Common home fixtures are bathroom faucets, toilets, kitchen faucet, outdoor hose bibs, showers, bathtubs and laundry faucets and washing machine connections. Most fixtures should have shut off valves at the source to be able to cut off water to the fixture without having to shut off the main water supply to the entire home. After shutting off certain fixtures and isolating them, you have to see if your meter will be at a standstill. There is a small triangle that turns round and round on the water meter display when water is being used. If this is still running, then chances are there is a leak in your water system.



For the first part, check out the faucets and its connecting supply lines and valves. Faucets are usually the most common source for water leaks. Sometimes there are drops that fall down into the drain no matter how tight you turn off the handle. If it is not the faucet or cartridge itself, check out the supply hoses and valves connected to it. If there are wet spots underneath your sink, or the connections look wet or sweaty, chances are it could be leaking water. Another place where leaks usually occur is in the toilet bowl. Parts that connect to faucets do require maintenance and replacement periodically. This one is much more easily detected if you know how. Fill the water drain tank for flushing as normal, and put food colouring or a colour agent into the bowl. Check the toilet after 5 to 10 minutes; if the water in the bowl turned to the colour of the tank water food colouring, then the flapper might be leaking and need to be replaced. By these ways you can easily check if there are leaks for your water system. But addressing them is a different matter, and in this part, unless you really know how to fix them, then you better call local expert plumbers to help deal with the problem and fix any leaks. For residents in Mississauga, Ontario, call LicensedPlumbers.CA for all your water leaking problems from diagnosing leaks to leak repairs.
