PITTSBURGH, PA, May 20, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The plumbers in Pittsburgh, Stahl Plumbing, discuss how you can identify a plumbing leak in your home. Though leaking pipes are more common in older houses, newer builds are not immune from this issue either. The cause could be anything from improper installation to structural failure of the pipe. Regardless of how it starts, one thing for certain is that leaks can become extremely costly.
Leaks Are No Small Matter
On top of the constant supply of running water causing your utility bill to go through the roof, damaged plumbing lines means water is coming into contact with electrical wiring, drywall and many other materials that it never should. The longer the leak goes unfixed, the more serious the damage will be.
That being said, there are a few warning signs to be aware of. If one or more of these symptoms is apparent, contact an emergency plumbing contractor as soon as possible.
There is no surer sign of leaking lines than an unexpectedly hefty water bill. You know when something is out of the ordinary, especially if you have lived in your home for quite some time and have come to know your average monthly usage.
According to Corey Newman, Director of Marketing for Stahl Plumbing, "Wait until it is silent in your home to listen for the sound of running water. This coupled with a running water meter when nothing is being used are all you need to know to call a plumber. Warped floors and soft ground near the exterior of your house are also things to keep an eye out for."
