Water Leak Detection

A lot of the time, most of the plumbing work in and around your home should be left to the professionals. However, what most people do not realize is that you can easily determine whether you have a leak in your home by simply using your water meter. Today we are going to teach you how to determine whether you have a water leak in your home, simply by using this five-step process.

 Step #1 – Turn Off Your Water-Consuming Appliances

The first thing that you need to do is turn off all your water-consuming appliances. Make sure that you close each of them tightly. This also includes your refrigerators and icemakers.

 Step #2 – Let People Know Not To Use The Water

Let the people in your home know that they should not use the water for about half an hour. You need some time to pass before you are able to measure.

 Step #3 – Find Your Water Meter

After you know that you have all the appliances and faucets turned off, find the water meter in your home. This is why you should have a basic understanding where you can find this. If you are moving in for the first time, ask your property owner.

 Step #4 – Check The Water Meter

Check the position of the needle on the dial and note the time. Then wait around a half hour.

 Step #5 – Come Back To The Water Meter

After waiting a half hour, you can check the position on the needle again. If the water meter has changed (since you have not used any water in the house), chances are that you have a water leak somewhere in your home that is using your water.

 Why It Is Important To Check

Not only is a water leak frustrating to deal with, it can also add to your water bill and cause some major water damage in your home. Each drip is eventually going to cost money. After you have done the check yourself, it is now time to call in the pros to find out where the leak is coming from. This is why you want to work with qualified professionals who are capable of handling the situation.
