The costs are as staggering as the frequency.

Most of our plumbing is hidden from our sight, hiding behind drywall, in our ceilings or under floor boards. You may not see water coming through the cracks of your walls, water gushing through the ceiling or pooling from the floorboards, however there are smaller warning signs that can help you identify a water leak and minimize damage to your home and wallet.
Leaks can be very costly to homeowners as they waste water and if they go unnoticed, they can cause mold, mildew and other potentially serious damage. When you suspect a leak, you can count on Option One plumbing to locate and repair the leak very quickly. We use industry leading location tools and methods to effectively repair the leak while minimizing damages whether the leak is underground or behind a wall or floor.

IS THERE A WAY TO KNOW IF I HAVE A HIDDEN WATER LEAK?
A strong musty odor is another indicator of a potential leak. If you notice growths such as mold or mildew even without high humidity levels, this can be attributed to a plumbing leak. Aside from water damage to your home, mold and mildew can create potential health issues specially for small children, the elderly or those with respiratory health concerns.
HIGH WATER BILL
High water bills can be a sign of a potential water leak in your home. Pay close attention to sudden unaccounted spikes in your water bill. Even the smallest leak can attribute to a noticeable difference on your water bill.
LOW WATER PRESSURE
Low water pressure throughout your home is a clear sign of a plumbing leak. Low water pressure occurs when you have leaky pipes because the leak is not allowing full water flow to the point of exit, and this can occur in one part of your home where pipes leading into the house are damaged, or in every area of your home.
Sudden cracking of the foundation may indicate that there is a leak present. Your home’s structural components may be weakened with the constant flow of water caused by the leak.
SINKHOLES IN YOUR YARD
Unexplained wet spots in your yard can be signs of hidden water leaks. It is important to contact an expert to help determine the cause of water concentration.
WARPED, DAMP, OR DISCOLORED FLOORING OR CEILING
Hidden water leaks behind a wall can create water rings and dampen the drywall. Floors exposed to water will warp or puddle. These are clear signs of water leaks and must be addressed as an emergency.
A hidden leak is never good for your home, however if it is catching it early can save you a good amount of money. With state-of-the-art tools, Option One plumbing is ready to help in any emergency. Give us a call today!
