Musty | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If your water bill is going up and you smell something musty, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber to check for a plumbing leak.

You were getting dressed to go to see Honky Tonk Angels when you noticed the smell in your bathroom. It was kind of musty. You looked around and couldn’t find anything but the odor got stronger near the closet where your water heater is. Now you’re wondering if you need a new water heater.

You might. A musty odor is an indicator you might have a water leak. As bobvila.com says, “Over time, a persistent leak provides the perfect humid environment for mold to grow. In some cases, you may notice black splotches on the outside of the wall, but often, mold will grow inside the wall where you can’t see it, so a musty smell is a red flag.”

The likelihood of a leak is even greater if your water bill – or water usage – has gone up.

As for whether you need a new water heater. That depends. If it’s a pipe leak in the wall or a hose leak, you probably don’t need a new water heater. But if the water heater itself is leaking, then it’s likely you will need to replace it.

Your best bet at this point is to call the leak detection experts at Billy the Sunshine Plumber to first check if you have a leak, then to determine what’s leaking, then – of course – to fix the leak.
