The Sound of Running Water | Leak Detection

If you think you have a plumbing leak, call the leak detection specialists at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.

When you got back from the Saturday Morning Market today, you washed the fresh vegetables and put them away. That’s when you heard it. The sound of running water. You were the only one in the house, so you know there was no water running anywhere, but you went to check it out anyway. No faucets were running. But the sound of running water persisted. Now you’re wondering if you’re hearing things.

Probably not. The sound of running water is one indication that you may have a slab leak, according to esurance.com.

“To put it simply, a slab leak occurs when the water pipelines in your home’s walls or underneath its foundation spring a leak. Water then backs up beneath the slab, which can often lead to major damage to your house and the belongings inside,” esurance.com says. “From corrosion and pressure, to construction defects, to regular wear-and-tear and even negligence — there are a number of factors that can cause slab leaks. And with repairs that can cost upwards of $15,000, it’s key that you address a potential slab leak as soon as possible.”

Esurance points out these other indications that you may have a slab leak:

  • “High water bills: If you’re using the same amount of water you always do, but notice increasingly high water bills, you could have a slab leak on your hands.
  • “Warm spots on your floor: These could be a sign of a hot water pipe busting.
  • Excessive moisture, mildew, and even mold: If your carpeting is moist to the touch or shows symptoms of mold or mildew, it may be time to call in a professional inspection.
  • “Cracks in your home’s flooring or walls: Once a slab leak has gotten really bad, it may cause noticeable cracks in your house — bad omens for the structural integrity of your place.”

Your next move should be to call a trusted plumber. If you don’t have a reliable plumber, then it’s time to call the trusted plumbing technicians at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
