How to Tell You Have a Water Line Leak

A water line leak is not something that happens too often unless you live in a little older of a home. This is also not something most people ever think about. Your water lines are buried underground all over your yard and under your house. Because of this, if they become damaged or even break, you may not know for a while. If this does happen, you will start to notice a few signs if you are paying attention.

Signs of a Water Line Leak

Wet Spot – If you have noticed a wet spot in your yard, only in one spot, you may have a water line leak. Don’t immediately jump to that conclusion though. You should first, look around your yard. Make sure that no water was left on, how big the spot of water is, and if there are others just like it around the yard. If there are wet spots all over, it probably isn’t a leak, but something else.

Higher Water Bill – You know your water bill better than anyone else. If it starts to get higher and higher over a very short period of time, there are a few things you can do. The first one is to check and make sure nothing is your house is leaking. Sometimes there are sinks that have leaky faucets and we don’t have a clue until the $400 water bill rolls in. Talk about a surprise! If you find though that you do not have any noticable leaks, it is time to call a plumber out.
