There’s nothing fun about dealing with water leaking from a pipe or elsewhere, but some water leaks are much easier to handle than others.  Which ones? Those that you can readily see and tend to before any property damage occurs.

Conversely, your worst nightmare of water leak is the kind you can’t readily detect – because they lay hidden, just waiting to be discovered. Here are a few prime examples:   

  • Refrigerator – From time to time, move your refrigerator away from the wall. That way, you’re far more likely to spot small pools of water which, if left unchecked, can eventually seep into your floor boards and inflict damage on sub-flooring, walls, and ceilings.  If water comes in contact with electricity, even worse problems can erupt.
  • Toilets – If you have a toilet tank that likes to refill itself even when no one’s flushed, chances are it has a hairline leak on the tank wall below the water line. To find out, put a drop or two of food coloring inside the tank and let it be for about 30 minutes.  Then come back and check the bowl.  If you see the same color of tinged water, voila, you’ve confirmed your suspicion.
  • Slab Leak – Let’s say you have a downstairs family run with a carpet over concrete, and one day your bare foot encounters a wet spot. Yes, one of your kids could have spilled a liquid.  Or, it could be a sign of an under-floor water leak.  This one could take the skill and resources of a plumber to figure out.

Hidden water leaks cause structural damage to your home, spark an electrical fire, and even lead to problems with mold and mildew – not to mention all the wasted water which you wouldn’t notice until receiving a subsequent water bill. Concerned you might have a hidden water leak of your own. Contact CT Mechanical Services today, because if you do, we’ll find it and recommend the right course of action to get it fixed.
