Water leaks can occur as a result of uneven water pressure, temperature changes and pipes rusting. It is important to detect and isolate leaks before they cause too much damage to your property. Often leaks go undetected because the origin of the leak is not easily visible and some leaks can stay hidden for months and even years, causing fixtures to rust, increasing your water bill and decreasing the value of your home.
Several variables, including the location and extent of the leak, the kind of plumbing system, and the area you live in, can affect the cost of having a leak detected. A leak detection service can cost anywhere from $150 to $500 or more on average. However, some plumbers might charge a set fee upfront. It's important to understand that the cost of the leak repair is distinct from the cost of the detection service. When a leak is found, the plumber will estimate the cost of repair, which will depend on the aforementioned factors as well.
Wet or soggy areas may indicate a leak in your backyard. If it hasn't rained recently and you have an unusual amount of standing water in your yard, you most likely have a leak. Also, keep an eye out for unexplained increases in your water bill. It is most likely the result of a hidden leak.
Look around your yard for any dying vegetation. If your plants or grass are dying in one area of your yard, it could be because of an underground leak affecting the roots.
After turning off all water sources in your home, you can also check the water meter. It may indicate a leak if it continues to run or changes.
