Signs of a Leaking Plumbing System

Often, when a leak occurs in a home, the homeowner can locate the source right away, whether there’s a pool of water surrounding the toilet or a drip-drip-drip coming from the kitchen sink.  Unfortunately, signs of a leak may not always be as obvious, and some may go unnoticed for months or even years, causing costly damage to the home.  Some signs of leakage include:

  • A drastic increase in your water bill
  • The sound of running water, even when the faucets are off
  • Water stains on the ceilings and walls
  • Peeling wall paint
  • Pools of water in bathrooms and kitchens, or near baseboards
  • Mold and mildew growth
  • Running water meter, even when the water is off
  • Cracks in the home’s foundation

Our Leak Detection Services

The professional leak detectors at Spartan Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning are experienced in finding the source of the leak in your Maryland or Washington, D.C. area home.  We use the latest technology to determine the exact location of the leak, no matter where it is, with minimal invasion.

A dripping faucet can be an obvious-and annoying-sign of a larger problem, but not all leaking faucets keep you up at night.  Sometimes, these leaks can be silent and more challenging to detect, but you may notice a drop in water pressure or some damage to the kitchen cabinet or vanity.  Fortunately, our plumbers can easily detect the source of the leak and have the tools on hand to fix the problem right away.

If your toilet sounds like it’s constantly running, or if you can hear a faint hissing or trickling sound, you likely have a leak.  Common causes of toilet leaks include loose mountings and ineffective flappers.  In some cases, the toilet may also need to be reseated.  Our team of licensed plumbers have years of experience detecting and repairing leaks in toilets, so you can be sure the job will be done quickly and professionally.

Underground leaks can be some of the hardest to detect.  Often, tree roots grow into the piping system of the home, causing small fractures or much larger leaks if the pipe ruptures.  Freezing weather can also cause pipes to burst as pressure builds.  If you notice soft spots in your yard or water pooling on sidewalks and driveways, this could be a sign of an underground leak.

Slab leaks are also challenging to locate, and, if left untreated, could cause foundation issues.  When a home is built on a slab, hot and cold water lines typically run underneath the slab.  While leaks under the slab can be common, they can also be a big headache.  That’s because they are hard to locate and can be challenging to repair.  Spartan Plumbing has tried and true techniques for locating leaks, even under the slab, and has the experience to repair them as well.
