3 Signs You Have a Water Leak in Your Chapel Hill, NC, Home

Water leaks in your home pose a long list of potential problems. The problems water leaks cause are even more significant if you don’t repair it right away. If you notice any of these three signs in your Chapel Hill, NC, home, you should contact a professional plumber as quickly as possible:

An Increase in Water Bills

Your monthly water bills are probably pretty consistent from one month to the next. Unless you take on a large project such as filling a pool, you and your family typically use the same amount of water each month. If you notice a sudden increase in your water bill, you probably have a water leak somewhere in or around your home.

Less Water Pressure

If you have a water leak somewhere in your home’s plumbing system, your faucets, showers and tubs won’t be able to maintain typical water pressure. While small leaks may not cause a significant drop in water pressure, a major leak can slow your typical streams of water to a trickle. Seek a plumber’s help to find and fix the problem fast.

Evidence of Water

Many home plumbing systems include pipes that run above ceilings and behind walls. If you notice wet spots on your ceilings, especially ceilings on the first floor of a home, you probably have a hidden water leak.

There are also ways that you can detect a water leak behind your walls. Peeling wallpaper or bubbles forming under the paint on your walls are surefire signs of a water leak.
