24/7 Rooters has over 25 years of experience detecting water leaks in both residential and commercial buildings in Morris, Middlesex, Bergen, and the Greater Northern New Jersey area. A water leak should be taken care of immediately because it can cost the homeowner or commercial building owner a great deal of money. If a leak goes undetected, it could damage the structure of the home, apartment, retail store, or office building or create a safety hazard. Extensive damage from a water leak may cause you to close your business or move from your home until the damage is repaired. Both scenarios cost you time and money.
Finding Water Leaks
Water leaks can occur both inside and outside a home or commercial building. Pipes, plumbing fixtures, and fittings are all sources of water leaks. Some of the areas that are prone to leaks include the following:
- Indoor and outdoor faucets
- Water heaters
- Water softeners
- Fire suppression systems
- Lawn sprinklers
- Drinking fountains
- Water lines
- Drain lines
Some leaks, such as a dripping faucet or running toilet, are obvious. Others are not. If you hear running water when all the taps are turned off, then you might have a leak in one of the pipes.
To find out if you have a water leak in your home, check the water meter:
- Shut off all appliances that use water
- Read the water meter
- Wait three hours without using any water
- Check the meter again
- If the number has moved, you have a leak somewhere in your home
