Wondering if you have a water leak in your plumbing? Below are 5 tell-tale signs that may help you determine whether it’s time to call the plumbing pros at CENTRAL!

Water Bill Is Unusually High – Even a small leak if let go can lead to significant water waste. The most common issues of leakage are a dripping faucet, leakage in toilet flappers, or leaking valves, all of which can be easily fixed. fixing just one can save almost 10% of a homeowner’s water bill.

Constant Sound of Water Noise –  All the water sources are turned off in your home, yet you still hear the sound of water dripping or water flowing.. . Don’t just ignore these sounds, they have the potential of a high-dollar fix if let go. Call on the PROS at CENTRAL to identify the location of the leak.

Constant Funky Smell – We all know that smell. It’s musty and stagnant and we immediately associate with mold and moisture. When leaks go left untreated they lead to mold growth. If you want to find where the leak is coming from…follow your nose to where the scent is strongest.

Wet Spots NOT Caused by the Family Pet Have you found a warm wet spot that “wasn’t” left behind by the family dog? This warm, wet-spot may indicate a leaking pipe or slab leak. DO NOT IGNORE THIS! Call the Pros at CENTRAL. This kind of leak can cause major structural damage.

Decrease in Water Pressure – When water is constantly flowing through your pipes via a leak, that means less water is able to travel to your faucets and other water fixtures when you need it.  So if you notice reduced water pressure without a “good” reason. Give us a call, you may have a slab leak.

If you are experiencing any of the above issues, don’t hesitate to call the professionals at CENTRAL to diagnose and treat the problem.
