Lake Forest Plumbing Service Providers say, any time you find a leak at home, you might not be sure where the source is. We’ve assembled this fast and easy guide that will assist you in finding and blocking the leak that has been aggravating you.

Here’s how to figure out where that leak is originating from.

Assess The Meter

Lake Forest Plumbing Service Providers say, to first check your water meter because it can give you clarity that there is a problem. The trouble is that this may be harder than you anticipate.

You’ll have to turn off your main water source so that the reading on the meter is more accurate. Make sure that your faucets aren’t running and shut off any appliances that will use the water.

As soon as you are confident that you aren’t actively using any of your home’s water, go back to your water meter. If the indicator continues to move, then it means there’s a leak somewhere in your home. Based on how fast the meter is moving, you can figure out just how big the leak really is.

Inspect The Bill – It May Be Higher

Lake Forest Plumbing Service Providers say that looking at the meter isn’t your only option. Along with monitoring your water meter, you can also inspect the water bill.

If your water bill has been higher and higher every month, and you have been using the same amount of water every month, then it might determine the presence of a leak.

It may be time for you to replace your aging home appliances. There may also be clogs causing issues, however, most of the time they are out of sight and out of mind. If you have a hunch that you have a plumbing clog, it’s worth following up on it and contacting your local plumber. (That’s us!!!)

Take a Look Around Your Property

Lastly, go outside and take a look around. Make sure that the leak isn’t affecting anywhere outside your home. Outdoor water sources may be affected also. Things like water valves, and sprinklers may potentially be leaking too. So an outdoor inspection never hurts.
