Did you know that water leaks are the #1 cause of residential property damage in the U.S. and are the second-most common type of home insurance claim? Not to mention, the expenses accumulated directly from a water leak can be pretty costly to your wallet and your state of mind/sanity. Water damage statistics indicate even a minor leak can increase the average household water bill by 10%.
A water line leak is a leak in your plumbing system that supplies water from the water main on the street, directly to your home. This could be in the ground, or it could be in the house. A leaking pipe can have many different effects, some of which are more serious than others.
Water leaks can cause numerous problems such as flooding or damage to property, and they can also quickly cause mold growth leading to health complications. Leaks that are not fixed quickly can be a major problem, causing significant damage not only to your home and your belongings, but to your wallet, your health and your state of mind.
Common indicators of a leak in your underground water line include:
Water Meter Activity: Check your water meter when no water is being used in your home. If the meter is spinning, you may have a leak.
Unexplained Increase in Water Bills: Sudden spikes in your water bills may be a sign of a hidden leak.
Damp or Wet Areas: Unexplained damp or wet spots on walls, ceilings, floors, or carpet.
Mold or Mildew Growth: Mold or mildew developing in specific areas, it could be a sign of an underlying leak.
Musty Odors: Musty or earthy odors can also indicate the presence of hidden leaks.
Water Pressure Fluctuations: Sudden drops in water pressure or inconsistent water flow in faucets and showerheads.
Sounds of Running Water: If you can hear the sound of running water when no taps or fixtures are in use.
Wet or Unusually Green Areas in the Yard: Wet areas of the yard or random green patches of lawn growth even during dry periods.
Water Discoloration: Brown or rusty water coming out of faucets, especially after a period of inactivity.
Not necessarily “hidden” but it is definitely the most damaging consequence of any major plumbing system leak. Flooding happens when a main line leaks for an extended period of time without fixing it. Flooding can cause numerous issues & lead to serious health hazards if not addressed properly in a timely manner.
As a direct result of flooding & not fixing a leak ASAP, over time water eventually gets soaked into the walls & foundation of your home. Over time this will weaken your property’s structure & cause the concrete foundation to crack & possibly shift. The amount of damage & property value reduction this causes is MASSIVE!
When a water line leaks, it creates a damp environment & a perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. The Centers for Disease Control cites mold and mildew as significant health risks that can produce allergens, irritants, and toxic substances (mycotoxins).
Mold exposure can lead to a variety of respiratory issues, including coughing, wheezing, and exacerbation of asthma symptoms. Some people may also develop allergic reactions, like sneezing, red eyes, and skin rash.
Certain molds produce mycotoxins which, when inhaled, can lead to neurological problems ranging from headaches and dizziness to memory loss and anxiety.
While not a health risk, it’s important to note that a leaking water line can significantly inflate your water bill. Even a small leak can waste thousands of gallons of water per year. In a time where water conservation is becoming increasingly important, this is not something to be overlooked.
Water entering a home can be detrimental to the health and well-being of those living there.
Homes continue to deteriorate when water damage is left untreated. Left to sit, water damage goes through a general timeline:
