What is a water supply pipe leak?

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.

  1. 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.

  2. Unexplained Increase in Water Bills: Sudden spikes in your water bills may be a sign of a hidden leak.

Hidden dangers of a leaking water line

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.

Water Damage Timeline

Homes continue to deteriorate when water damage is left untreated. Left to sit, water damage goes through a general timeline:

Within minutes:

  • Carpets, padding beneath flooring, subflooring becomes saturated.
  • Furniture on wet carpets begins to leach and stain.
  • Wood and wood products begin absorbing water.
  • Personal belongings, such as photos and paperwork may be destroyed


Within Hours

  • Humidity begins to make the house stink.
  • Furniture in contact with water delaminates and swells.
  • Particleboard cabinetry and furniture distorts and weakens, crumbling over time.
  • Dyes from non-colorfast fabrics bleed (clothing stored together, upholstery, etc.).
  • In 48 hours or less, clean or grey water can deteriorate to black water, and in areas that experience water intrusion, clean water can rapidly become toxic.


Within Days

  • Fungi and mold become visible and cause musty odors
  • Allergen sensitivities can be caused by microbial organisms.
  • Wood may severely warp and cup, making most wooden floors unsalvageable.
  • Painted walls blister, and wallpaper begins to peel away.
  • Structural wood within the home, such as framing, begins to swell and split.


Within Weeks

  • Home is hazardous to human health and must be evacuated.
  • Mold infests organic materials, rendering them unsalvageable.
  • Drywall crumbles while the home’s structural integrity declines.
  • Damage to the foundation becomes apparent.
  • Home may be salvageable but may need to be gutted down to the studs.


Within Months

  • Damage to the foundation may be significant.
  • The cost of repairs is likely more than the home’s value.
  • Damage that could have been prevented over time (i.e., neglect) disqualifies the owner from insurance claims.
  • The home may be unsalvageable.

What causes a water leak?

  • Aging pipes / Corrosion: Over time, pipes naturally deteriorate due to aging & corrosion.
  • Poor installation: Poor workmanship or using sub-standard materials.
  • Abrasion: Tree roots or rocks underground rubbing against the pipe.
  • Shifting soil: Earthquakes or vibrations from nearby construction can also cause stress on underground pipes.
  • Accidental damage: Property renovation, yard work, or construction accidents are common. Use caution when digging!
