Signs Of Leaks Under The Foundation

Leaks Under Foundation

Leaks Under The Foundation

One of the worst things that could happen is if you have plumbing leaks under the foundation of your home. If your home is newer this is less likely to happen, but older home owners should keep an eye for these signs.

Lower Water Pressure

A decrease in your water pressure can be a sign of a plumbing leak. If you cannot find why your water pressure is decreasing, you need a professional to come out and take a look. A leak under your foundation will require a professional to investigate.

Leaks under a foundation can be investigated by tools that Highmark Plumbing use. Early detection of this type of issue will prevent major issues in the future.

Increase Water Usage

Your water bill shows your water usage for that billing period. If you see a drastic increase but have no reason for the higher usage, it can be a sign of a leak.

If your usage increases over a longer period, it could mean that a small leak is increasing in size.

Consistent Bad Odors

If your home has a new consistent bad musty odor it could be mold or mildew. A leak will provide the damp condition that is perfect for this.

You may see mold, black spots, form on your carpet or the bottom of your walls. A mold smell is often described as similar to wet socks or rotten wood.

Floor Damage Or Damp Floors

Damp carpets without an obvious source, warped hardwood floors, or low spots in your floor can be an indicator of a leak under your foundation.

When this occurs, the plumbing leak should be corrected before any repair to the flooring or walls.

Water Heater Is Constantly Running

Most water tanks make some noise when they are running and heating the water. You may hear water as it enters in and out of your water tank. Your electric or gas bill may see a spike in the monthly costs.

Unexplained Cracks In Your Floors Or Walls

You see a crack developing on one of your walls. Doors in one part of the house are starting to stick. The floor is getting lower in one spot. All of this damage could be signs of a hidden leak in your slab foundation.
