Water Leak Detection

Water leaks can be expensive. You can check for leaks to avoid surprises on your water bill. You'll save money. Bonus: you'll save water, too!

You might need to hire a professional to find and repair a leak. If your leak is severe you might want to turn the water off to prevent damage. 

Think you have a leak? Take a look at these common leak types:

  1. Check Toilets
  2. Check Faucets
  3. Check for Underground Leaks

Place a few drops of food coloring into the tank after it has filled and quieted, then watch for color to appear in the toilet bowl.  If there is a leak, then color should appear within 15-30 minutes.  Two common leak sites are at the overflow pipe and the flapper valve. It's usually a cheap fix, but if you aren't comfortable doing the work yourself, you may want to contact a licensed plumber.
