Residential End Uses of Water, 2016
The EPA estimates that a small percentage of homes are responsible for a large percentage of the leaks. When there is a leak and it is left unattended, it grows over time wasting more and more water. Aside from the water and monetary waste, water leaks can cause damage to your home and property. Water leaks can also threaten your family’s health. Water leaks foster mold and mildew growth, further damaging your home and putting your family’s health at risk.
Early Signs of a Water Leak
You probably have a pretty good idea of how much your monthly water bill should be. It won’t vary very much, unless you have seasonal irrigation that uses more water during certain months. Keep track of your monthly water bill and usage. If it spikes for no reason, then a water leak is the likely culprit.
If you find water pooling around the perimeter of your home, it could be due to an irrigation or slab leak.
