Common Sources of Water Leaks

With decades of hands-on experience, our plumbing specialists are familiar with common causes of leaks. We can work fast to rule out any hidden issues before they get worse. Here are some possible sources of leaks in your home or business: 

  • Unsealed toilet valves: Often, leaks in toilets go unnoticed because they are silent. A common issue is with the flapper valve, which can become worn and fail to seal properly, causing water to leak continuously from the tank into the bowl.
  • Dripping faucets: Dripping faucets are more than annoying—they're also wasteful. Even a slow drip can significantly increase your water bill. Leaky faucets are typically caused by a worn-out washer or O-ring. Fortunately, this type of leak is usually an easy and affordable fix.
  • Worn-out piping: Old or damaged pipes can develop leaks over time. These leaks can be hidden within walls or under floors, making them difficult to detect without specialized equipment. Our leak detection experts can carefully inspect your piping to locate and resolve tough-to-find leaks. 
  • Corroded water heaters: Over time, water heaters can develop leaks due to corrosion or other failures. Leaks can appear at the base of the tank or from the inlet and outlet connections.
  • Washer and dryer connections: Hoses connected to washing machines can become loose or wear out, leading to leaks. Regularly inspecting these hoses can prevent a small leak from becoming a major flood.
  • Under-the-sink pipes: Similar to faucets, the pipes under your sink can also be a source of leaks, often due to loose connections or failing seals. This can lead to additional damage to cabinets and floors if left unaddressed.
  • Leaky roofs: Leaks from the roof can allow water to seep into the structure of your home, leading to mold and water damage inside your walls and ceilings. Regular roof inspections can help prevent these types of leaks.

Watching out for these common leak sources is important to stay vigilant and prevent costly damage to your property. By calling our plumbers to treat your leak as soon as possible, you can prevent expensive repairs while protecting your hard-earned investment in Missoula. Our team offers 24/7 emergency services to resolve these issues before they worsen into major issues, giving you peace of mind that your home or business is taken care of!

Signs You Have a Water Leak

As a property owner, it can be tricky to tell when you have a leak or not—but investing in fast detection is critical to protecting your investment and preventing large-scale property damage. Here are some telltale signs you have a water leak: 

  • Surging water bills: A sudden spike in your water bill often signals a leak, especially if your water usage habits haven't changed.
  • Sounds of running water: The sound of water running without a faucet, shower, or appliance can indicate a hidden leak in your walls or floors, signaling the need for professional leak detection.
  • Musty smell: Persistent, musty odors without an apparent source can be a sign of mold or mildew growth due to excess moisture from leaks.
  • Wet spots or water stains on floors and walls: Unexplained dampness on floors, walls, or ceilings suggests a potential leak is present, causing water to seep through these surfaces.
  • Cracks in your foundation: Over time, leaks can erode the soil beneath your home, leading to foundation cracks and structural instability.
  • Mold and mildew: Excessive moisture from a leak creates the perfect environment for mold and mildew to flourish, often visible in corners, on walls, or near water sources.

Dangers of Hidden Leaks in Your Plumbing System

Left unresolved, water leaks can get worse, leading to significant expenses down the road. Here are some dangers of untreated leaks: 

  • Structural damage: Continuous water leaks can weaken the structural integrity of your home by rotting wooden supports and corroding metal reinforcements.
  • Mold and mildew growth: Mold and mildew thrive in damp environments caused by water leaks, often leading to expensive removal services while increasing the risk of negative health consequences. 
  • Increased water bills: Even a small leak can lead to a significant increase in your water bill over time, wasting money and resources.
  • Electrical hazards: Water leaks in or near electrical wiring can pose serious safety risks, including the potential for electrical shorts and fires.
  • Foundation problems: Water accumulation from leaks can erode the soil around your foundation, causing shifting, cracks, and potentially catastrophic damage to the integrity and structure of your property. 
  • Pest infestations: Moisture can attract a variety of pests like termites, roaches, and rodents, leading to further damage and adverse health effects.
  • Water waste: Untreated leaks contribute to water waste, leading to increased expenses on your monthly bills.
