Our local plumbing company wanted to take part in 2014’s National Fix a Leak Week by sharing some information with our valued customers about leak detection and leak repair. Because every year U.S. households waste over a trillion gallons of water, we’re urging local residents to help bring this number down. Sometimes fixing leaks is easy (check out our Easy Leak Repair Guide), and sometimes it is more challenging because in order to do a leak repair in Crown Point, Northwest Indiana & South Cook County, Illinois, you first must find the water leak! Reichelt Plumbing’s certified plumbers would be more than happy to get you the leak detection service that you need, but first let’s find out if you have a leak.
How will I know if there is a water leak in my home?
If a leak isn’t obvious like a dripping faucet or noisy toilet, you’ll need to do a little investigative work. Try this:
Take a reading from your water meter.
Wait 2 hours without using any water.
Check the water meter again.
Has your water meter’s reading changed? If so, you probably have a leak!
You can also get an idea of whether or not you have a leak by looking at your water bill. If suddenly you receive a bill that is much higher than normal, chances are you’ve sprung a leak. A family of four typically uses less than 12,000 gallons of water in a month, so this should give you an idea of how many gallons your family should use.
Once you’ve determined that you have a leak, it’s time to get a leak repair. By repairing the leak, you’ll not only help to conserve water, but you’ll also save money month after month on your water bill. Reichelt Plumbing can help you with any type of leak repair, including toilet leaks, faucet leaks, pipe leaks, and slab leaks. We can even install new plumbing fixtures or do repiping when needed.
