How to Recognize the Signs of a Home Water Leak

Unchecked water leaks can quickly turn into huge water bills. The best way to prevent severe and costly damage from leaks is to routinely check for leaks so you can catch them early. You can use the following water leak detection tips to spot problems in your home and report them to a plumbing repair professional.

  • Visit Water Meter: Check your water meter immediately if you suspect a leak. The meter’s leak detector and water flow dial should be able to help you confirm a suspected plumbing problem—quickly spinning leak detectors and erratically moving flow dials are common signs of a problem. You can ask your local plumbing service for detailed tips on reading your water meter.
     
  • Inspect Accessible Plumbing: Some leaks can be spotted easily. For example, the plumbing that runs under kitchen and bathroom sinks can be inspected with the help of a flashlight.  You can also easily check the water lines running through from your appliances. Keep a close eye on this piping and watch the nearby floor for wet spots. Any increase in moisture near these pipes can likely be followed back to a small leak. You can minimize risks of structural damage and mold intrusion by spotting these leaks in the trickle stage.
     
  • Scan High-Risk Areas: Some areas, such as ceilings and basements, are at a higher risk for leak problems. The most efficient method for keeping these problems under control is to keep a close eye on them. Regular maintenance visits from a plumbing professional can help keep problem areas under control, too.

No two water leaks are the same. Make sure your pluming company of choice has tons of experience with all types of Sacramento homes—look for companies like Ace Plumbing with multiple decades in the business. We can be reached at (916) 455-4548, 24-hours a day.

Common Problems that Can Afflict Old and Poorly-Maintained Air Conditioners

Air conditioners are rarely designed to run longer than a decade. In fact, heating and cooling units often develop unique problems during the end of their service life. Keep reading to learn about some of the common problems that can occur in old or poorly-maintained air conditioners. 

  • Part Failures: Air conditioners, like all appliances, require mechanical upkeep from time to time. After all, the delicate components inside your AC will naturally begin to wear down. Regular part replacements, cleanings, and small corrections prevent this routine wear from developing into a serious breakdown. Dented fans, overheated coils, and undercharged refrigerant are all severe problems that are commonly associated with maintenance failure.
     
  • Electrical Problems: AC units use a complex system of moving parts and chemicals to cool your home. Many of these systems depend on precise wiring, too. Unfortunately, frayed and torn wires are common in older air conditioners—so make sure your air conditioner gets regular electrical checkups. Failure to keep your electrical wires in good shape could result in expensive energy bills and dangerous fire hazards. Thankfully, routine repair from an AC expert greatly minimizes these risks.
     
  • Costly Replacements: Regular air conditioner maintenance is typically inexpensive and quick. You can expect an AC technician to visit your home, inspect the unit for damage, and replace any worn or damaged parts. Poorly maintained and old air conditioners will have much more demanding maintenance needs. You should strongly consider a replacement air conditioner if your family is spending hundreds of dollars on AC maintenance. These funds could be better spent as an investment in a new, high-efficiency air conditioner.

Preparing for Your Next Plumbing Problem

Although well-designed plumbing can survive for decades, there are a number of factors that may reduce the effectiveness and longevity of your pipes. Read on to learn about the pipe and heating issues that threaten most homeowners and how a plumber can help.

Leaks

Even small drips in faucets can significantly inflate a water bill if left unattended. Thankfully, a plumber can typically handle these repairs with little effort. Relatively urgent pipe leaks, however, are caused by corrosive elements within the pipe. Leaks between walls are especially problematic, because they are difficult to detect. In addition to wasted water, long-term pipe leaks can leave your home more vulnerable to mold growth. Avoid these problems with annual home inspections by a local plumber.

Clogged Drains

Clogged sewer drains can cause all manner of inconveniences for households. Rancid smells and slow drains are likely symptoms of sewage lines on the verge of a complete clog. Excess hair, coagulated oils, and root intrusions also contribute to debilitating sewage blockage. The worst case scenario includes backup sewage returning to your home. Speak with a plumber if you suspect your drains may be starting to back up.

Hot Water Loss

Not much is worse than discovering your morning shower has been ruined by a surprise torrent of frigid water. Water heater failures have many potential sources. A leaking water tank is a symptom that’s easy to identify, but many problems will likely require the assistance of a professional to locate.
