The only drip you should hear in your home is the drip of your coffee maker in the morning.
Any other drips from a leak in a pipe or a faucet can drain anywhere from 3 to 15 gallons of water per day, and lead to mold or mildew in your home.
If you don’t actually hear a drip, keep a close eye on your water bills for an unexplained spike in usage.
This is not the time to go the DIY route. You need a professional to diagnose the problem and fix it.
Some homeowners find a pinhole leak in a copper water pipe and think it can be fixed simply by soldering it. Some day, that patch will fail, perhaps while you’re away on vacation.
If a leak is big enough, shut off the main water supply and call the Plumbing Professionals at Lewis MacLean.
Then find the lowest faucet and open it to drain out the piping. Try not to jostle the pipe because too much force can cause a bigger crack.
The 24-hour residential plumbing professionals at Lewis MacLean will work with you to ensure your home is operating at peak efficiency.
