Be On the Lookout For Typical Household Leaks

Be On the Lookout For Typical Household Leaks

As a homeowner in Murfreesboro, TN, of course you are looking to conserve your energy and water bills, save money and live a care-free life. Unfortunately, the common household plumbing leaks can put a bit of a damper on those goals. Be sure to be on the lookout for the common types of household leaks.

Bathtub Leaks

If you have an upstairs bathroom, you may notice that the ceiling in the level below contains multiple watermarks, or one large stain. This could very well be caused by leak from the shower or bathtub in the upstairs bathroom. Over time pipes clog, parts corrode, lose functionality or simplly break due to overuse. This could cause your bathtub or shower to leak into the level below. 

That Aggravating Leak

If you have a plumbing appliance that will not stop dripping, no matter how hard you try, you could be slowly but surely increasing your monthly water bills and decreasing your savings. In addition, this leak could be harmful to the integrity of your plumbing system. The cause may simply be old age or broken parts, but it is still best to consult a professional plumber if you are unable to alleviate the dripping fixture.

Toilet Leak

The most common household leak occurs in the toilet. When the flush valve is stuck or broken, water from the tank will leak into the bowl at a constant rate, therefore wasting water. This common issue is not easily detected, so if you suspect that you are wasting water via your toilet, contact your local plumbing service as soon as possible to diagnose the true cause of the leak.

Washing Machine Leak


From loose connections to broken parts to overuse, the washing machine can leak as well. This is why it is always important to keep your washing machine far away from any valuable household items or assets. It is especially important to have a plumber inspect your washing machine for leaks due to the complicated parts and processes involved.
