There are a lot of signs that you may have a water leak in your bathroom. Decreased water pressure, lack of hot water, larger than normal water bills, damp walls, and a constant sound of running or dripping water are just a few of the signs that something may be going on, and it can often be difficult to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem. This difficulty is the reason why Hilton Plumbing offers bathroom leak testing services.
Internal leaks in the bathroom can be a very serious issue. Generally, the issues stem from the fact that they are so hard to detect, and extensive damage can happen in a relatively short amount of time.
Seeing water dripping from a tap and pipe leaks are easy to spot. However, there are other issues that can point to serious plumbing leaks:
Broken Floor Tile
A broken tile can often be seen as an aesthetic issue, but it is often a sign of water damage. The tiles are no longer protecting the subflooring or the walls, and water can be absorbed or seep into the structural parts of the home.
Ajar Shower Door
A shower door that won’t close all the way can be a sign that you have an internal water leak. The damage to the shower will cause it to expand and make the door no longer fit into place.
Moulded Grout and Caulk
A shower or bath that always looks dirty due to mould on the grout and caulk could be a leak. The constant moisture causes the mould to grow at a rapid pace, leaving your bath looking black and mouldy.
If you notice any of these problems, don’t delay in scheduling one of our professional plumbers for a leak detection service. We can offer a free quote and competitive prices on any issues that are found during the bathroom leak testing.
