Health Problems Caused by Water Leaks
While a water leak may not be easily detected, sometimes the symptoms are easy to spot. For example, water leaks are known to increase mold growth. Mold causes a slew of respiratory problems such as:
- Irritated nose, throat, and skin
- Red or itchy eyes
- Coughing, sneezing
- Sinus congestion
What’s worse is, if you already have allergies or respiratory problems, mold and mildew make the issue that much worse. Call us if you notice an uptick in health issues; it may be because of an undetected water leak.

- Hissing or running water sounds
- Damp walls, ceilings or floors
- Spike in the water bill
- Visible mold and mildew
- Lower water pressure
If you notice any of the above signs, you must call a plumbing company right away to find the problem and fix it before you lose any more money or suffer more damage to your home.

How to Find a Water Leak
Water leaks can be challenging to detect if they’re under the foundation or out of sight. The best way to identify a water leak is by checking your usage. Take a reading at the meter. Then, without using any water for a time, recheck the meter. If it registers usage, you have a leak. To pinpoint the problem, call a water leak detection company like Zing Plumbing.
