How to Check for Hidden Plumbing Leaks

Last updated 4 years ago

Leaks in your plumbing can waste thousands of gallons of water and damage your home or yard. Identifying these leaks can help you get immediate repairs, saving you money and preventing further water waste.

This video explains how to check for hidden plumbing leaks using a pressure gauge. Attach the gauge to an outdoor faucet and turn off the main water supply. If the gauge drops, this indicates a water leak somewhere in your plumbing. Leave the gauge attached for at least 15 minutes, as a pressure drop may take a few moments to appear.

Hidden plumbing leaks waste water and increase your monthly water bill. Get the help you need to identify and repair large or small leaks with Expert Plumbing Service of Naperville, Joliet, and New Lenox. Call (708) 231-4792 or reach us using our web contact form
