Do you suspect that your home or building has a water leak? Certain warning signs can indicate that it is time for a professional inspection.

Signs You Have a Plumbing Leak
Plumbing leaks can be very tricky. While a burst pipe or flood are more obvious, there are several subtle signs that your plumbing system is leaking. Additionally, identifying the leak's location and what is causing it can be difficult as often the problem and where the leak occurs is not the same location. This is why it is important to contact a professional leak detection plumber, like ours, if you see any of the following warning signs.
You may have a water leak if:
- There are water stains on your ceilings, walls, or floors
- You smell mildew or mold in your home
- There are cracks in your ceilings or walls, or paint is bubbling or peeling
- You hear the sound of dripping or running water when your faucets and appliances are off
- There is excess moisture or humidity in your home
- Your water bills are higher than usual, and you can’t explain why
A sure-fire way to determine if you have a plumbing leak is to turn off all the water inside and outside of your home or property. If your water meter continues ticking, or the dial is moving when everything is turned off, you likely have a leak. The leak detection plumbers at 5 Star Plumbing, Heating & Air are experts on diagnosing and treating plumbing leaks.
What Causes Water Leaks?
Though you may be aware of a leak somewhere in your home or structure, it can be exceedingly difficult to know where the leak occurs or how it began. The sound of the leak in a particular area of your home may not be near the source of the problem. Our Inland Empire plumbers are experienced and capable of thoroughly inspecting the real cause of the problem. We even offer superior slab leak detection services.
Common causes of water leaks include:
- Buildup from hard water
- Corrosion and rust in your piping
- Damaged or dented pipes
- Old water lines that are in disrepair
- Root intrusion from trees and shrubs near your water lines and sewer lines
- Worn out or broken connections
- Pressure problems
No matter what is causing your plumbing leak, our Inland Empire leak detection experts will figure it out. We will then provide you with all of your repair options and educate you on how to prevent plumbing leaks from reoccurring in the future.
We Offer Video Camera Leak Detection
Not all leaks are visible on the surface. If you have a leak deep in your sewer line, for example, traditional leak detection methods don’t always work. 5 Star Plumbing, Heating & Air is proud to offer homeowners and commercial property owners in the Inland Empire video camera leak detection services. With a video camera inspection, you get a real-time look at your plumbing system and pinpoint accurate leak detection. When you want to work with a plumber that makes customer service a priority, call us.
