How Serious is That Water Leak?

Unfortunately, leaks often occur in unseen places (in the walls, under sinks, in crawl spaces, or underground) where they are not detected for weeks or months. According to the American Water Works Association (source:, leaks in pipes waste (per 24-hours, at 40 pounds of water pressure):

  • 1/32″ leak – 170 gallons
  • 1/16″ leak – 970 gallons
  • 1/8″ leak – 3600 gallons

To give you perspective, a 1/16” leak is the size of a pencil point.

How Much is That Leak Costing You?best leak detection repair charlotte nc area

You probably don’t realize how much a pipe leak can cost you, but experts estimate that a hairline crack (1/16”) can cost you between $100-$600 just for the monthly water usage alone. Other costs include:

  • Damage to your home, including repairs needed for walls, insulation, ceilings, flooring, foundation materials, etc.
  • Property damage, including landscaping problems due to water erosion/sinkholes, etc.
  • Repairs related to mold and mildew damage
  • Health-related costs (if the leaking results in mold)

Signs You May Have a Water or Sewer Pipe Leak

It’s not uncommon for leaks to go unnoticed for weeks or even months, driving up your bills, damaging your property, and causing problems that may require costly repairs. This happens because your water and sewer pipes are hidden behind walls and under the ground.

You should have a professional check your pipes for leaks if you see any of the following signs:

  • Your water bill rises unexpectedly
  • You see pooling of water in your yard somewhere
  • You see water bubbling in a part of your yard
  • You find water in your basement or crawl space
  • You find a water leak in an unexpected place, such as under a sink or through a ceiling
  • Your toilet keeps running
  • You begin to have mildew and mold problems in the home
