End Expensive Water Leaks in Your Shreveport Home
An ordinary home wastes 2,000 to 20,000 gallons of water every year on account of leaks, according to the Alliance for Water Efficiency.
Dripping faucets and leaky water heaters are easy to locate. But other leaks like toilet flapper valves or broken water supply lines can go unnoticed for a long time.
A water leak can be costly. You’re paying for surplus water you don’t need, and leaks can be catastrophic to your home.
That’s why it’s critical to locate and stop minimal leaks.

6 Signs You Could Have a Plumbing Leak
Finding and taking care of leaks are the most popular calls we field for plumbing services. Catching a leak right away can help you avoid costly water damage. Some leaks may be harder to find than others, but there are a couple telltale signs that you need to get in touch with a plumber in Shreveport. Here are the top six:
- Your water bill is more expensive than normal.
- Your pipes often make thumping sounds.
- There are reddish stains in your toilet, or your water is rust colored.
- Floors or walls feel damp or soft.
- You see water stains on the ceiling or walls.
- There’s moist soil or erosion near your residence’s foundation.
How to Figure Out if You Have a Leak
If you think you have a leak but can’t locate the evidence, check your water meter:
- Ensure no water is being used inside or outside your home.
- Check the leak indicator on your water meter. The indicator is commonly a triangular dial or miniature silver disc. If the dial is moving, you probably have a leak.
We can find the point of the leak and get it repaired before you spend more money or possibly damage your home.
Common Places for Water Leaks
With all the spots water is used in your home, there are a lot of areas you could uncover a leak.
