Burst pipe with water spraying out from the side

Always React Quickly to Leaking Pipes

If you have a pipe that’s leaking inside your home, chances are you will notice it rather quickly. Water seeping through your walls or ceiling is a good indication that something is wrong and it is a difficult thing to ignore. Those types of situations are obviously no-brainers, but if there is a leak in your water lines outside of your house, it can be a little more difficult to detect. Fortunately, there are some things you can look for out that will alert you if this does become a serious problem. 

At Benicia Plumbing, we are well-known as leak experts and have saved homeowners countless amounts of money over the years. So, we are happy to be sharing this information with all of our Bay Area readers. 

One of the very first places to look for signs of any leaks outside your home is your water bill. While it may not be exactly the same every month, the chances are that it will generally stay within a certain range. And if you use a lot of water one month for any reason, you'll probably be aware of it. But if your water bill suddenly spikes up for no particular reason, a leaky pipe somewhere might just be the culprit.

Keep in mind that unexplained puddles on your property can also be an indication that a pipe located underground is leaking. If you do see this, call us at Benicia Plumbing immediately. Repairing underground pipe leaks is a challenging job that requires specialized equipment, so it's surely not a do-it-yourself project.
