What Kind of Water/Plumbing Leak Does Your Atlanta Home Have?

September 13th, 2018

You just realized you have a water leak, know what are you going to do? It can be stressful and overwhelming. You may be thinking damage control and see dollar signs because of the wet and moldy drywall, unexplained puddle in the yard, cracking tile, or the warped floors.

What should you do? It may depend on what type of leak you have.

There are leaks that aren’t causing  a lot of damage, but are still costly.

While these leaks are easy to ignore, especially since they aren’t really causing any significant damage. But they are costing you in money and energy. It could be as simple as a toilet that keeps running or a sprinkler without enough pressure to actually water the grass.

Then there is the water leak secretly causing damage and getting worse every day.

These leaks typically occur behind the scenes. Such as between walls, under concrete slabs, slowly dripping under the upstairs bathroom, or behind the kitchen sink. All the time, causing drywall and wood to rot, mold to grow, and repair costs to add up.

Then of course, there is the busted pipe with water pouring out flooding your home or business.

Hopefully you never. Have to experience this, it can easily be overwhelming. It requires immediate attention. This type of leak happens more often with aging water pipes.

No matter what type of water leak you have, it is important to find the source and have it repaired as soon as possible.

“The time between when a leak occurs and when it is discovered is the single greatest factor in determining the amount of damage,” said Fran O’Brien, division president of Chubb North America Personal Risk Services. “Internal water leaks are a leading cause of property damage. With 57 percent of homeowners who have experienced a water leak claim in the past two years spending $5,000 or more on clean up and repair costs — and 15 percent spending $20,000 or more — many are overlooking their exposure at a significant cost.”

While there seems to be an abundant supply of water here in the Atlanta area, that isn’t the case.“Less than 1 percent is available for human use,” according to the Environmental Protection Agency, EPA.

We depend on water, from turning on the sink in the morning to taking our shower at night. “The average American family uses more than 300 gallons of water per day at home. Roughly 70 percent of this use occurs indoors,” says the EPA.
