How To Troubleshoot Plumbing Problems

How to Troubleshoot Plumbing Problems Step 1 High water usage Listen for dripping sounds in your home while there is little or no activity, such as early in the morning, or late at night, when the house is very quiet.Dripping may not seem to waste significant amounts of water, over the course of day, each individual drop adds up to thousands and thousands of drops, or gallons and gallons of water. Step 2O Check the evidence of a leak along the base board of walls near the location of your plumbing fixtures Pipes that contain water under pressure can become corroded, develop loose fittings, or crack because of freezing, allowinga continuous loss of water until repaired. Step 3 O Take a Look under vanities and sinks for drips evidence noted in the previous step Use a flashlight to follow the path of exposed pipes, looking for droplets of water that will accumulate at the lower section before dropping off, and run your fingertips along these pipes to feel for wetness. Step 4O Check your commodes/bathrooms, to determine if they are running at unusual intervals. When there is a seal leak in the water closet (toilet), the tank will drain slowly over a period of time, until the water level drops sufficiently for the float valve to open and replenish it. Step 5O Check your water meter ultrasonic 63123456 Locate your water meter, read the amount displayed, note it, then wait an hour or two, and reread it to see if water has gone through it when none was being used in your home. Very small leaks will not appear to move the meter over a short period of time, so these will be harder to detect using this method.
