Champion Plumbing offers 4 easy tips to identify and prevent hidden leaks before the holidays | National Business
OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov. 18, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The holidays can be a very busy time, and plumbing challenges can wreak havoc on the logistics of holiday get-togethers, family visits, and special events. Champion Plumbing, a leader in plumbing for the Oklahoma City area, has compiled four simple tips to identify and prevent hidden leaks before meals are planned and guests arrive.
“Hidden leaks can be a big problem in plumbing,” said Brent Harpole, co-owner of Champion Plumbing. “When you combine leaks with the holiday season, the end result can be extremely uncomfortable, costly, and time-consuming. The last thing you want during the vacation is an unexpected line failure that inevitably needs to be fixed. “
Harpole and the Champion Plumbing team share the following tips to help you prepare for the holidays:
- Visually check your home. Check your walls, ceilings, and floors. Key signs that you could have a leak include discolored areas, damaged wallpaper or paint, and warped or cracked floors. Mold and mildew growth should be treated immediately, both for safety reasons and to avoid additional damage from a leak.
- Check all fastenings. Take a few minutes to check all water supplies, including outside connections. Make sure your vanity and shower faucets, shower heads, and toilets are all working properly and that no water seeps under or behind the faucets.
- Follow your nose. Do you occasionally smell a hint of mustache? What about a constant odor in a certain area of your home? This could indicate that you have a leak somewhere. Water damage can create a stale or putrid odor that is usually present in damp, dark areas with no access to air circulation or sunlight.
- Check your water meter. Shut off all water in your home. If your water meter shows that water is still flowing, there is a good chance you have a leak somewhere. If you find there must be a leak but can’t find it, contact a professional plumber for a visit. The experts can help you find the leak and develop a plan of action to fix it.
“If you plan to have additional visitors to your home, it is best to find leaks now before the guests arrive,” said Harpole. “The added strain on pipelines from increased usage can potentially turn a small leak into a large one, which can cause a lot of damage and headaches to a homeowner during a ceremony.”
Homeowners should consider reaching out to a licensed professional to confirm hidden leaks and determine what steps should be taken to prevent future leaks.
