Ways to Detect a Leak in Your Home | Roto-Rooter Blog

A residential plumbing customer recently asked one of our Roto-Rooter plumbers for some advice regarding a possible leak. We thought it would be useful to share their experience. The plumbing customer had been receiving abnormally high water bills and was worried they had a leak lurking somewhere within their home. The suggestion: First, put some food coloring dye into the tanks of your toilets, without flushing. If the water bowl changes color, you have leaky flappers. If nothing happens, you can move on to inspect your faucets for leaks. Lastly, if you still haven’t found anything, you can shut off every fixture and watch your meter. If the meter is spinning, you most likely have an underground leak and will need leak detection service to locate the leak. Our Seattle plumbers are fully equipped to provide this service and would be happy to assist you. For scheduling, we can be reached at (206) 935-6600 or visit our web site to schedule service online.
