Tips for Checking Your Plumbing

If you’ve never touched a wrench and have no idea where your home’s maze of pipes begins and ends, your chances of filling the shoes of a skilled, qualified plumber are next to nil. The good news is you don’t need to know the difference from a ball valve and hose bib to stay ahead of costly water damages caused by leaky pipes and faulty plumbing problems in your home. You just need your eyes to lead you to potential plumbing problems.

Staying Ahead of Plumbing Problems

Plumbing system problems rank top among the leading source of residential water damages, with 48 percent greater losses than the second leading source, according to water damage studies conducted by Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS).

When water appears in a place it shouldn’t–be it dampness, a slow drip, or a puddle-making stream–it’s a good indicator to call in a professional. But because plumbing system failures losses result in an average cost of $5,092 after the insurance deductible was paid, waiting until you see moisture is sometimes too late.
