Seemingly small water leaks can easily lead to bigger issues that destroy your home, building, and belongings. Detecting a leak early and getting it checked out soon, will help lower the chance of major issues occuring.
One of the single most devastating forces on a home behind fire is water. Water leaks, no matter how minor, can create lasting damage inside the walls, ceiling, flooring, and other areas of the home that can impact the health of those living inside. Small leaks can quickly snowball into bigger leaks, so getting ahead of potential leaks can save you significant money and stress.
There are some key signs to look for that indicate you may have a water leak in your home:
Minor leaks, such as those caused by pinpoint holes in the roofing or fissures in the interior plumbing, can cause damage over time that can accumulate and require major repairs. Look for signs of water leakage by inspecting all visible interior piping, inspecting your walls for spots of moisture, checking underneath sinks for warping wood, searching for staining on your ceilings and looking at your visible fixtures.
Often, more significant leaks can occur that cause immediate and expensive damage to your home. Slab leaks result from ruptured pipes within the foundation of your home. Signs of a slab leak can be found in unexplained pools of water accumulating outside of your home, moist carpet or wood flooring, and warped flooring.

Your AC system has two condensation drains. The primary one should flow continuously when your system is running normal, but can become clogged. When this happens, the secondary drain kicks in. This is typically a PVC pipe just barely sticking out over a window seal. If you notice water dripping from here, you should immediately address your AC system before it causes major water damage!
