Sources of Water Leak

First, water heaters may have a leak. A common source is from the temperature and pressure relief valve.

Another source of water leakage could come from your toilet. A clogged drain, or other reasons, may cause a toilet to overflow. Your toilet may also leak from the tank or base.

A worn out rubber wash may cause your shower head to leak. Since your shower head is located above your bathtub or shower there may be little to no water damage to your home. However, it may be an issue you would still like to address.

Similar to toilets and a shower head, sinks may also have a leak that can be solved with a quick solution.

Broken or leaky pipes may also be a cause of water leaks within your home.

A DIY leak location may result in excessive drywall cuts throughout your home. A leak within your walls may be the result of a broken or slow leaking pipe.
