For those who experience low water pressure, there’s a good chance you may have a water leak issue, particularly if you hear a hissing sound coming from your pipes.
Detecting the source of the leak can involve investigative measures. The first thing you should do is check your water meter. Gauging your meter and noticing unusually high numbers can help in identifying the source of a water leak.
From there, turn off all appliances that consume any water, such as faucets, showers and dishwashers. If these appliances are off but you hear water running, this is a good sign of a leak. Faucets are easy to check, as a leaky faucet will drip regardless of all appliances being turned off.
In addition, toilets can be a source of water leakage that waste a great deal of water. Check the tank, as something as simple as untangling the chain or adjusting the float bulb may be causing the problem.
