Here's a checklist for detecting leaks in the laundry or utility room:
- Under the Sink: Check for pooling water under pipe connections.
- Clothes Washer: Check for pooling water, which could indicate a supply line leak.
- Water Heater: Check beneath the tank for pooling water, rust or other signs of leakage.
- Throughout the House: Check for signs of moisture or mold on your walls, ceilings or floors. This could indicate that a pipe is leaking behind the wall.
