  • Water pressure changes: A sudden drop in water pressure can indicate a possible burst pipe. Check faucets and toilets to detect abnormal changes in pressure.
  • Water discoloration: This can mean outside material has entered a burst pipe or line. This indicates a problem, often, with exterior plumbing.
  • Odors: If tap or other water entering the dwelling has an unpleasant odor, a leaky or burst pipe could be the cause.
  • Unusual noises: Banging, humming, pressure sounds, etc., in your water line when faucets are turned on needs attention, even if not a burst pipe. 
  • Water marks: These need professional inspection ASAP when appearing on walls, ceilings, flooring, drywall, etc. 
  • Water cost spikes: If a bill clearly doesn't match your known usage, a burst pipe or line could be hiding somewhere.
