If you have this problem, there are a few things you can do. One thing you could do is check the water pressure. The ‘safe zone’ for your water pressure is 30-50 psi. If the water pressure is beyond 60 psi for an extended period time, the pressure may become a problem. If leaky pipes is the case for you, give our trusted techs at Patrick's Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 352-236-0400. We’ll be happy to assist.
If you think you have a leak but you’re not sure where it could be, here’s a simple way you can check. Look at your water meter, view and make a note of the level. Make sure nobody is using any water in your house for one to two hours. Then go back and check the level. If the level has changed, then you likely have a leak. Definitely call Patrick's Heating & Air Conditioning so we can take care of that problem for you!
