You're lying in bed on a dark and stormy night, but you're not afraid -- after all, the noise is only thunder, the flashes from the window only lightning. But then you hear a mysterious, angry-sounding hammering within the walls. You get up to see what's wrong, only to discover that your feet are bathed in water. You're not in a haunted house after all -- it's your plumbing that's causing the nightmare!
As a new homeowner, you may find that common household plumbing issues like pipe leaks and dripping faucets are mystifying. Dripping faucets are a common problem, but they're more serious than many homeowners realize. With so many different pipe connections and faucets in a house, that's a lot of different areas at risk of a leak. The good news is that you have control over your home's risk of many leaks.
