  • Under sinks and washtubs.
  • Inside access panels near showers, sinks or appliances.
  • Attachments to toilets, water heaters and appliances.
  • Basements and crawl spaces.

If you spot any of the above signs with your plumbing, consult a plumbing professional as soon as possible. If your water supply comes from a well, you may also want to get it tested. Water chemistry is often at fault for many common plumbing problems.
