I had a guest in the basement. The cleaning lady came to clean after the guest left. I asked the cleaning lady if everything is ok or if there any damages. The cleaning lady suspected a leak under the sink. I looked the floor was wet but the pipes were dry. I dried out the floor and the interior of the underneath cabinet then turned on the water for a minute. I did not see a leak. The area was dry. The pipes from top till the end were dry. I checked back in 30 minutes and it was still dry. I tried the same test again and again no leakage noted. I don’t want to call for a plumber for a wrong suspicion that someone else made. How long should the water run to test for any leak? Thank you very much in advance
Leak or not leak, that is the question.
The crime scene:
Evidance of a crime was found.
Wet floor. What caused it and it is no longer there?
Sink got clogged and the mysterious visitor panicked from the wrath of the home owner.
Visitor took action to unclog the sink. Unscrewed the drain (only hand tied). Removed the the pipe and unclogged it while spilled water in the process.
I use this leak sensors to make me sleep, without worries.
It will even inform you on your phone when you are not at home.
I placed sensors at each possible location. Under sink, next to washing machine, next to dishwasher
