Most of the homes in Los Angeles have recirculating lines, we have found over the years that most of the time the leaks are caused by pin hole leaks on this system. It’s important to install a timer to prevent wear and tear on the line which is typically 1/2″ or 3/4″ in diameter.
Some of the signs of a leak are, warm floors, hardwood flooring is starting to buckle, stains on ceiling or walls, higher water bills, water moisture coming out from a concrete footing.
