I am no DIY person and my story may sound odd/silly to some but here it is:
Firstly I live in a maisonette (ground floor) and for the past week I can hear constant flow of water from my cold mains pipe. Secondly, my shower is not as strong as it was (unsure if this coincided with the pipe issue); thirdly, the cold pipe underneath my kitchen sounds like water is constantly running as well.
When I close the water mains to test if this will stop; behold it did not. I have not got the central heating turned on and I doubt if my neighbour upstairs has her's turned on 24/7. There are no leaks as I have checked all the taps, pipes and my GCH system.
I am puzzled as to what is going on? someyimes I am woken up because of this water running noise as the pipe is inside my bedroom! I never had this issue before! :(
Has anyone heard of this or am I jusy being paranoid? Please help or advice, thank you! :D
You can sometims hear water running through the water mains outside, this noise will travel up the mains pipe feeding your house, but it's unusual if you've never heard it before. Could it have always been there but you've only just noticed it ?
Have you asked neighbours if they have the same problem, has someone gone on holiday nearby and maybe left a tap running ?
