The water supply lines carry freshwater to the dwelling, not sewage. Water is supplied by municipalities or well systems. Water service enters at the meter base (the point where the main meets the inside pipe). All incoming water must be maintained so it does not freeze in cold climates. Water leaks can occur anywhere along that supply line to the house; including within your walls or ceiling. Of all places you don’t want a leak, this would be one of them. Water traveling through your wall creates a mold that cannot be seen but contributes to respiratory illnesses like asthma and allergies (it also eats away at your home’s structure). This means you need to hire an experienced plumber who knows how to cut walls and ceilings (basic knowledge) to repair the leak.
