The meaning of "Leak" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa There’s leak now in my house?
A: @Annie_James “Is there a leak at your house?” But a leak is pretty generic, so I’d ask, “Is a pipe leaking at your place?” If it’s the roof, we’d ask about that instead.
Q: O que significa This is not what I take a leak with either?

Q: O que significa leaks?
A: A 'leak' is when the contents of something (such as liquid in a container) manages to escape or seep out through a hole or a crack.

For example, if there is a leak in a water pipe, it means that water is escaping (dripping or flowing out of) the pipe through a hole or crack that should not be there.

The term 'leak' can also refer to secret information that is exposed (especially concerning governments, politicians, or personal information).

In this context, a 'leak' refers particularly to information that was obtained illegitimately and/or published without authorization (such as the result of a computer network being hacked, or a 'whistleblower' exposing the information without their employer's permission).
Q: O que significa take a leak?
A: It's informal, something you might say to your friends quickly before getting up. "I've gotta go take a leak." I would not use this in any formal situation.
