Water Leak Overview
Small, medium and large water leaks can occur on an exposed or hidden fitting or pipe. Leaks are noticeable when it is on an exposed pipe indoors or outdoors. It is undetectable when water leaks are hidden underneath floor slabs or inside walls. However, interior pipes offer warning signs such as discoloration, mold, musty odor, or damp/wet puddles. Hot water leaks are tricky because warning signs may not be evident other than an increased water bill, but you may see puddles nearby. Meanwhile, outdoor pipes offer warning signs such as a wet spot, very moist soil, unusually tall grass, or unusually green grass. A foul smell accompanies a leaky sewer pipe.
Nevertheless, it is important to detect the leak ASAP. Not discovering the source of a leak or ignoring it will lead to extra work and repair costs. Continuous water leaks will lead to mold, mildew, discoloration, concrete erosion, drywall damage, and rotting/warping/splitting wood. The mold and mildew will aggravate allergies, asthma, and respiratory symptoms and create health problems for people with breathing difficulty. If it continues without repair, you can expect structural damage, sinkholes, and extensive water damage. The results will make your home unsafe to live in.
Water Leak Detection
Detecting water leaks begin by turning off the faucet, shower/tub, washer/dryer, refrigerator, ice maker, coffee/tea makers, timer water softeners, and appliances. Go outside to the water meter and jot down the reading. Wait a few hours without using any water dependent items for the duration. Then go outside again and jot down the new reading. If the number changed during that time, there is a leak somewhere in the house.
While it offers reassurance for you, it's not always a definitive answer. That's where we come in. Contact our water leak detection experts for concrete answers to leak detection. It's a modest cost, but what we will do in exchange is worth every penny. We will use the latest equipment to perform sensitive pressure testing to discover the smallest leak throughout the property. Our training and experience will confirm the leak and resolve the issue before it destroys your property's structure and affects your health.
Water Leak Accuracy
Speaking of location, our professionals can determine the leak's location accurately with the latest equipment. We have several equipment types in our arsenal if needed, but we mainly use two types of equipment. The first device relies on electromagnetic effects to detect water, especially under concrete slabs, supply pipes, and sewer pipes. The second is a special digital camera relying on infrared thermal imaging technology to highlight the smallest water temperature changes through live images. It is sensitive enough to detect hot water leaks and dampness inside insulated walls.
Without the latest equipment to detect leaks, our experts will have no choice but to drill several holes in the wall or floor to discover the leak. After repairing the leak, you must pay additional money to repair the walls, including the walls that didn't house the leak. That's unnecessary stress. Our approach saves you money. After our devices detect the leak, we make an access hole large enough to repair the leak rather than ripping apart a wall. We'll fix the leak and the access hole with minimal disruption for stress-free results. It's like we always say. We treat you and your plumbing right.
