How Can I Fix a Leak or Know It’s There When It’s Hidden?
These are the big questions people ask. Since most piping in a building is disguised from sight behind walls and down in concrete, it’s tough to actually know leaks are even happening in the first place—let alone finding where the leak is. But there are warning signs to watch for that will indicate you need leak detection:
- Rise in water bills: If you find your water bills are higher than they’ve ever been even though you aren’t using more water than normal, it’s likely you’ve got a leak. Check the reading on your water meter, then shut off all water use for an hour. If the meter reading changes, you have a leak somewhere.
- Discoloration spots on walls and ceilings: Even a small leak can create damage to building material, particularly drywall. Some of the first indications this is happening are reddish–brown discoloration spots on the walls or ceiling.
- A drop in water pressure: Large leaks can cause the water pressure in parts of the house to drop noticeably.
As for how you can fix a leak—the answer to that is "let a professional do it!" And it starts with calling them for leak detection services.
Ways We Find Water Leaks
Leak detection is a process professional plumbers use to pinpoint where leaks are occurring so they can accurately access the leaking pipe with minimal disruption to building materials. The process starts with plumbers using their extensive knowledge of plumbing systems to narrow down the area where the leaks might be happening. After that, the high technology comes into play: listening discs, ground microphones, scanners, and video pipe inspection equipment are among the tools our plumbers use to find where water leaks are located so they can be quickly and properly repaired.
