The Value of Professional Water Leak Detection
The longer you wait, the worse it’s going to be. That sentiment is true in many areas of life, and it’s especially true when you’re talking about a water leak. Professional leak detection service uses cameras and strategies that will pinpoint the source of the leak, so it can be repaired and the damage can stop. Allowing a professional to get to work and find the leak will save you time and money, which is all any homeowner really wants when there is a plumbing situation.
Ticking Time Bombs
A slow water leak inside your house is causing damage all day, every day until you do something about it. If the leak is hidden under a floor or behind a wall, it will carry on until you see the outward signs, but by that time there could be thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to your home. If you ever see signs of moisture or condensation where there should be none, then you might have a water leak that needs attention. It’s important to keep in mind that the day you notice a sign of a leak probably isn’t the day the leak started. It may have started weeks ago, so take action and get the situation under control quickly.
How Can We Locate Your Leak?
Thanks to ever-improving technology, our team has a range of methods that we can use to detect and repair water line leaks in your home or around your property. Some of these water leak locators include:
- Video Camera Inspection: This is the most successful method of leak detection, using a small video camera attached to the end of a long, flexible cable that is inserted into the pipe to find the location of the leak.
- Audio Detection (Listening Disks): Listening disks and deck plates are used to locate leaks through cabinetry, walls, or floors. The plates amplify the sound of the leak into a pair of headphones worn by your technician, helping them locate where the sound is coming from.
- Ground or Probe Sensors: This method is used to detect leaks that are occurring underground in your yard. A ground sensor is used on hard surfaces like concrete or tile, while probe sensors are used on soft surfaces like soil or grass.
