Leak Detection Service
One of the scariest things a homeowner can encounter is a leak in their plumbing. Most of the time, leaks go unnoticed and escalate to the point of severe damage. In many cases, the first sign of a leak that a homeowner will notice is their water bill. If it’s unusually high and you know it’s not because the rates went up, or because your family hasn’t been using more water than normal, then chances are you have a leak.
However, waiting until your water bill comes in is not always the best idea. The longer the leak goes unattended to, the worse the damage an
d the bill becomes. So, in order to avoid the headache of water damage in your home, how else will you know you have a leak?
Signs You Have a Water Leak
The moment you realize one or more of the above is something you are experiencing in your home, it’s time to call in a T. Webber Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning professional as soon as possible.
- You have mildew or excessive moisture forming under your carpets
- You see cracks in your walls or floors
- You hear running water, even though there are no fixtures turned on
- You notice that there are hot spots on the floors. A good way to help you find this is to pay attention to where your pets lay. They like the warmth, so if they are consistently nestling into one spot, that’s a good indication.
Because many leaks are located underground, within the walls, or beneath the foundation, it makes it hard to locate them. And, if leak detection is not done properly, it can be damaging to your home.
But, don’t worry about that. At T. Webber, we use top-of-the-line leak detection equipment to pinpoint the exact location of your leak with little to no destruction.
T. Webber’s Leak Detection Methods
Once we find the leak, we will repair it on the spot and get your home’s plumbing back to running like normal. And, trust us, we will find your leak. Here’s how:
- Video camera inspection: This is our most preferred method of detection because of it’s simplicity. We send a fiber-optic cable down your pipeline so we can get a clear picture of exactly what’s going on. We’ll find the source of your leak, and determine what the best course of action for repair would be.
- Smoke detection: Though typically used as a last resort, when we perform a smoke detection, we send harmless smoke into your pipeline and look to see where it escapes.
Before you worry about how much damage these leak detection methods will do to your home, you have to know that we always take the non-invasive approach first. In fact, many times we won’t even need to dig or rip open any walls.
