Leak Detection FAQs

What should I expect during a professional leak detection service?

During a professional leak detection service, expect a thorough inspection of your plumbing system using various methods such as visual inspection, listening devices, pressure testing, and possibly thermal imaging. The technician will identify potential leaks and pinpoint their locations. Depending on the findings, repairs may be recommended, and the technician will provide detailed explanations of the issues and proposed solutions. Overall, the service aims to accurately diagnose leaks, prevent water damage, and ensure the integrity of your plumbing system.

What are the different methods of leak detection?

Different methods of leak detection include visual inspection, where plumbers examine visible pipes and fixtures for signs of leaks or damage. Listening devices, such as acoustic sensors, detect sounds of water escaping from pipes underground or within walls. Pressure testing involves pressurizing the plumbing system to identify drops in pressure, indicative of leaks. Thermal imaging uses infrared technology to detect temperature variations caused by water leaks. Additionally, dye testing involves introducing colored dyes into plumbing systems to trace the path of water leaks.

How much does leak detection cost?

The cost of leak detection varies depending on the size of the property, the complexity of the plumbing system, and the methods used. On average, professional leak detection services can range from $100 to $600 or more. Simple leak inspections may be on the lower end of this range, while more extensive leak detection involving specialized equipment or multiple leaks could cost more. It's advisable to obtain quotes from reputable plumbing companies to determine the specific cost for your situation.

What Are The Signs I Might Have A Water Leak?

Is your home trying to tell you something? Here are a few clues that your plumbing may have sprung a leak:

  • Higher Than Expected Water Bills - If your water bill has suddenly taken a leap without any apparent reason, it's time to investigate. Undetected leaks can slowly inflate your water usage, leading to shocking spikes in your monthly bills.
  • Water Stains On Your Ceiling Or Walls - Have you noticed peculiar water stains on your walls or ceilings? These unsightly blemishes are often indicative of water seeping through. Our leak detection experts use advanced technology to trace the source and put an end to the mystery.
  • It Sounds Like Water Is Always Running - The soothing sound of a babbling brook may be lovely, but the constant sound of running water within your home isn't. If you can hear water running when all taps are turned off, chances are a leak is the culprit.
  • Foul Odors Or Mold Growth - Water leaks create the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. If you catch a whiff of musty odors or spot mold growth in unexpected places, it's time to bring in the professionals to pinpoint the source and prevent further mold-related issues.
  • Water Where It Doesn't Belong - We wouldn't expect a puddle in your living room to be part of your usual décor. If you encounter unexplained pools of water indoors, it's a clear sign that there's a leak somewhere, and your home is on the verge of suffering major damage.

If you spot any of the above, you don't want to hesitate - give our experts a call so we can locate and address the leak before anything gets worse.
