Water Leak Detection and How to Find the Right Company for the Job

Your house is a system of pipes and wiring that is concealed behind the walls, below the floor and over the ceiling. Those pipes hold both fresh water and wastewater, and if they crack open somewhere on your property, you’ll end up requiring some key repairs. If you have this problem, make sure to call a water leak detection and repair expert.

Spotting Leaks

These are some of the most usual indications of a water leak:

Water sound – If there are no open faucets in your home but you can hear the sound of flowing or dripping water, there’s a good chance of a leak.

Faucet dripping – One of the most palpable signs of a leak is when you actually watch it happen. A leaky faucet can cause a huge waste of water over an entire year.

Unexplained wetness in floor, ceiling or wall – A leaking water pipe may be the cause.

Significant increase in water bill – If your bill has gone up without any significant increase in water usage, this may be due to loss of unused water.

Abnormally low water pressure – Low water pressure in shower heads or faucets is another usual indication of a water leak.

Undetected Leak Scenario

Besides from having a higher water bill, water leaks can cause big aesthetic and structural damage, depending on their specific location.

Internal damage – If the leak occurs behind a wall or on the floor, you will have to replace the damaged flooring or drywall, which can get rather expensive.

External and foundation damage – A leak occurring outside your home is likely to cause damage to your surrounding landscape. If the leak occurs very close to the house itself, expect significant issues with your home’s foundation.

Searching for a Good Water Leak Detection Company

Water leak detection services are obviously not all created equal, and spotting the right one may not be so easy. First off, pick a leak detection service that has been there for some time. This usually indicates that they have perfected their craft and care about their reputation. This will also help you avoid fly-by-night companies that don’t guarantee their work.

If you actually have a leak, the last thing you want is expensive digging and repair that is based on guesswork. Make sure you choose a company uses modern equipment like precision electronic devices, cameras, advanced thermal imaging and video inspection equipment. This shows that they are serious about providing the best to their clients. No jackhammers or bulldozers!You don’t want them to use jackhammers or bulldozers! Jackhammers and bulldozers should be out of the picture unless completely necessary.
