Can a Plumber Detect a Water Leak?
It is a good question that requires some serious thinking before giving your plumber a call. First off, I must say that not all leak detection companies are the same. Some hire people with extensive training in leak detection systems. Other companies only have a plumber on staff that is pretty much useless when it comes to detecting leaks.
A leak detection company will arrive on site with their equipment and perform an inspection of the home. They may even recommend an appropriate course of action. Sometimes this involves nothing more than changing a couple of steps or moving a few things around. But oftentimes there are more to it than that. Some leak detection services use robotic technology or high-tech cameras to locate any potential leak areas.
The problem with some water leaks is that you might not even be aware they exist until they start to leak. That’s why it’s important to have a leak detection service come out on site to evaluate the leak and make sure it’s not being caused by a problem that can be resolved on your own. The sooner the leak is addressed the less chance of it becoming a bigger problem.
When it comes to addressing leaks in residential homes, homeowners have a lot of important decisions to make. Water leak detection is one of them. It’s a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly, but one that must be made if the health and safety of your family are at risk. Take the time to learn all that there is to know about leak detection and how a leak detection company can help.
Advantages of Leak Detection
Homeowners used to dread the thought of having a plumber tear down walls and dig up yards just to find one small leak. Using audio detection and pipe tracing, our technicians avoid this disruptive, time-consuming, and expensive process and make sure your leaks don’t go unchecked. The process is precise, non-destructive, and cost-saving.
Without leak repair, mold or mildew can grow in a moist environment and cause even more damage. It can also make the air in your home unhealthy. Cracked wall paint and visible water stains that will only continue to spread are other damage risks as well.
