Water leaks are a bane to any property. It wastes water and financial resources, causes property damage, and could even give way to mold and mildew growth. Property owners must detect and repair leaks right away to prevent them from causing more issues.
Modern Technology Leak Detection System
There are several types of modern leak detection systems that are non-invasive. Below are some of these leak detection systems offered by bo9th residential and commercial plumbing companies:
Digital water leak detection service
This is one of the most effective leak detection procedures available. Using highly advanced tools, the equipment used here amplifies the sounds associated with leaks such that it effectively isolates the location of the breakage or leak.
Once the exact spot is located, the plumber can immediately get down to repairing the leakage without having to dig or do anything invasive. This saves time, effort, and money, and prevents the destruction of any part of the property.
Slab Leak Detection Service
Slab leaks are discovered using a camera piping inspection, plus a combination of static pressure testing and the usual line inspection. This procedure is highly effective in detecting a plumbing problem below the foundation of a property. Homeowners should never shrug off slab leaks as they can undermine the foundation of a home or any commercial establishment.
Signs of a Water Leak
Several signs point to a water leak. While leaky faucets, showers, toilets, and visible piping are easy to spot, leaks that run underground, behind the walls, among other places not visible to the naked eye tend to be the most destructive.
Here are the signs of a water leak in any property:
- A sudden surge in water consumption and billing. When the bills suddenly sky-rocket for no apparent reason, then it is likely due to an unseen water leak. Water can leak underground, and behind the walls, and so the owners or the occupants in the property may not have seen the actual leakage. But the billing and consumption rate says it all.
