Since most water leaks are hidden, they can be difficult to find. Here are some of the signs that indicate you may need to call a leak detection specialist:
Finding a leak is a high priority, but it’s also important to avoid damaging your property or creating additional problems. The leak detection process starts with an inspection to identify obvious signs of water leakage. If the leak location is self-evident, we’ll repair or replace the leaking pipe, fixture or connector by applying a patch or tightening a joint.
In some instances locating a leak is more challenging. Your home’s sewer lines and water piping system run through many areas inside of the building, including the walls, attic and beneath the floors. Our technicians use advanced diagnostic equipment to isolate the exact location of the leak.
Pressure testing is a critical tool that helps us determine if your water pressure is balanced. Using this information, we’ll find out if the leak is on the cold or hot water side of the system. We’ll also use moisture probes and sensors placed in a variety of locations to identify areas where unexplained moisture or standing water is accumulating. Obscure or awkwardly positioned leaks may require the use of a thermal laser, fiber optic borescope or infrared camera.
After our technicians have identified the source of the leak, they’ll create a plan and provide you with an estimate. Whether it’s a simple leak repair or a job that requires extensive repiping, our skilled plumbers will restore your sewer and water delivery systems to full functionality. At HRI Plumbing, no job is considered finished until you’re 100-percent satisfied.
