There are several methods our experienced plumbers use to find small leaks before they cause greater trouble. Let us help you get to the bottom of your leak problems–contact our team for professional detection in Virginia Beach and surrounding areas.
What’s Causing Your Water Leak?
There are several factors that can cause a leak in your plumbing. Clogged drains and toilets are at the top of the list. Clogged drainage pipes from sinks, toilets, showers, and washing machines are common areas for leaking. This is caused by food, hair, toilet paper, grease, and even toys building up. Your fixtures can also become sluggish, eventually leaking or overflowing.
Shifting and deteriorating pipes are harder to detect. Pipes will deteriorate and rust with age, creating cracks and leaks. The natural shifting of the ground underneath your home will also affect your pipes. Having a professional leak detection service performed regularly will help solve any issues that could result from such situations.
How Can You Avoid Leaks in the Future?
You won’t always notice a leak until it becomes a major problem. The best way to prevent costly repairs is to have our team conduct a routine leak detection service. Modern techniques allow us to find the smallest of leaks and fix them before more serious issues occur. This can be done without damaging your home or property. Between regular inspections, call us immediately if you find floors with warm spots, low water pressure, high water bills, or damp ceilings, walls, or cabinets.
What are Professional Leak Detection Techniques?
There are several leak detection methods we use to find hidden problems within your home. The methods we use can be done without interrupting the structure of your home.
There is no need to open up walls, ceilings, or floors with the following techniques:
- Video pipeline testing - uses closed circuit cameras. The images on the monitor tell our plumbers exactly where the leaks and cracks are, without having to do any excavating.
- Hydrostatic testing - relies on pressure to help make the leaks more visible, pinpointing their exact location
- Electronic leak detection - this allows our professionals to listen through surfaces for the sound of water leaks along the pipes.
Once we find even the smallest of leaks, we can make the needed repairs in a timely and cost effective manner. Call us at (757) 347-8549 to schedule an immediate appointment.
