Leaks are surprisingly difficult to find inside homes. Although a leak inside a pipe can lead to extensive damage to building material and a large waste of water, because most pipes are hidden behind walls and in floors they are often tricky to locate until they have become a serious problem.
Professional plumbers use a variety of tools and tactics to find the hidden leaks in your home. As soon as you sense a leak issue is occurring in your home (high water bills, increased indoor humidity, discoloration along the walls, floorboard warping), you need to make a call to an experienced company like Resolve Rooter right away. Our skilled plumbers provide expert plumbing services in Media, PA to help you find leaks with precision that will allow us to preform repairs fast and with little disruption to your home.
Professional Leak Detection
- Visual inspection: The professional plumbers’ best leak detection tools are their own experienced eyes. Plumbers know how to trace the plumbing in a home, follow the signs from dampness and spots along the wall, and places where mold and mildew have developed. Before any of the high-tech devices come out, the plumber will already have the search area narrowed down.
- Listening equipment: Sound detection equipment that work similar to medical stethoscopes are one of the most helpful tools plumbers have for find leaks. Discs placed on surfaces that permit the plumbers to hear the smallest noise of water escaping from a pipe through thick concrete slabs make the process of leak detection fast and accurate.
- Video pipe inspection: When it comes to pinpoint precisely where a leak is occurring, using miniaturized cameras on long fiber-optic cables are unsurpassed. The cameras, fed down through drains and other access points, send back clear images to monitors so the plumber can analyze the conditions inside the pipe. Not only does this allow for accurate locating, but it also tells the plumber exactly what kind of leak he or she is dealing with and what methods (sealing, replacement) will do the job. Nothing reduces the amount of time necessary for plumbing repair like effective video pipe inspection.
