How Can Water or Sewer Leakage be Detected?
Without seeing water shooting out of a burst pipe, it can be difficult to determine the location of the leak, especially when your water lines or sewer lines are underground and beneath a hard surface such as concrete or pavers. If left untreated, the leak can cause significant property damage to your home or office.
Leaks coming out of pipes or water lines not only causes a unique sound (similar to a hiss) but also a vibration of the pipe. The vibration can be detected in both longitudinal and latitudinal directions. The longitudinal vibrations are used to determine the approximate area of the leak. Once the approximate area is determined, the latitudinal vibrations are used to pin-point the exact location of the leak.
Signs You May Have a Water Line Leak and Need a Leak Detection Service:
You hear a strange noise coming from your walls or floor
Your water bills have been increasing, even though you're using the same amount of water as usual
Your water meter flood readings usage when you're not running water
You see water pooling in areas where it doesn't usually accumulate
Your home's foundation seems to be shifting or cracking
There's a sudden decrease in water pressure when you turn on your taps
You find evidence of moisture or mold in hidden areas such as the attic or basement
Did You Know?
A crack in your irrigation pipe of 1/32nd inch, the width of a dime, can waste about 6,300 gallons of water per month.
10% of homes have leaks that waste more than 90 gallons of water per day.
Where Can Leaks be Detected?
Using pin-point precision and accuracy, Hoffman Plumbing leak detection service will save you time, money, and reduce repair costs by knowing EXACTLY where the water leak is located. We are able to do this by using state of the art listening equipment and video camera inspection tools that help us locate water leaks under multiple surfaces quickly, easily and without damage.
Under Paved Surfaces
Our leak detector team uses equipment to locate leaks under asphalt, concrete, brick, and pavers.
We can also find a water leak under unpaved surfaces, such as gravel, soil, and grass.
Leak Detection Within Structures
We can also detect leaks within structures, such as behind walls, under floors, and in ceilings. Leaks within walls and ceilings can cause serious water damage, as they can create weak spots. In addition, leaks can also cause mold and mildew to form, which can be harmful to your health.
Houses built on a slab are especially susceptible to leaks because the pipes are often embedded in the concrete floor. A slab leak can occur in the joints where the pipes connect, or in the pipes themselves.
Homes and Offices with Basements: Our plumbers can also detect a slab leak in homes, commercial property offices that have basements.
What Causes a Water Leak?
Uncovering the cause of a water leak can be multifaceted and complex. Here are some issues that may require a leak detection service:
• Faulty plumbing - Poorly installed or aging pipes or faucets can lead to water leakage.
• Broken pipes - Pipes that are exposed to freezing temperatures, vibration, and high levels of pressure can break, causing water to leak.
• Corrosion - Over time, pipes can corrode due to age or the presence of debris or minerals.
• Natural disasters - Flooding, earthquakes, and other natural disasters can cause extensive damage to plumbing systems, resulting in water leakage.
• Clogs and blockages caused by debris, tree roots, and sediment matter can block the flow of water, leading to leaky pipes.
