Locating the Source of a Leak
If you see water surfacing in a specific location, you might assume that the water leak originates in that spot. However, this is often not the case. Since water travels along the path of least resistance, water may be running down from a higher location. In other cases, water may leak through a weak area of a ceiling, but the source of the leak could be somewhere else.
For this reason, it is crucial to have one of our leak detection experts help you find the genesis of the leak. We have the right equipment and training to get to the root of the problem. This is important when it comes to providing the most effective solutions. Once we understand where the leak is coming from, we can make the appropriate repairs to stop the leak and prevent further leaks.
Signs of Hidden Leaks
While some leaks can be identified fairly easily, there are several leaks that can remain hidden days or even months before the property owner realizes there is a problem. In many cases, the result is thousands in damage done to a building's structure. To avoid these disastrous consequences, it is profitable to keep an eye (or ear) out for common indications that there may be a leak.
Warning signs that could indicate you have a hidden leak include:
- Mold or mildew
- Peeling paint or wallpaper
- Dark stains on walls and ceilings
- Musty smells
- Damaged flooring
- Warped walls and door frames
- Increased water bills
- Damp or overgrown patches of lawn
- Sounds of running water when taps are off
In addition to these signs, you can also perform a simple test to see if you have a hidden leak.
- First, make sure all of your faucets are turned off.
- Next, make a note of the numbers on your water meter.
- Then wait for two hours.
- Finally, recheck your water meter.
- If the numbers have advanced, it means you have a leak to deal with, and it's time to call our expert plumbers!
