Spot the Signs of a Leak

In most cases, the homeowner in question needs to first determine that something is wrong. General leak detection means looking for any signs of something out of the ordinary with your pipes. This can include (but is not limited to) the following.

  • Soft spots in the walls or ceiling, created by leaking water.
  • Puddles forming in strange locations for no apparent reason.
  • Sounds of drips or running water where no such sound should be made.
  • Water bills that are higher than they should be, especially if you haven’t used more water than normal.
  • Water pressure from a given faucet or fixture that is lower than you expect.

When you spot these signs, turn the water off to the affected are and call in our team: we serve the whole Buffalo, NY area.

We Use Modern Leak Detection Tools

Fixing a leak starts with leak detection, and it needs to be accurate to ensure that the repairs are conducted efficiently. That means doing more than simply spotting a leak. It means determining not only its location but its cause. In the past, plumbers had to rely on a lot of educated guesswork, but these days, we have access to far more effective tools.

Our team comes equipped with the very latest leak detection tools, which means we can get to the root of the problem quickly and effectively. That cuts down on the time required for repairs, as well as the cost in many cases, so the work can begin more swiftly.

What Kinds of Tools?

Professional plumbers can take advantage of more sensitive detection tools such as sonic detectors to pinpoint the location of a leak. Miniature video cameras can provide an unprecedented look inside the pipes to determine the source and extent of the leak, while water pressure detectors can determine if there are other leaks within the system.

All of which requires both formal training and a good deal of experience to use properly. Leak detection is a vital part of any leak repair operation, and with it, your plumbing can ensure that the problem is addressed the right way the first time.
