Water Leak Detection

Water Leak Detection Services in Plano, TX

Here is one of the major dilemmas with residential plumbing: how do you know that your pipes are starting to leak when you can’t see most of them? The pipes are well-disguised behind drywall and under floorboards, or in sections of the house that you rarely visit. This makes catching leaks early difficult. And even when you can discover that you have leaky pipes, how can you find out exactly where the pipes are located so they can be repaired?

Fortunately, there are professional plumbers to take on such problems. Experienced plumbers have training in leak detection services and use top-level equipment to narrow down the location of leaks so they can fix them fast and with minimum disruption to a home. As soon as you have any suspicion of pipe leaks, call Hutchins Plumbing & Air Conditioning and leave the rest of the work to use. You’ll have a hard time finding a better plumbing service in Plano, TX and the surrounding areas.

Tips for Discovering That You Have a Water Leak

You cannot detect the precise location of a leak or repair it unless you have professional training and the right detection devices. However, there are ways to discover that leaking is happening early enough so that you can have plumbers on the job before too much water waste or damage occurs.

The first sign to look for is an increase in your monthly water bills that doesn’t match your current usage. You can always compare your bills with your neighbors’ to see if there are steep discrepancies. Start looking for places in your home where there is discoloration along walls or unusual bumps and rises in the floor. Mold and mildew appearing in unusual places can also tell you there’s a leak. If you think that there’s a leak, you can do a final test: check your water meter, then leave off all appliance and taps for an hour. If the water meter rises, then you have a leak somewhere.

How Leak Detection Works

When you call our plumbers, they will use a combination of their training and the advanced equipment to narrow down the search area until they can pinpoint the location of the leaking pipe. Some of the devices they will put into use include pressure sensors, listening discs, and ground microphones. When the plumbers have found where the leak is hidden, they will use precision tools to reach it. This sometimes involves cutting through drywall and removing boards, but the damage will remain limited to a small area thanks the leak detection procedures. Our plumbers will have the pipe repaired or replaced in a short time and leave your house looking just the way we found it.
