Ensuring your complex plumbing system is working correctly with our early plumbing leak detection service is just one of the ways we can save you time and money.
The average family uses more than 300 gallons of water per day and 10% of homes have plumbing leaks that waste 90 gallons or more. Can you imagine what this does to your water bill? With plumbing leak detection, you can stop wasting money and water!
Water Leak Detection Services
Early detection is key when dealing with any kind of home issue, especially with water leaks in your plumbing system. A leaky faucet dripping at the rate of one drip per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons of water per year. This can potentially add hundreds to your water bill. While we are all familiar with an irritating dripping faucet, not all leaks are as obvious. Often, leaks occur in plumbing lines under the foundation or other hidden areas of your home. Leaks like these can cause some serious water damage, as well as structural damage to your home! Repairs like these can be very costly for a homeowner, so it’s important to take action as soon as you suspect there may be a problem.
Why You Need To Fix All Leaks Immediately
The last thing any homeowner wants to worry about is leaking plumbing, but it’s important to fix any and all leaks you discover as quickly as possible. While plumbing services may seem like a costly fix, repairing the damage caused by an ongoing plumbing leak will cost a lot more.
Your home has a complex plumbing system that manages more than 300 gallons of water a day! While a simple leaky faucet may seem like a slight annoyance, some leaks are bigger and unseen. They can cause floor damage, wall damage, and mold issues, to name a few. All of these repairs are very costly, time-consuming, and can completely take over your day-to-day life. Our technicians are trained and will identify any leaks in your plumbing and help to come up with solutions.
Water Leak Prevention
The best way to prevent plumbing leaks are:
- Regularly perform routine maintenance on all of your appliances. When all your appliances are in good working order, you’re much less likely to have leaks.
- Keep an eye on your water bill; it tells you everything you need to know about your water usage. A spike in your monthly water usage — i.e. a higher water bill — is a red flag that you may have a plumbing leak!
How to Detect Plumbing Leaks
Checking your water meter is the best way to confirm that there is a leak in your plumbing. First, you want to confirm that no water is being used anywhere on your property. Second, locate your water meter and see if the leak indicator shows any movement. If you’re unsure where your meter location is, you can call your local water department. The leak indicator may look slightly different on different models of water meters, but it typically looks like a small triangular-shaped dial or a small wheel that rotates when water is flowing. If you notice movement, you likely have a leak. You can also wait a few hours and take another meter reading. If the numbers on the dial have moved and you haven’t used any water, then you definitely have a leak.
