Leak Detection That Works
Some companies can detect a leak, but along the way may cause damage to your home or create worse problems that will then need to be fixed later. You can rest assured that our highly trained plumbers will not only find your leaks quickly and efficiently, but repair them with the skill and expertise that the job demands. Leak detection starts with state of the art technology that minimizes invasiveness, and our plumbers know how to use this equipment to its fullest potential.
Symptoms of a Leak
Some plumbing leaks are simple enough to pinpoint—water flowing from a place that it shouldn’t, drips coming from your ceiling, or pools forming in your flower beds are all signs of unwanted leaks. Other signs of a leak can include:
Water meter changes: If the water meter suddenly starts reading higher and you do not have house guests or additional family members staying with you, it is a sure sign that water is leaking somewhere in your home. Even if your water bill is not higher, check the meter to ensure that your usage is not skyrocketing.
Spongy floors: If the floor becomes soft, spongy, or oddly-colored without any reason, it may be because of a leak somewhere nearby. Check for drips from the ceiling or possibly water seeping up from below the floor.
Mildew smell: Water leaks will frequently create an unpleasant, foul odor that permeates your home. It may smell like mildew or rotting wood or plant matter, depending on where the leak originates.
Cracks in the foundation or ground shifts: Cracks in the concrete foundation of your home or uneven shifts in the earth around your home are sure signs that excess moisture is building up in the area. Check for suspiciously lush vegetation as well in the area.
Spotting water leaks can be tricky, but in short order, these symptoms will start to appear. When you suspect that there is a water leak, it is already time to call a professional.
Detecting and Stopping Your Leaks
Leak detection starts with a general inspection. The trained plumbers at Basnett Plumbing, Heating & AC will assess your home and check for any obvious signs of water leakage. If any symptoms are spotted, we can track the issue back to the source and find the pipe, fixture, or connection that is creating the leak. Some leaks are simple to fix—requiring a patch on a pipe or the tightening of a joint. However, others may require more extensive repairs. Only licensed, experienced plumbers can be trusted with such a job.
