Water Leak Detection Services in Orange County
Leaks in your plumbing don’t always announce themselves. By the time you realize that you have a leak, you may have lost a lot of money to your water bill, and incurred significant repair costs. Then comes the headache of finding the leak. Slab leaks, pinhole leaks, or cracked pipes can often be located in a spot that is impossible to access without cutting into a floor or wall. Slab leaks in particular are problematic, because they exist in the foundation of your home or office. (For more information on slab leaks, read our page on slab leaks, found here.)
Leaks can be caused by all kinds of things: poor construction or maintenance, corrosion, or ground movement are just a few. Aside from moisture in a floor, wall, or ceiling, some indicators of a leak are: running water sounds, noisy pipes, a hot floor, or your water meter moving when no one is using water. A small leak can lose dozens of gallons of water per hour, and have a devastating impact on your water bill. Given that California is currently enduring an unprecedented drought, such water loss is not kind to the environment either.
The impact from a hidden leak can vary widely, depending on the location of the leak, its size, and how much time has elapsed before its repair. Even if it is caught quickly, a hidden leak can cause extensive property damage, and can produce a lot of moisture, which must be dried up. Moisture can damage drywall, cause wood to rot, and ruin floors, paint, or wallpaper. Leaking water can compromise your building’s electrical system and even start a fire. If the breach occurs in a sewer line, leaked sewage can cause bacteria and insect infestation, and other health hazards.
Also, moisture can result in mold if not addressed quickly. Mold is highly toxic, and something that you want to avoid at all costs. One species of black mold is deadly to humans, and is impossible to remove once it works into a structure. If the problem is not addressed quickly, the health department will condemn the building for the protection of any potential residents or employees.
In any case, disinfection is a service you should expect of any potential plumbing professional. If you call an amateur, they may know how to fix the problem, but they may not know how to remove bacteria and mold completely. Failing to do so would be a disaster; mold grows quietly in the dark, and doesn’t leave many clues of its existence, particularly if you’re not looking for it.
Choose Knights Plumbing for Your Leak Detection & Repair
Detecting hidden leaks can be nearly impossible for an untrained homeowner. Many leaks exist in places that have no access point, and thus cannot be seen. Slab leaks in particular are buried underneath concrete. Also consider that water does not stay in one place; it seeps to the lowest point that it can. Finding water does not mean that you have found the location of a leak. Even if you can locate a leak in a difficult location, providing a proper repair is another matter entirely.
