When it comes to leak detection, you may be wondering what to do or where to go. You may think you have a leak, but that doesn’t mean you know where it is coming from or how to find it. Often, you need the help of a professional plumber. 24H Plumbing Pros is here to help you. We offer a variety of methods to find leaks in your slab foundation and pipeline.
Of course, we understand how upsetting this time is for you. You need someone there promptly, and you can call us regardless of the time because we are open 24/7.
There are two primary methods of leak detection, which include thermal and acoustic.
We have both devices available to help determine where the leak is, and we can decide which method is best when we arrive on-site and assess the situation.
Generally, an acoustic device finds the leak by differentiating the sound of a leak from the normal water flow. With our tools, the technology measures the strength of the pipeline wall and uses sound waves to do so.
Thermal imaging is another way to test for leaks. It’s often used on a concrete slab. These devices don’t see water, but they can help you visualize the temperature change where water is located. It isn’t easy to use either method to find leaks, but our team has the skills and experience needed to help you, so call us today.
Slab Leak Detection and Repair
Slab leak detection requires an experienced plumber. It is a careful and thorough process that uses modern tools to find the leak. Our expert technicians offer these services and can determine where the leak is with as little destruction to the property as possible.
Slab leaks can occur when the pipes in the sewer and water lines beneath the house break, burst, or crack. The leak isn’t in the slab; it’s in the pipeline beneath it. Since it’s underground, the source isn’t visible to the eye. Instead, we have to check several signs that suggest there could be a leak and then use special equipment to find out where it is. These symptoms can include:
- Mildew and moisture under the flooring and carpet
- Sound of running water when all water sources are shut off
- Spinning water meters when there’s no water running in or outside the house
- Higher-than-normal water bills
- Cracks in the flooring or walls
- Recent bug problems because of the excess moisture
- The smell of sewage indicating a break in the drain or sewer line
24H Plumbing Pros can provide full leak detection services to the concrete slabs of your home. Once we find the source of the leak, we can repair it promptly and effectively. If you think that you might have a leak in the slabs, call us today for a thorough inspection. Don’t forget to ask about our slab leak repair options.
Water Leak Repair
When you think you may have a water leak somewhere in the home, it is important to call a professional. We have the right tools for the job. Most water leaks aren’t obvious or noticeable at first. Therefore, they can go undetected for many years. For example, the water supply line to your shower, toilet, sinks, and bathtub are often located underground, under the floor, or behind walls. Slow leaks in such hidden areas can cause a lot of damage before you realize there is a problem. Leak detection requires the help of a professional plumber with the right tools and detection equipment.
We have the right options to help with finding leaks. Often, this includes acoustic and thermal equipment. They are sensitive and highly accurate. Plus, they have a sensor on them, which helps us determine where the leak is. Once we have done that, we can choose the best course of action to repair it.
