Have you ever spent hours trying to locate a leak with no luck? Although you can use your water meter to detect leaks, this won’t tell you exactly where in your plumbing system the leak, block, or damage is located. However, at High Tech Plumbing, the secret to locating these plumbing issues is simple. It’s even in our name— “High Tech.” We will use the latest technology to locate leaks and implement the latest plumbing techniques to get the issue fixed quickly and with no hassle to you.
One of the most useful tools we use is a specially-designed video camera that allows us to inspect every part of your sewer lines. You could spend hours trying to locate a leak the old-fashioned way. However, even once you do locate it, you won’t know what caused it, such as corroded pipes, root intrusion, or whether the drain is being obstructed by something else like a rock. With our video inspections, there’s no guesswork, we get straight to the issue and start solving it immediately.
If you’re experiencing leaks in your plumbing system, it could be a sign that there is a bigger issue at hand. If it’s a simple plumbing fixture leak, you won’t need advanced video technology to spot the issue. However, if your leak is occurring somewhere underground or in the walls you won’t be able to locate it and may not even be aware that there’s a leak. It’s important that you have your water line inspected regularly so that there are no doubts about the condition of your pipes, and if they’re in a poor condition, you can have them replaced before a leak occurs. Although leaks are more common in old plumbing systems, they can still occur in new systems as well.
If you leave a leak unfixed, you’re not only wasting money on the extra water usage, but you could be doing serious damage to your property. Leaks can cause water damage and if they’re in warm area, will result in mold or mildew growth. If this happens, you’ll need to call a mold remediation company, resulting in more costs for you. Living with mold in your home is a serious health risk and reduce your home’s overall air quality. Leaks may also result in physical damage to your home that could result in hundreds of dollars in renovation costs. Leak issues never fix themselves and usually get worse over time. It’s better to contact a plumber sooner rather than later to get the issue fixed.
