No two leaks are the same. While some are obvious, others may not be available for a long time and will also increase your water bill.
So, when you call your Las Vegas planners, they will come armed with technical knowledge and a few commercial tools. Here’s what to expect.
What to Do If You Suspect Leaks
If you do not see any visible signs of water damage but notice an increased water bill, or you see your water meter spinning, you may have a lab leak or other undetectable leak. An easy DIY way to ensure the presence of a leak is to shut off the water inside your house, know the position of your water meter dial, and wait an hour or two (or all night). If the needle in your drive is very low after a few hours, then you may have leaks and you should call a plumber to help find out where you came from.
How Can a Plumber Find a Source of Water Leaks?
If you call a plumber to find the source of the hidden leak, they will start by walking around your home to look for any signs or indications of a potential leak. This could include monitoring areas, under sinks, irrigation systems, and pool systems to control these resources. Your plumber will check the water meter to get an idea of the water used.
Water Leak Detection Tool
After disconnecting local and fixture leaks, your plumber will need to check for ground leaks or leaks hidden in walls. The most effective tool for detecting these types of water leaks is professional sound detection equipment. Using headphones and a microphone, a highly skilled technician will be able to listen to the sound of water running underground as it travels through pipes. In addition, they can also use the pipeline hubs in the visible parts of the pipeline to transmit radar signal over the pipelines. This process is known as “piping charging.” When a leak is found, an experienced plumber will explain the best ways to repair and prevent any water damage in your home.
