How Leak Detection Works

When you find water leaking into your kitchen or pooling on your basement floor, you might panic at first due to the imminent threat water poses to your home. Fortunately, your local plumber’s leak detection services can help solve your plumbing woes.

The Leak Detection Process

Leak detection is a process plumbers use to detect leaks in pipelines or other pressurized structures. Leaks can be a result of corrosion, poor workmanship, or accidents.

Visual Inspection

Puddles, leaks, and mold are some of the most common signs that indicate a leak. If you notice leakage signs, your plumber will come out and visually inspect your site to determine the cause and location.

Video or Audio Inspection

If a visual inspection doesn’t yield results, your plumber might use a camera to inspect the pipe’s interior. In addition, listening devices will also help plumbers hear where a leak is originating.

Leak Repair

After your plumber locates the leak, it’ll be time to repair it. The issue could be as simple as a rotted O-ring or as complex as a broken main. Either way, you want trusted plumbers on the job to set your house to rights.
