What Are Common Symptoms of a Water Leak?
Not all water leaks are easy to detect, and the longer they’re left unchecked, the more damage they can do in your home. Knowing what to look for is the best way to detect water line leaks early. Some common symptoms include:
- Excess Water: If there’s an excessive amount of water in the street near your house or your yard has become a virtual sponge, the odds are - there’s a leak.
- Puddles: If you start seeing puddles inside your house, whether around appliances or next to doors or windows, give us a call.
- Stained or Damp Drywall: Water staining indicates a leak that has damaged the ceiling or floor below it.
- Unusually High Water Bills: If you notice a substantial increase in your water bill, that is a good indicator that a leak has developed somewhere in the line.
An easy tip for your home is to have a water bill that you can check against to see if there’s an upward trend in water usage. Leaks need to be addressed early, as they can lead to dangerous mold and mildew, which thrives in warm, damp conditions.
What is Leak Detection & How Does it Work?
Leak detection is the process of locating and identifying a plumbing leak or damage to the water main. There are a wide variety of techniques used to detect leaks depending on the individual situation including SONAR, underground imagery, X-rays, cameras, and other specialized equipment.
At G.F. Bowman, Inc. we are your water main repair and replacement experts. Using the best method for your home, we’ll accurately locate any leak issues, and provide you with a long-term solution. While a repair can often solve smaller leaks, a main water line replacement may be needed if the damage is extensive enough or your plumbing is on the older side.
If your home is consistently struggling with leaks and clogs, you may benefit from repiping services.
