Water Alarms and Leak Detection
Leaking PipesLeaking pipes are a common problem in homes and can cause a lot of damage. Just a little drip can add up significantly on your water bill and damage floors, walls and furniture.
What are the signs you have a hidden water leak?Water leaks aren’t always easy to detect, but they do provide some obvious signs. To avoid further damage and costly repairs to you home, call Grand Lake Plumbing & Heating if you experience any of these water leak signs:
- Your water bill increased unexpectedly
- The water meter dial is moving even though all water is turned off
- Damp or spongy floors
- Warping on your ceiling or floor
- Mold or mildew developing in your home
- You hear water running between the walls
How Can Grand Lake Plumbing Help?There are several ways professionals detect and treat difficult to access leaks. One of the safest and most popular ways of detecting a leak is through infrared technology. Another option is to use electronic amplification and electromagnetic pipeline locators. These are also non-destructive detection techniques that don’t require excavation or cause harm to your pipes and your property.
To stop a small leak from turning into a big one, take a look at your pipes periodically to check for rust or white lime deposits that may indicate a leak is starting. If you see rust or lime, you may have an issue. Check around the pipe to see if there is any moisture. If you find moisture, act fast by calling Grand Lake Plumbing & Heating. A leak can turn in to a break in seconds!
