Water Leak Detection in Atlanta, GA by Quick Action Plumbers
After clogged drains, the plumbing problem that people often think of first is water leaking from pipes. But often, people imagine water gushing from an exposed pipe, where they can clearly see the leak and know they need to shut off the water main and immediately call for professional repairs. But this pipe leak scenario is actually rare. Usually, the offending pipe is not located in a spot where it can be seen easily, and repairing it requires special knowledge and tools.

Our plumbers will arrive in vans stocked with the best in leak detection technology, and then they’ll locate the leaky pipe quickly so they can have it fixed before it causes more damage or water waste.

Why Do I Need Leak Detection in the First Place?
The reason you must rely on professionals for leak detection is that most of the plumbing in your home is hidden behind drywall and under floorboards. This is primarily for aesthetic reasons, as well as safety: you don’t want ugly piping all over the walls and floors. But this does make it difficult to tell when a small leak starts along a pipe because of pitting corrosion or a weak joint. Since even small leaks are potentially disastrous for a home (it only takes a small pool of standing water to chew right through drywall) you must have professionals use special tools to find the leaking pipes.
Because you can’t see the leaking pipe itself, you must instead pay attention to smaller signs of their presence. Look for damp spots of discoloration on the walls, warped areas in the floorboards, the appearance of mold and mildew, and unexplained increases in the water bills. Call for plumbers to look into any of these issues.
How Professionals Find Water Leaks
Skilled plumbers have a number of resources they use to find disguised leaks. First among them is knowledge: plumbing professionals can often narrow down the area of a leak based on visual evidence. But they also used advanced equipment to zero in on the exact location of a leaking pipe. Many of these devices are based on sound; listening discs and ground microphones permit a plumber to hear the escape of water from a pipe through thick layers of construction material. Pressure and temperature scanners are helpful as well. Plumbers worth hiring will use all the tools available to them.
