When you have leaky pipes, you usually notice it in one of three ways; you see it, hear it, or feel it in your wallet. The problem may be connected to a fixture or deeper down the line. Whatever you do, don’t ignore a suspected leak.
Prompt leak detection is one of the most important plumbing repairs you can do. Addressing it early can prevent many problems: rotten building materials, insect damage, mold, and damage to the foundation.
If you have noticed staining in your walls or on the ceiling, a leaking pipe might to blame. It can ruin insulation, plaster, drywall and flooring if left for even a short period of time. Moisture also attracts mold and mildew, which can find their way into your ventilation.
Many plumbing problems are caused by external leaks. Toilets and sink drains that back up may mean that there is a break in a line that runs under your yard. A large tree root can sense vapor in buried lines and actually crack them open. You might also notice soil that always seems soggy or a depression in the ground.
Whether it is your home or your business, call our plumbing services for state of the art leak detection techniques and customer service that has earned the highest honors on Angie’s List.
Causes of Water Leaks
Pipes can leak for a number of reasons:
Your pipes can simply be old. If they are galvanized steel or copper, they can be damaged by water chemistry. Deterioration and rust are common problems in older pipes. PVC can crack from large tree roots and shifting soil. Rigid pipes can be hammered around when water flow starts and stops. If there is concrete or a large rock next to it, this can eventually crack it.
Our leak detection service also finds cases of pipes that are improperly installed. Seals and solders might have been done improperly. Pipes might be too small, leading to clogs and problems related to high water pressure.
Leak detection involves taking a look at the fixture or appliance and working backward through the pipes. With our snake-mounted video cameras, we can peer behind walls, under concrete slabs and under the ground. This will tell us where to work, without having to do any heavy excavation. Then, we’ll use the right method to fix it.
Sometimes the problem is solved by a simple patch or solder. Other times, it might require pipe replacement. Whatever it takes to stop leaks, we’re on the job. We’re Cincinnati plumbers, we're family owned and operated and have been part of the community for more than 30 years.
