Leak Detection Services
Knight Plumbing offers non-intrusive, quick, and reliable leak detection services in the Treasure Valley. With our insight and guidance, your leaks won’t go undetected. It is important to know the signs of a leak, so it does not continue to damage your property.
Signs You May Have A Leak
- Musty smell
- Wet spots
- Foundation cracks
- High water bill
- Water damage
You may not always be able to see or hear leaks, so it’s important to know the signs to prevent further damage. Knight Plumbing experts are equipped with high-tech leak location technology and equipment, and will run a pressure test which is more sensitive than a meter reading. With this test, we can measure the small drops in pressure as water escapes. If your pressure is lower than it’s supposed to be, then further investigation to pinpoint the leak will need to be done. Pressure testing can also aid in finding if there is any buildup that is causing your low water pressure.
Electronic Leak Detection
For more specific leak location detection, our experts use an electronic leak detector to pinpoint exactly where your leak is located. We use high-end technology to listen for frequencies that are associated with leaking water or gas. The special microphone on the detection device can then quantify the sound level and translate it down in frequency. The area where it is loudest will be the spot where your leak is located. This information is then passed onto the plumber to determine if it is a cracked pipe, loose gasket, or a leak. Instead of ripping open walls in hopes of finding something, our experts use this non-intrusive method so that no damage is brought to your home.
Sometimes leaks are quieter in plastic piping than in metal, and water likes to escape out of your pipes in the quickest way possible, which is not always where your leak is. We also do not expect every property owner to have an accurate record of supply pipe routes and any alterations that have been made. Because of this, in some cases, it may be necessary to carry out excavation work to pinpoint the leak. With our advanced technology, we won’t be digging up your whole yard. Our goal is to target the cause of your leak, and then work on the best solution for you.
Unchecked Leak Risks
You can save money in the long run by having your local Idaho plumber provide leak detection services. Leaving a leak alone runs the risk of multiple destructive events such as foundation cracks, sinkholes, black mold, water contamination, or fire hazards.
These problems don’t stop at your home, they can move on to cause health risks and financial repercussions. Don’t be fooled by a small increase in water use, be sure to have one of our expert plumbers double-check for you. Not only will our services help you sleep at night, but you will also rest easy knowing we did the work right.
