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 see or hear some leaks but knowing the signs can prevent further damage. Knight Plumbing experts are equipped with high tech leak location technology and equipment, so you aren’t left with an ongoing problem. Knight Plumbing will run a pressure test which is more sensitive than 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. This is a great initial test to conduct so we can find out if you have a leak in the first place.
Electronic Leak Detection
For more specific leak location detection, we use an electronic leak detector. Using this method, we can pinpoint exactly where your leak is located. Instead of old fashioned stethoscopes, we use high-end technology for a quick and reliable method of leak detection. Sometimes a leak can go unheard, but this device is able 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 and hoping to find something, our experts use this non-intrusive method so that no damage is brought to your home.
In the event that a leak’s noise cannot be picked up by the electronic leak detector, it may be necessary to carry out excavation work to pinpoint the leak. Sometimes leaks are quieter in plastic piping than in metal. We also do not expect every property owner to have an accurate record of supply pipe routes and any alterations that were made. Water likes to escape out of your pipes in the quickest way it can, which is not always exactly where your leak is. With the technology we use, we won’t be digging up your whole yard. Our goal is to target the cause of your leak, and then work on a solution for you.
