Water Leak Detection Services

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

While some plumbing leaks such as a dripping faucet can be easy to detect others can be hidden from sight in your home’s walls or underground plumbing system.  Maybe you’ve noticed an increase in your water bill and have not experienced an increase in usage.  At Guardian Plumbing of Annapolis, MD we have experienced plumbers and technicians to detect leaks big or small to keep your home’s plumbing working efficiently.

Hidden Leaks

Water leaks can appear around your home in different ways.  Maybe the leak is an obvious running toilet or dripping faucet.  Perhaps your can’t see or hear the leak and it results  in a slightly lower than normal water pressure in the shower.  Your water bill may be  the best way to pinpoint a leak. Unless you have extra people living in the home compared to normal, your water bill tends to stay steady over billing periods. A hidden leak drives the water bill up, along with energy bills if the leaking water is heated.

Common Causes

Obvious leak sources are easy to fix, such as a dripping faucet or running toilet. You may have noticed these problems already. However, leaks also occur in walls and underground. Wall leaks do not necessarily make a wet area on the drywall. Water could leak down into the flooring.  Aging pipes, freezing pipes and tree root are also other possible causes of water leaks.

Solutions for Leaks

Guardian Plumbing can repair your leaking faucet or running toilet with a simple appointment. We also employ high-tech devices to find difficult leaks. Small cameras on extension rods are snaked through the plumbing to find leaks. Depending on the leak’s severity, it is possible to remotely fill it without extensive excavating to reach the pipe. We do our best to find the most cost-effective way to service your leaks.
