We are often able to locate water leaks with trenchless methods, making the process simple and painless for you.
When to Call For Professional Leak Detection in Las Vegas
Leaks are one of the most common types of plumbing problems and even a seemingly insignificant leak can cause major damage. Unfortunately, it can be difficult for homeowners to detect when and where they have a leak without the proper equipment. If you know what to look for, you may be able to gather enough information to decide whether you should call for Las Vegas leak detection services.
A few signs that you may have a water leak include:
- Visible water damage
- Lower water pressure
- Running water meter
- Condensation on the walls
- Higher than usual water bills
- Musty odors in your home
What is a Slab Leak?
In some areas of the country, homes are built on a large slab of concrete. This slab serves as the foundation and barrier between the house and the ground. Underneath the slab, there are copper pipes. Over time, these pipes may begin to leak. Plumbing professionals refer to this condition as a slab leak, and there are several factors that can cause this.
Causes of slab leaks include:
- Expansion and contraction of copper pipes
- Corrosion of pipes
- Ground shifts causing stress on pipes
- Improper installation
- The passage of time
- The effects of changes in water chemistry on pipes
How To Fix a Slab Leak
A slab leak is not a DIY project. This matter calls for the assistance of a person with specialized knowledge and training. A professional plumber has the tools to perform electronic leak detection. This equipment enables plumbers to listen to the pipes and determine the origin of the leak. Once this information is determined, your Las Vegas leak detection expert can create a plan of action.
Fixing the slab leak depends on the location of the leak. New technological advances enable plumbers to fix the pipe at the point of the leak. Plumbers can also abandon the original pipe and run a new pipe. This latter method is equally beneficial as it keeps the technician from having to tear up the floor.
