Why We Recommend Getting Leaks Fixed ASAP
Don’t think a little dripping won’t do any harm. A leaking pipe is not the same as a leaking faucet. Hidden water leaks can create serious damage in your home—and your wallet.
- Leaks that result in burst pipes can flood your home
- Growth of mold and mildew can affect your family’s health
- Sewer line leaks can damage the integrity of your home’s foundation
- Wastewater can pool around your yard and create unsanitary conditions
- A tremendous amount of water is wasted, leading to higher water bills
If you suspect a leak behind your walls or underneath your home, it’s time to call your Manhattan leak detection experts.
What Happens During Leak Detection
In order to repair the damaged pipe, we need to locate the source of the problem. This is achieved through leak detection equipment using various technologies.
These are some of the methods we use for leak detection:
Infrared cameras: This is helpful for identifying water movement and determining the water temperature. While infrared technology will not pinpoint the exact location of a leak, it is an effective companion to other equipment such as acoustic leak detectors.
Acoustic leak detectors: Locating leaks by sound? Acoustic technology is actually a more accurate method of pinpointing leaks. Sensors capture any sound within the pipes. The leak is found wherever the noise is loudest.
Gas tracers: This method is used when acoustic equipment is unable to detect the leak (often due to an extensive and deep pipe or in areas with loud background noise such as industrial sites). First a mix of hydrogen and nitrogen is fed into the pipe; then a special sensor traces the gas as it escapes out of the leak. The gas is non-toxic and poses no harm to your potable water system.
Taylor Group takes your safety seriously. We only use non-invasive leak detection methods. Once we have located the leak, we will discuss your options for pipe repair or replacement.
