It can be hard to notice a plumbing leak. Leak detection can be even more difficult since dripping water can emerge far from the actual source. Major leaks in your water line or under your basement slab can go undetected even though your water bill is spiking in Boston, MA. Water leak detection and repairs from Blue Bear Plumbing make a big difference, helping to avoid building water damage and wiring corrosion, the first step is to give us a call!
There’s no reason to delay investigating when you suspect a leak in your home’s plumbing. In the past, leak detection involved a lot of cutting through to see where the problem was located. Now, our water leak detection strategies involve technology and are minimally intrusive, so much so that leak detection can be a part of a routine plumbing inspection, especially for older homes.
Typical water leak detection for your home in Boston involves ultrasonic equipment that listens for the sound of even the tiniest leaks, even far down the pipe, and reports the distance to the sound. With pinpoint information in many cases, we can also run video inspection equipment and inspect from the inside.
Signs of water leaks include:
Wallpaper damage or wet spots
Paint damage on walls or ceilings
Musty smells near enclosed spaces
Insects and vermin seeking moisture
Warped wood on floors
There are many causes of pipe leaks in your home, from frozen pipes that crack to pipe wear from touching nearby pipes or brackets. Corrosion can occur inside the pipe over time, or from dissimilar metals touching the pipe and causing an interaction, and be present in multiple locations. Of course, a nail through the wall to hang a picture or other direct damage can start a leak, sometimes obvious but sometimes tiny. Under the house, shifts in the surrounding soil, water table changes and classic New England rock movement in the soil can all damage pipes and cause leaks.
