• Slow draining pipes
• Backed up drains
• Loss of water pressure
• Higher than average water costs
Slow draining pipes may be caused by blockages, or sediment built up on the interior walls of pipes over a long period of time. On the other hand, they can also be a sign you have a leak in the drain pipes themselves. Leaks remove some of the back pressure in drain pipes, causing them to slow down, and in some cases back up and stop altogether.
A loss in water pressure may also indicate a leak in the incoming pipes. The real issue is locating and repairing the leak itself. For most homeowners, the pipes underground are not accessible. And even if they were easy to get to, the odds are you wouldn't have a clue as to how to properly fix them. In fact, there are many property owners who are not even aware of where the underground pipes are located (other than the fact that they are underground).
Calling in a leak detection Seattle service can help you find the problem, even in pipes under concrete. They use state of the art detection equipment, and can send remote cameras into the actual pipes to see where the problem is and what it may take to resolve it.
Water is a valuable utility, and leaks are responsible for more waste of this resource than most other factors. If you are being charged for your water, it is like seeing your money leeching into the ground through your plumbing system.
What leak detection Seattle services can do for home owners includes:
• Locate any leaks in the incoming water service lines
• Detect underground pipes, even those under pavement or concrete
• Locate leaks in sewer lines
• Find underground utility lines
• Use ground penetrating radar to find all incoming and outgoing lines that exists on the property
Advanced equipment and state of the art electronics have made it much easier for leak detection to be performed. Computerized readouts will identify the problem areas and they may be able to be repaired with little to no digging or damage to the property surrounding the pipes.
For properties that have a private well, pool, or hot tub installed, leak detection Seattle services can map out the lines to these exterior water related structures. The underground installation of the pipes to these structures may not be known to the home owners, and can be mapped out to find leaks and avoid digging them up accidentally.
Leaks from well heads can be expensive when gone undetected. The electricity used to pump the water from the well is wasted along with the water that seeps into the ground. Water pressure suffers, and the bills just get higher. Hiring leak detection Seattle area services with experience and the latest equipment can cut the waste and excessive expenses that you should not have to be paying.
