How Professionals Carry Out Water Leak Detection

Water leaks can be spotted relatively easily. They generally leave behind water stains on the walls, and can sometimes also cause flooding. They can leave your entire landscape wet and soggy. However, some leaks aren’t as noticeable as others, particularly in the early stages, as the damage is minimal.


A sudden rise in your water bill is often the only sign of a water leak. Call Everlast Plumbing for water leak detection if the consumption of your water hasn’t changed, and yet you receive a very high bill.


Causes of Water Leaks


Many issues can result in water leakage. Plumbing systems today are incredibly resilient and durable, which is why they don’t get damaged that easily. However, this is one of the main reasons why people never suspect issues can occur until they do. Here are a few of the most common causes of water leaks:


  • Pipes either corrode, crack or even rust over time. These issues can cause massive leaks in metal pipes.


  • The shift in the soil and the earth’s pressure can lead to cracking or breaking of plumbing lines and joints. In most cases, incorrect grading in outdoor areas is the primary reason for this is.


  • Leaks are pretty common in outdated and old plumbing systems. Consider replacing them as soon as possible if you have the opportunity and budget.


  • Excavation and repairs can lead to significant leaks as well. If plumbing contractors are not careful while carrying out jobs, they can accidentally damage the pipes.


How Do Professionals Locate Leaks?


Some water leaks are incredibly easy to spot, and you should call skilled and experienced Sydney plumbers to address these without any delay. However, if all you have is a high water bill, how can you decide whether you have a leak or not? Here are a few tips that can prove to be useful:


  • Search for the water meter on your property.


  • Locate the main shut-off valve that controls the water supply from the mainline to your house.


  • After you’ve located these plumbing fixtures, turn off all taps and other water-consuming appliances.


  • Wait for about 30 minutes and take another reading. If you notice a rise in the meter reading, you definitely have a leak in your plumbing system or even in an underground installation.


  • Turn off the main valve again and note down the reading on the meter. If the meter reading stops, it means that the leak is located inside your house. However, if the meter count rises, it means that the leak is under the ground.


Tools Used in Water Leak Detection


Locating the exact spot of the leak is the next step. Professionals use a variety of water leak detection tools, such as:


  • Pressure testing equipment
  • Acoustic noise detection
  • Dye testing
  • Nitrogen gas testing
  • Thermal imaging
