A small leak may not seem like a big deal, but as water is wasted, your water bill will continue to rise and the leak can eventually lead to expensive repairs if it worsens. Having your plumbing inspected annually is a good way to check for any hidden leaks that might be in your home. If you’ve noticed a leak has started, getting it repaired quickly can prevent you from having to make more extensive repairs later. Contact The Plumber at (716) 894-4382 today if you need leak detection repairs in Buffalo, NY or Tonawanda, NY.
Traditional leak detection methods required cutting into pipes or digging around on a property to find buried water pipelines. We utilize sewer cameras to check the condition of pipelines without having to damage your property or make a mess.
Knowing when you have a leak is not always simple. There are many pipelines buried in the ground and installed within the walls where you can’t see a visible issue. That is until water starts seeping through the walls or ceiling. There are some early indications of a leak that you can look out for:
- Listen for sounds of running water while all the taps are off in your home
- Compare your water bills side by side every month to check for any unexpected increase in water usage
- Keep an eye on the water pressure and make note of whether it decreases suddenly
If you suspect there might be a leak in your home, get a plumber to come out and inspect the plumbing right away. Leaving a leak will only cost you more in the long run with the wasted water and the damage the leak can cause to your home.
If you notice a leak around the faucet when you turn the water on, or a drip from the faucet when it’s off, you want to have it repaired soon to keep from wasting water and your water bill from going up. Do you have an older faucet that seems to require regular repairs to keep it from leaking? It may be beneficial and more cost effective to replace the fixtures.
