Professional Leak Detection Methods
At Knight Plumbing, Inc., we use a series of leak detection methods. The most popular detection methods include:
- Meter detection: By testing the water pressure in your pipes and comparing it to the water pressure in a healthy pipe, we can determine if there is a leak present.
- Infrared cameras: Using highly specialized infrared cameras, we take photos of your pipes from several directions. This way, we can see exactly where the leak is located and how severe it is.
- Dig and drill: This is the most basic method. It involves digging and drilling into your floor or walls to expose the pipe that is leaking. This method works best if we already have an idea of where the leak is located.
How to Avoid Water Leaks
While some types of leaks are unavoidable, there are several things you should do that will help prevent leaks in your home:
- Use pipe insulation to protect your pipes from cold weather and freezing.
- Never use your pipes to hang things such as clothes or other storage items.
- Make sure all hoses and pipes are not exposed to the outdoors during winter.
- As soon as you notice a leak get it repaired right away, regardless of how small it is.
