Why Leaking Pipes Require Immediate Attention
A hidden water line leak can result in more serious—and costly—problems:
- Severely corroded pipes will become blocked, and the rising pressure inside the pipes can cause them to burst unexpectedly.
- Leaks that go unaddressed can result in mold and affect your family’s health.
- If leaks develop in the pipes under your foundation (slab leaks), your property is at risk of significant water and structural damage.
If you think a hidden leak is affecting your home, reach out to our Harrisonburg water leak repair experts for immediate service.
Our Non-Invasive Leak Detection Methods
We will use a digital pipe locator to identify your hidden water lines. Once we know where the pipes are located, we will begin checking for leaks using non-invasive detection equipment.
Acoustic leak detection
This method allows us to locate leaks through sound. We will run the leak detection equipment over concealed pipes to “listen” for any leaking. The site of the leak will emit a louder sound.
We often pair acoustic leak detectors with infrared cameras to provide you with greater accuracy. Infrared cameras help track water movement and water temperatures.
Your Options for Water Leak Repair
Depending on what’s found during the leak detection process and the extent of the problem, we may recommend pipe repair or a full home repipe.
If the problem is isolated to a particular section of your water line, we can simply replace the affected pipe. This provides you with a cost-effective solution that limits work to a single area of your home.
However, if you have older pipes and we have leaks confirmed in multiple locations throughout your home, we may recommend whole-home repiping. This process will replace all of your indoor water supply lines and eliminate leaks for good.
Hidden leaks can cause major water damage if repair is delayed. Contact us today at (540) 271-3393 for immediate water leak detection and repair in Harrisonburg.
