Decatur Water Leak Detection
Unlike burst pipes which are immediately noticeable, hidden leaks can go unnoticed for years, causing extensive water damage and creating an environment conducive to mold and mildew growth. Hidden leaks can also waste thousands of gallons of water a year, and increase your monthly water bills.
When we visit your home, we don’t waste your time with outdated trial-and-error methods of finding leaks. We have access to the latest non-invasive technologies to help you find a leak quickly such as:
- Video camera inspection
- Electronic leak detection
- Thermal imaging
- Pressure testing
Once we determine the source of the leak, we’ll discuss possible options and their associated costs.
Facts About Gas Leaks
Gas can enter your home in many ways including in malfunctioning, or old and broken furnaces, stoves, ovens and other gas-burning appliances. Did you know that gas leaks can also occur outdoors from underground pipes? This commonly occurs when homeowners unwittingly strike a pipe or create enough vibrations to break a pipe while digging a hole in the yard.
A carbon monoxide (CO) detector is an important device to have around the house to protect yourself and your family from carbon monoxide poisoning. Some symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include dizziness, nausea, headaches and shortness of breath. If anyone in your household experiences these symptoms, or if you are concerned about a possible gas leak, evacuate the premises and ventilate your home. Only allow a professional repair technician to fix and inspect your gas lines.
Here are some warning signs that you might have a gas leak:
- Unusual hissing sounds from the gas line.
- Dead or withering plants near a gas line.
- Dirt blowing up from the ground, even on a windless day.
- Ballooning monthly utility bill.
- Low pressure from gas-burning appliances such as stoves and ovens.
Plumb Works Inc uses technology to accurately measure the levels of CO in your household to determine if there are any gas leaks.
