A leaking water pipe behind your walls is often difficult to notice. A leak can go on for months or years without detection. Some customers don’t realize they have this problem until significant damage has occurred, such as burst pipes.

At Relentless Home Services we encourage customers to be proactive when it comes to their plumbing system. Know the warning signs of problems, particularly hidden water leaks, so you can avoid significant damage to your property.

We provide professional water leak detection for Burleson homes and businesses. Our experts will carry out thorough inspections to pinpoint affected areas and make sure the leak is properly fixed.

Signs You Have a Hidden Water Leak

  • Do you constantly hear water running through your pipes, or is the water meter always running—even though there are no faucets turned on?

  • Do you see bumpy areas or “bubbles” on your wallpaper?

  • Are there wet or discolored spots on the ceiling?

  • Is mold or mildew developing on walls, ceilings, or flooring?

  • Did your water bill go up unexpectedly? Has it gradually been increasing?

  • Do parts of your floor feel damp? Is it sagging?

These are all common signs that point to leaks in your water line. If you notice any of these issues in your home or business, contact our Burleson leak detection experts as soon as possible for the right solution.

Our Leak Detection Methods

Leak detection can be approached in several ways. Here are three common leak detection methods we perform:

  • Acoustic leak detection – With this approach, we listen for sounds in your pipeline. The affected area will produce the loudest sound; this is where we will focus our attention.

  • Infrared camera detection – This is often used to complement acoustic devices. Infrared cameras help us track water movement and water temperatures.

  • Tracer gas – If your pipes are difficult to locate due to depth, tracer gas is an effective alternative approach. Nitrogen and hydrogen is inserted into the pipe; where the gas escapes is the location of the leak. Tracer gas is safe and nonflammable.

Why Leaking Water Pipes Need to Be Fixed ASAP

Leaking pipes may seem minor at first. Most leaks are minimal and don’t pose immediate water damage. However, prolonging the problem may lead to significant damage in the long run.

  • If the pipe is corroded, it can burst at any moment and flood your property.

  • Slab leaks (which involve leaking water lines under the foundation) can result in both water and structural damage.

  • Leaks that have gone on long enough will lead to mold and mildew growth, creating health problems.

  • Steady leaking will continue to waste gallons of water and increase your water bill.

This is why we recommend alerting your plumber to a leaking water pipe as soon as you notice the problem. We can quickly locate the leak and recommend pipe repair or repiping.
