Leak Detection Services
Leaking pipes are never a good thing. However, being able to identify the exact location of a leak is often very difficult. That is why residents in Port St. Lucie rely on Miranda Plumbing & Air Conditioning for proper leak detection. The issue with leaks is that if you leave one unattended over a period of time, it could result in a more serious problem. In fact, if you consider the leak as a clue that there is something happening to your plumbing system, then it should tip you off to have it examined by a professional as soon as possible.
One of the most difficult leaks to locate is one that develops underneath the slab of your home or business. These are called slab leaks and they can cause serious damage to the structure of the building and may even move the foundation if not properly repaired.
How can you determine there is a slab leak in the first place? There are a few signs to tip you off and they include the following:
What Does a Leak Sound Like?
Drip, Drip, Drip
One common sign of a leak is when you can hear running water. What makes this unusual is when the sound of running water can be heard and there are no taps open. This should be an obvious tip off of a problem that exists within your plumbing system.
Whir, Whir, Whir
Another telltale sign of a water leak can be identified if you have a water meter attached to your service. When the meter is moving and recording water usage and all taps are closed, you could have a leak.
Zoom, Zoom, Zoom
If you are a careful observer of your utility bills, if a water leak is present you may see signs of it showing up as extra costs on either or both of your water and electric bills.
Brrr, Brrr, Brrr
The floor of your home or business can help you determine if a leak is present with two simple indicators. If a spot on the floor is warmer than the rest of the floor or if you discover a small pool of water on the floor, you could have a leaking pipe.
Low, Low, Low
If your home or business has typically had a strong water pressure and suddenly you realize that the pressure has reduced over time, this could be telling you something. Low water pressure could be a sign of a leak somewhere in your water system.
