Water Leak Detection in Semmes, AL

Avoid Water Damage with Leak Detection and Repair

Numerous Semmes, AL homeowners are familiar with spotting and repairing simple water leaks like leaking faucets, but not every leak is so visible. The extensive web of pipes running in your floors and walls to supply hot and cold water has intentionally been concealed from homeowners. But in the event that a leak occurs, identifying and rectifying the source incredibly tough.

Luckily, Semmes Plumbing Services has extensive experience with leak detection. Water leak identification might be tricky since water doesn’t remain stationary. Because water can quickly travel along walls and baseboards, under flooring and down vertical pipes, finding where a leak originates might be far from the resulting water damage. Therefore, water leak identification typically requires an experienced plumber.

These leaks are often hard to detect independently, since they manifest underground and may not exhibit obvious indicators such as visible water damage. Our experts uses advanced tools like acoustic listening equipment, thermal imaging cameras, and ground penetrating radar to pinpoint the exact location of the leak, thereby reducing the need for unnecessary excavation and ultimately saving you both time and money.

Are There Different Types of Leaks?

Leaks of water are extremely difficult to locate since there are numerous potential sources from which they may originate. An experienced plumber is skilled to examine each of these common leak sources:

  • The plumbing system within your walls and floors
  • The pipeline connecting the meter to your property (usually situated beneath your yard)
  • Pipes in the slab
  • Vulnerable leak areas such as basements or crawl spaces
Since these potential points of origin can be difficult to access, we suggest Semmes, AL homeowners delay allowing a plumber inspect them. A licensed plumber can verify your safety and that the proper methods for locating and rectifying a leak are implemented.

Experience Reliable Slab Leak Detection and Repair Services

Leakages under the concrete slab foundation of your home, referred to as slab leaks, occur when your plumbing system develops leaks. If this slab becomes damaged, it may weaken the structural integrity of your entire house. Excess pressure serves as the first potential cause of a slab leak, which can lead to cracked underground pipes. It's typical for pipes underground to be under heavy pressure, which makes them prone to cracking. In areas with clay soil, the risk of slab leaks is even greater, as clay soils expand when wet and shrink after drying, exerting pressure on the pipes.

Additionally, earthquakes can exert pressure on the pipes, potentially resulting in slab leaks. Underground pipes have direct contact with the soil and all the metals present in it. Galvanic corrosion, resulting from this metal contact, can lead to a hole in your pipe, resulting in a leak.

When water flows through the pipes, it causes them to vibrate. In cases where the pipe is located adjacent to a hard surface like gravel, another pipe, or concrete, the metal can erode at the spot where it contacts the solid surface.
