Professional Plumbers Pinpoint Leaks Promptly

leaking-pipeThere are a lot of reasons why you may hire a professional plumber in Springfield, VT.  Maybe you have a ruptured pipe that is spraying water everywhere. Maybe you need a new water heater installed. Whatever plumbing services that you may need, it is obviously going to be in your best interest to schedule those services with skilled, trained professionals—especially if you’re  not even sure what the problem may be or where it might originate. This is often the case with water leaks.

Sure, there are those plumbing leaks that develop in pipes that are exposed and which may even be in your line of vision on a regular basis. The fact is, however, that there is far more to your plumbing system than meets the eye. Because so much of your plumbing is hidden from view, it only makes sense that leaks may develop out of your sight line from time to time. When that happens, you’re going to want to call in the cavalry for professional leak detection services.

How Do Plumbers Find Leaks?

For all our capabilities, the fact is that plumbers are not superheroes. We don’t have some sort of water leak sense that goes off when we’re in the vicinity of a leaky pipe, nor do we have x-ray vision that allows us to spot leaks through building materials. What we do have, however, is years of training and experience that allows us to determine if a leaky pipe is likely, as well as some specialized tools that will help us to pinpoint the source of any leaks in your home.

There are a number of different methods by which professional plumbers may find the spot of a leak. High-tech listening devices are among the best tools available. By using this type of equipment, we are actually able to hear leaks, and we can then fine-tune the instrument in order to zero in on where that leak is exactly.

What Can I Do?

When you call us to your home, you can count on our plumbers to find your leaks. That’s actually kind of the easy part. The harder part for some homeowners is simply realizing that there is a leak to begin with. Fortunately, though not as fortunate as having no leaks, there are plenty of warning signs that can alert you to leaks in your plumbing system.

We recommend, for instance, that you keep a close eye on your water bills, even if you have them paid automatically. Any inexplicable spikes in water consumption and costs could mean that you’re dealing with leaks. Signs of water damage, or even just of water staining, should also be reported immediately. Just because you see water in an area does not mean that the leak is even nearby, remember. Water travels with gravity, so that little pool of water that seems to have come out of thin air may be the result of a leak further in the system that is feeding into it.
