How To Locate a Hidden Water Leak Without Digging Up Your Property

July 24th, 2017

The latest research shows the typical Atlanta home loses between 2,000 and 20,000 gallons of water a year due to leaking pipes and plumbing fixtures. When these undetected or ignored water leaks not only waste water, they waste lots of money and causes a significant amount of damage, that insurance companies don’t usually cover.

The main water supply line coming into your home is often times the culprit of a plumbing leak.  Since it is usually buried 3 feet below the ground, it is difficult for the home owner to even know it is leaking.

This type of leak can quickly lead to structural damage to the home. Be alert to wet soil where the supply line enters the house or if there is water in the meter box. If your water bill is more than you think it should be, contact the professionals at the Leak Doctor.

Instead of digging up your lawn or landscaping, we use specialized equipment.

Ultrasound  Even the smallest water leak makes a sound. Our sensitive ultrasound device can hear at a frequency beyond anything we can hear.

Endoscopic Video  This allows us to see inside your plumbing pipes to detect corrosion, blockage, cracks, and leaks. This takes the guest work out of locating the source of the leak.

Thermography  Allows us to identify the smallest temperature differences, similar to colored infrared photography.

Pipes, faucets, shower heads, and toilet fixtures, don’t last forever. Over time the wear and tear gets the best of them and that’s when they start to leak.

As a homeowner, it is your responsibility to keep up on the maintenance of all these fixtures. That is why most insurance plans don’t cover water leaks and the damages they caused.

To Save Money, Be Proactive

If you suspect a water leak or have older pipes and fixtures, take some time and inspect them.   If you’re not able to locate anything, it may be time to call a professional.

How to Find aWater Leak Without Damaging Your Atlanta Area Home

July 13th, 2017

Most Atlanta area homeowners are unaware they even have a water leak, until it is too late and the damage is done. Whether it is a busted pipe or a pinhole water leak caused by aging pipes, if the source of the leak is not located in a timely manner, the repair cost could be devastating.

1Behind every water leak, no matter how small, lurks other issues such as mold and mildew, without anyone realizing and the consequences can be devastating. That’s where the professionals at the Leak Doctor come in, we find the source of the water leak with minimal disruption to the property.

When water leaks are concerned, it doesn’t take much to disrupt and cause chaos in the family home. Especially when you consider how many water pipes are throughout the home, sinks, toilets, bathtubs, refrigerator, hot water heater, under your home, and out in the yard.

If you notice water damage, you may be tempted to try and locate the leak yourself. Spending a good part of the day tearing into the ceiling where the water stains are just to find those pipes are just fine. Then pulling up the bathroom flooring above the water stain in the ceiling, only to find those pipes are also not leaking. By the time you find the leak and repair the walls, ceiling and the pipes, it would have spent more money and frustration than if you had just called the Leak Doctor.

Water damage can be very misleading, sneaking into the smallest of crevasses and trapping pockets of saturation. Undetected dampness or moisture will continue to cause destruction. Often times this type of issue can only be sensed by sophisticated moisture detection equipment. Our expert team of qualified professionals has the latest training to locate hard to find leaks and we ensure a quick response to emergency situations.

The Leak Doctor offers advanced technology, including frequency sensitive computers, specialized listening equipment, ground probes and other state-of-the-art electronic devices to detect any water leak. We have cost-effective ways to find the source of your leak and quickly fix it.
