Do you suspect that you may have a water leak? A leaking pipe is one of the most common plumbing problems.
Residential and Commercial Leak Detection
Jewell Mechanical offers residential and commercial leak detection services to help find leaks inside or outside your home or business. Unaddressed leaks in pipes or fixtures can lead to high water bills—or worse.
Leaks can cause extensive or catastrophic damage that can cost thousands of dollars to repair. And, since most water leaks occur out of sight, it’s imperative to hire a qualified plumbing contractor that utilizes the latest leak detection technology as well as non-invasive detection methods.
As noted above, the smallest leak can lead to extensive damage that makes a home unliveable. Even a dripping or leaky faucet can waste many gallons of water every day, leading to a dramatically higher water bill. In addition, drips can stain your sink and rust your fixtures.
Common Symptoms of a Water Leak
- The presence of mold or a musty, earthy smell
- Paint that appears damaged or wallpaper that separates from the wall
- Walls, floors or ceilings that are warped, stained or buckling
- Decreased water pressure
- The sound of running or dripping water when no appliances are in use
Possible Consequences of a Water Leak
- Mold or mildew buildup
- Sewer backup
- Property damage due to high water
- High water bills
Similarly, a faulty water line — which brings in water from the city’s supply — can lead to very expensive repairs.
Common Causes of a Damaged Water Line
- Mineral deposits are clogging your line
- The roots of trees have infiltrated your line
- High water pressure has caused your line to fail
