The “drip, drip, drip” of a water leak is more than just annoying. It could be costing you a significant amount of money in wasted water. It could also be damaging your property and causing potential health and environmental issues. Obviously, that dripping needs to be stopped; but how, and where is it even coming from?
Leaky showers are a common problem, and it’s understandable that homeowners might think the problem is being caused by plumbing. Often, the problem is a result of improperly framed and installed shower enclosures or old or faulty grouting. Serious internal water damage as well as mould can be the result of such leaking. Often the damage has already happened by the time the leaking has been discovered to be a chronic problem, and is beyond the homeowner’s ability to repair.
Homeowners can eliminate a good deal of stress by contacting Leon’s Leak Detection when dripping is first noticed. Using state-of-the-art technology like infra-red equipment, our technicians can search for leaking water and its entry points into the home non-invasively. This results in leaks being found more quickly and accurately. It also results in fewer and less extensive repairs to homes, saving homeowners more money.
Water meters are an important device both for recording water use and finding problems within a water main. But these devices take expertise to read correctly and sometimes experience malfunctions themselves. Meters being incorrectly read or in need of recalibration on replacement can cause homeowners’ water bills to be off by hundreds of dollars. There are DIY techniques homeowners can try to read water meters and determine problems themselves. But factors ranging from backed-up sewer lines to the proximity of a neighbour’s home can cause even a well-functioning water meter to register false readings.
Instead, homeowners are advised to call Leon’s Leak Detection for assistance with water meter testing. Our technicians have the expertise and training not only to read this equipment correctly but to use the information obtained to find leaks quickly and limit damage being caused.
While leaks be they water or power may seem more annoying than anything else, they are often the indicator of serious problems. Homeowners should avoid headaches and money loss by contacting us to help locate leaks before that drip becomes a deluge.
