We Use Cameras to Detect Leaks
It’s often difficult to notice you have a leak because it is located within your walls or beneath your property. However, at Drain Doctor, we have flexible fiber-optic cameras that we can insert into your pipes via an access point. This camera provides our plumbers with real-time footage so we can efficiently detect the exact location of the leak and come up with the best solution to repair it. Added benefits of using this camera technology include the fact that we don’t have to do any excavation on your property, which keeps your costs low and allows for quicker detection.
Common Causes of Plumbing Leaks
Older pipes are more prone to leaks because the materials weaken over time.
However, other common causes of leaks are:
- Corrosion eating away the surfaces of your current pipes
- Substandard materials prone to deterioration
- Breaking joints and seams due to a poorly installed pipe system
- Tree roots penetrating pipes in search of nourishment
- Excessive or uneven water pressure gushing through the pipes
Water Line Damage
Your water line is the source of all water to your property. Therefore, a buildup of materials due to hard water can lead to a clog, which prevents water flow to your home or business. Additionally, a leak in your water line can lead to disastrous flooding and can even cause health problems due to mold growth. It’s of vital importance that you call a plumber right away if you suspect either a clog or a leak in your water line; the longer you wait, the worse the damage could get, and it could eventually lead to more costly repairs or the need for complete replacement.
Common warning signs that your water lines are damaged include:
- A foul odor emitting from your fixtures
- Frozen pipes
- Slow drainage
- Unusually low water pressure
- The sound of water flowing despite all fixtures being off
