Water is a precious resource that costs money to acquire. Certain areas have such an unreliable or low supply of water that some local jurisdictions impose restrictions on everything from car washing to lawn watering to conserve water.
The problem is that not all water is wasted intentionally. Much of what gets wasted tends to be due to underground leaks.
The EPA's WaterSense program published a number of facts on water leaks. The average household loses 10,000 gallons of water each year due to leaks. This amounts to 1 billion gallons of water being lost annually at a national level.
While the problem of underground leaks can be tough to spot, they are simple to fix. You just need to know where to look, which is where our underground leak detection service becomes relevant.
How Do We Detect Leaks?
The first step in our leak detection process is to verify that your property has a water leak. This is most commonly done by looking at your water meter when everything in your home should be off.
The next step is to begin looking at your plumbing section by section. This helps us identify where the leaks are, which in turn makes further location easier.
The last step is to look for signs of leakage near a suspected pipe. Everything from standing water to considerably greener grass can represent signs that an underground leak is present. This step requires our expertise and experience to pinpoint the leak.
What Do We Do When We Find a Leak?
The next step in the process depends entirely upon what you desire to do. Our underground leak repair service is an excellent follow-up to our underground leak location service. We can excavate the pipe, replace or repair it, or replace faulty joints that may have begun leaking as the result of excessive wear or age.
The good news is that fixing the problem is only a fraction of locating it, which is important to remember because accurately locating leaks leads to minimal repair costs.
