Identifying Water Leaks
Water leaks aren’t always disastrous for your home. In some cases, they may be due to quite simple problems such as a poorly fitted gasket. However, undetected leaks can be much more serious leading to issues like damage to your foundation. By calling our leak detection experts as soon as you suspect a problem, you can mitigate potentially costly damage. We’ll also ensure that repairs are done right the first time.
Our first step on any leak detection call in Tucson is identifying the source of the leak. Using state-of-the-art equipment, we’ll locate where the water is coming from and what needs to be done to fix it. We’ll always provide written estimates before getting started on repairs.
If we detect a leak under your foundation—otherwise known as a slab leak—we may need to drill into the foundation to make repairs. However, rerouting pipes may be possible. Early leak detection will provide the best possibility for affordable repairs with minimal impact to your home. So, don’t hesitate to call us when you notice any of the signs detailed above.
Expert Leak Detection Tucson Can Trust
In some cases, leaky faucets or dripping pipes are immediately obvious. However, they can also be something of a mystery. You may not notice dripping water in visible areas, but rather you’ll see a spike in your water bills. Alternatively, you might notice bulging or moist feeling drywall or staining on the ceiling or floors. While leak detection may be a challenge for homeowners, it’s a breeze for our friendly Tucson plumbers.
Intelligent Design Plumbing can help you with any plumbing problem—even if you aren’t completely sure where the problem is located. Possible signs of a leak include:
- Slow drains, toilets that won’t flush properly
- Wet spots on the floor or walls
- Sounds of running water when no fixtures are turned on
- Unexplained spike in your water bills
With an undetected leak, you may not only be spending more money on your home’s water needs. You’ll also be using more water than you really need. In Tucson, however, it’s especially important to be diligent with leak detection to conserve our most precious resource. We’ll help you get to the bottom of unexplained leaks as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Leak Detection – Sewer Leaks
Unfortunately, the pipes inside your home aren’t the only place where you need to worry about leaks and cracks. Sewer leaks in your main sewer line may also cause issues with your plumbing. If this is a problem in your home, you might notice all of your drains running slower than usual. Foul odors are also possible. When sewer leaks and other damage to your sewer line is suspected, we’ll use a special camera to view the line without doing any digging to access it. If roots, soil erosion, and other issues have caused damage, we’ll perform trenchless sewer repairs to resolve the problem.
Gas Leaks – Do Plumbers Fix Gas Leaks?
Natural gas piping is a lot like your normal plumbing. However, a natural gas leak can be much more dangerous. Natural gas leaks increase the risk of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning. If you suspect a leak, call us for gas line repair in Tucson.
You will likely notice a gas leak due to a sulfuric odor that is often described like rotten eggs. This odor is added to natural gas as a safety measure, since the gas is otherwise undetectable to the senses. Intelligent Design Plumbing has the necessary equipment to pinpoint and repair gas line leaks so that your home is safe and sound. We also provide services at condors and apartment buildings.
