Leaking pipes are one of the most common plumbing problems, but the issue can be resolved quickly and easily when it is discovered early. If left untreated, a leaking pipe can continue to worsen and cost you money in property damage and high water bills. Our team at The Pipeshark has been bringing quality leak detection and pipe repair to the Philadelphia area for generations.
What causes a leaky pipe?
Even a hairline crack can cause a small but persistent leak. Pipes can become damaged from a wide range of different circumstances, including:
- Corrosion, rust, or other deterioration over time
- Natural settling of the ground
- Added stress on your plumbing system caused by an obstruction
- Invasive tree roots
- Heavy construction nearby
If you hear water running or you find puddles, mold, or water damage around your property, you may have a leaking pipe. Early detection and treatment of a leaky pipe is vital to getting it fixed in a timely manner.
Detecting the Source of Your Leaking Pipe
Leaks can sometimes be hidden in a wall or other concealed area, but there are still a few ways you can try to troubleshoot your leaky pipe. Some obvious signs are dripping faucets, sinks, or other fixtures. However, you can also listen to your water heater or toilet for hissing sounds or other strange noises. If you hear the sound of water running, carefully walk around your property to see if you can identify the area where the sound is coming from.
That being said, we utilize industry-leading leak detection and if you are unable to identify where the leak may be occurring, give us a call and our experienced technician will show up fast and get right to work to minimize property damage.
Leak Detection & Pipe Repairs with The Pipeshark
We offer a variety of leak detection methods based on your unique circumstances. In most cases we are able to use non-invasive detection equipment to avoid damaging your property. After identifying the location and severity of your leak, we will recommend the appropriate repairs.
A leak inevitably means there is damage to your pipe, but in many cases we perform trenchless repairs that will save you time and money. When your pipes are still in relatively good condition except for a small area of damage, pipe lining can fill in areas of damage and help you get the most out of your current plumbing system.
