Tampa Leak Detection
Every year, undetected water leaks cause millions of dollars of damage, including both cosmetic damage and structural damage that can threaten the integrity of walls, roofs and support beams, joists and studs. Why so much costly damage? Becauseundetected plumbing leaks can be small and slow, causing continuous or near-continuous seepage that can wind up soaking your home’s structure for weeks, months – even years – without your knowledge. The only indication you have that anything might be amiss is a higher water bill. Then suddenly, one day, saturation is complete and the leak finally becomes apparent – but by then, the damage has been done.
At Associated Plumbing Inc, we’re a team of Tampa leak detection experts, hunting down even the tiniest leaks that can wreak major damage to your home and wind up adding substantially to your water bill. Our team of licensed plumbing experts knows where plumbing breakdowns are most likely to occur, and they use specialized leak detection methods to find unusual leaks that occur outside the realm of “usual suspects.”
What causes plumbing leaks?
Plumbing leaks can occur for lots of reasons, and while an older home is more likely to have plumbing leaks, that doesn’t mean a recently-constructed home isn’t at risk. Drain clogs from grease, sediment, hair or other debris are a major cause of undetected plumbing leaks, followed closely by wear and tear and just plain breakdown of fixtures, joints and other components. Toilets, sinks and tubs, dishwashers, washing machines, water heaters, ice makers, water softeners and purification systems – they’re all prone to leaks over time. Leak detection is aimed at identifying these and other causes of leaks so they can be corrected or even prevented.
How can I prevent leaks?
As the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” and when it comes to plumbing leaks, that’s certainly true. Scheduling routine inspections of your plumbing is the best way to catch leaks in their earliest stages, or to spot problems that are likely to cause leakage issues in the near future. Our plumbers are experts at spotting early signs of corrosion and fixture fatigue so repairs or replacements can be made before any damage occurs.
