Leak Detection in Dayton, OH
Got a Leak? Get Help from Seiter Services Today
Plumbing leaks are an all-too-common problem with homes everywhere. No plumbing system can fully-contain flowing water under pressure for long, and outside forces can eventually cause wear and tear that contribute to a leak in your lines. Eventually, your plumbing lines wear down and give way, resulting in a leak. Most leaks are not catastrophic and easy to find—the majority are so small and slow that they can be difficult to find for days or even weeks. All the while, wasted water can damage your home and lead to everything from mold and mildew growth to foundation issues. Because every leak should be treated with the utmost urgency, you shouldn’t delay and turn to the team at Seiter Services for a Dayton electronic leak detection service as soon as possible.
What Is Electronic Leak Detection?
If you had full view of a pipe, you could probably see if it is leaking rather easily. However, the majority of the water lines in our homes are not actually visible under normal circumstances. Water lines are hidden in our walls, over our heads, and even beneath the floors under our feet. Finding leaks in these lines can be extremely difficult, and often times they don’t necessarily give you any indication that they might exist until it’s too late. So how can you find a leak if you can’t look for it? This is where professional electronic leak detection comes in.
Seiter Services uses audio leak detection to precisely locate leaks wherever they may be. An audio leak detection service uses an extremely sensitive microphone to identify the extremely subtle sound of a leak wherever one might be hiding. These ultra-sensitive microphones have the ability to pick up on sounds several times weaker than the quietest sound that the human ear can detect unaided, and that makes them capable of picking up on the subtlest sounds of water flowing through a line that might be buried under several inches of wood, insulation, soil, or even concrete.
Electronic leak detection can find leaks in water lines located in:
- Utility rooms
- Living areas
- Irrigation systems
A leak detection service typically involves a thorough inspection of the entire area around your home to look for visible signs of leaking, as well as a check of your lawn to see if there are signs of a problem in your irrigation system. From there, we move into your garage and check any areas water lines might be running through. We then focus on any areas where repairs have been made or new pipes have been run in the slab of your home (a lot of flaws develop due to improper slab leak repairs). Finally, we finish by inspecting indoor plumbing lines, such as those that feed your water-based appliances and those that feed your plumbing fixtures like your bathtub, shower, faucets, and toilets.
