Water Leak Detection And Prevention

by | Jul 28, 2022 | Water Pipe Repair

Water Leak Detection And PreventionWater leaks can cause a lot of damage to your home, so it’s important to prevent and detect them as soon as possible. There are a few different ways that you can go about doing this. One way to detect water leaks is to have a professional come and inspect your home for them. This is usually the most reliable way to find leaks, as they will be able to identify problem areas and potential sources of leaks. The team at Dan’s Plumbing and Septic is experienced in leak detection and can help you get to the bottom of your water leak problem! A leak in your home is very serious.

Common Places Where Leaks Occur

Pipes can leak for several reasons; being corroded, damaged, or blocked. One of the most common places that a leak occurs is at the seals around appliances (where they connect to water hoses). If these seals are not properly maintained, they can allow water to leak into the home. Since they are often in hidden places, the leaks can go on for a long time before they are detected. Leaks can be found at sinks, toilets, washing machines, beneath water heaters, and sump pumps.

Visual Inspection Of These Areas In Your Home Maintenance Routine

Because your plumbing system is not attractive, it is kept out of sight. As a result, homeowners easily forget about their pipes until something goes wrong. Once a year, it is important to do a visual inspection of all exposed plumbing in your home. This can be done by yourself, or you can hire a professional to do it for you. Either way, it is important to look for any signs of leaks, such as water stains on walls or ceilings, or pooling water around fixtures.

Invest In Preventative Measures

Along with a visual inspection, there are a few things that you can do to help prevent water leaks from happening in the first place:

Smart water leak detectors: Installed by a professional and will automatically alert you with an alarm and a smartphone notification when a leak is detected.
Auto shut-off valves: In the event of a leak, this will quickly and easily shut off the water supply by closing the valve.
Drain pans: These pans will allow the water to drain out of the tank in the event of a leak.

"I have managed a mobile home park since 1988 in Anoka County. Dans Sewer Service was one of the first companies I ordered after I found how unreliable the past service was. Dans has been under contract with me ever since and has pumped our sludge tank, repaired sewer lines, cleaned out manholes, maintained sewer stacks on empty lots and has always found the time to "come when called". I highly recommend Dans Sewer Service to any commercial or private property."
