Expert In-Home Water Leak Detection Services.
Water leaks may seem like a common occurrence, with many homeowners familiar with the stress of dripping taps. However, not all leaks are so obvious. Sometimes a leak in a plumbing line under the slab or other hidden areas can go unnoticed until it has caused serious damage. If you believe your home has a leak, contact our skilled technicians at Al Marino Inc.
With our technicians receiving comprehensive training and education, we are specialists at targeting leaks that happen underground or in other hidden locations.
Common Areas Include
- The service line from your meter or pump to your home. This line typically runs under your yard, driveway and other exterior areas.
- A slab leak occurs when a leak develops in either your hot or cold water plumbing line beneath the slab of your home.
- Leaks can develop in the plumbing inside your walls and/or floors.
- Crawl spaces and basement flooding damage by a leak in your plumbing lines.
- Miscellaneous plumbing systems such as radiant floor heating, hydronic lines for heating or cooling, snow melt systems, plumbing for ice rinks, etc., can all develop leaks that can cause serious property damage.
Signs You Have a Water Leak in Your Home
Leaks that go untreated can cause structural damage, health issues, unnecessary costs, and more. Outside of the obvious dripping faucet, most leaks are hard to detect.
Here are some signs to look out for:
- Sound – Do you hear water running even when no water is being used?
- Mildew – Is mildew appearing?
- Higher water bill – Do you notice your water bill going up, without actually using more water?
- Foundation cracks – Are there cracks forming in your walls or flooring?
- Wet spots or hot spots – Are there any wet spots, discolored spots or hot spots on your floor or walls that appeared unexpectedly?
- Water meter or pump changes – Your water meter or your pump can help determine if you have a leak. If you have a meter, check your meter. Wait an hour or two without using any water and check the meter again. If the reading changed, it can mean that you have a leak. If you use well water and have a pump, listen to hear if it is running when no water is being used. If it is, then you probably have a leak.
Natural Gas Leak Protection
Natural gas is a relatively safe, efficient, and convenient source of energy for your home, however, it must be properly installed and maintained. Otherwise you risk getting a gas leak that can become a health risk and source of danger in your home.
Sewer Gas Leak Protection
Sewer gas is a common byproduct of our modern septic systems. Leaks, cracks, or other blockages in the plumbing can cause sewer gasses to leak into your home. Symptoms of exposure to sewer gas can be mild and will go away after exposure ends but if you are experiencing symptoms of high-level exposure, seek emergency medical help right away!
