Water Leak Detection Services in Silver Spring, MD & Montgomery County
Water leaks are far and away the most common plumbing problem a homeowner can experience here in Montgomery County. Leaks show up when pipes are fitted together imperfectly, when they suffer damage from external sources, or when they simply wear out after many decades of faithful service. Water leaks aren’t much of a problem, provided you spot them quickly.
But what happens if you have a leak in the crawlspace, or somewhere else that you might not be able to spot right way? Suddenly that little leak is looking like a great big problem.
Luckily, our expert plumbers have an answer for that too. Water leak detection services are the first vital step not only to noticing a water leak, but fixing a leak as well. The plumbers at Mallick Plumbing & Heating use the latest techniques to spot a leak and get things moving in the right direction quickly. Contact us for first-rate water leak detection services in Silver Spring and Montgomery County.
How to Spot a Hidden Leak in Your Plumbing Systems
It’s easy enough to spot a water leak if your shower suddenly drops to a dribble or water is spreading out across your kitchen floor. But what happens if it’s a slow drip inside a wall or underground somewhere?
Water can cause catastrophic damage if you don’t spot it, but there are tricks that don’t involve putting your eyes on the leak. For example, read the meter in your home, then refrain from using any faucets or outlets – even flushing the toilet – for one hour. If your meter still goes up despite that, you’ve got a leak!
Water Leak Detection is the First Step
We wouldn’t be very good plumbers if we couldn’t fix a leak in your Silver Spring home, but it does go a little beyond that. A hidden leak in the walls can result in fishing expeditions from plumbers trying vainly to spot it, and if not conducted by professionals may even cause more damage than it fixes.
At Mallick Plumbing & Heating, we use video camera technology, sonic detectors and other high–end equipment to pinpoint the exact spot of the leak. That lets us take care of repairs quickly and simply, and depending on the extent of the leak, you might also be able to use the rest of your plumbing system as we work. We’re your service contractor of choice and we’ll make sure the job’s done right!
The Best Equipment and the Right Plumbers
Good equipment is vital to proper water leak detection services, but you can’t lean on it as a plumber and expect to get the job done. You have to be able to use the information the equipment gives you to plan for a proper repair job. If it’s a small leak, it might be fixed with just a patch. If it’s caused by excess pressure from a clog, the clog needs to be cleaned or else more leaks will spring up.
Mallick Plumbing & Heating knows that good water leak detection services are just the first step towards correcting the problem, and second–best is never good enough with us. Give us a call today and let us show you what we can do!
