As the weather slowly but surely warms across the province, many Ontarians are experiencing leaks within their property as the cool ice thaws. These leaks can cause significant property damage and could potentially be a health hazard for those living within the home. Therefore it’s important to work with professional plumbers to ensure leaks are repaired quickly the first time. In this blog, we’ll look at three techniques the experts use to streamline leak repair projects.
Using Pressure Testing Equipment
Pressure testing equipment is a critical tool within the professional plumber’s armoury. Pressure testing is the foundation to the leak detection process; it can be used to find even the smallest leak within the home and to ensure that any leaks are isolated within that one area of the property. The latest pressure testing equipment offers a level of precision that can significantly shorten the amount of time the plumber spends within the home locating the leak.
Using Snake Cameras
The latest snake camera equipment can be utilized to quickly analyze the conditions within a home’s pipes and prevent a leak before it begins to impact the entire property. The plumber will likely conduct a comprehensive pipe inspection if they suspect a leak within the property and this inspection can also help highlight other potential hazards such as pipe blockages or broken areas of piping. It’s the cutting-edge equipment that is helping homeowners save thousands on repair costs!
Getting Locates for the Property
One of the most important elements of effective leak detection and resolution is ensuring that functioning equipment is not disturbed by maintenance work. Plumbers can streamline the leak repair process and protect the property by working with city officials to get locates for the area. These locates will detail the positions of the main sewer lines and prevent the team from causing any damage to the structure of the home or the local area.
The foundation to a successful leak repair project is cutting-edge equipment and experience reviewing homes for potential leak issues. Plumbers have been trained to recognize the signs and to harness the latest technology to ensure successful repair work. Contact our trusted team today if you suspect a leak within your property.
