A leak in your pipeline can be tricky to diagnose because they are not normally visible to home and business owners. While slightly lower water pressure may be easy to ignore for a while, it can result in serious repair costs and damage to your property. At J&C Plumbing and Sewer Service Inc., we offer our clients the most modern leak detection services to locate any leaks in your system and repair them before they get out of hand.
Symptoms of Pipe Leaks
Leaks are not only a serious problem because it allows for clean water to become contaminated or waste to be exposed to you and the surrounding environment, but it significantly wastes your money. This is mainly because a lot of these leaks go undetected and unresolved for too long. Here are some of the most common signs that you have a leak in your pipelines:
- Higher water bills
- Your water meter indicates you have a leak
- Mold or mildew on walls
- Musty odor
- Stained or damaged areas around your ceiling or floor
Our Approach to Leak Detection
The best way to locate a leak is to call a professional. Our team at J&C Plumbing has everything you need to find even the smallest leak in your pipelining system.
There are a variety of ways to detect leaks within your New Jersey pipes, but the leak detection service we provide you with heavily depends on the type of property and pipes you have. Leak detection services include: slab leak detection, hydrostatic leak detection, and smoke testing. Each approach offers different benefits that ensure your leaks are quickly found within your pipes, whether they are pinhole leaks or larger areas of the pipe have multiple leaks. When leaks are detected within your system, they will be repaired depending on the severity of your leaks.
Pipe lining is a great way to handle smaller cracks or leaks in your lines and involves coating the interior with resin to create a watertight seal. Once the resin cures, your pipes will be stronger than ever and safe from future leaks or intrusions. The pipe lining process allows our team to create a new pipe inside of your existing one that allows your current system to be easily restored.
If you have a serious crack that is causing major leaking problems in your pipeline, replacing the damaged section may be the best option. Through pipe bursting, we are able to insert a device into your line that will break apart the damaged area and seamlessly replace it with a new one. Bursting does not involve any excavation, and your pipes will be inspected when the process is complete to make sure your pipes are fully functional.
