Water lines, regardless of their function, are often taken for granted until something goes wrong. Whether the water line is feeding into a washer or drawing wastewater away, it is part of an efficient plumbing system. There are so many potential ways that water lines can spring a leak.
As one of the most heavily utilized features in residential or commercial premises, water lines handle a lot of strain. Damage can occur due to wear and tear or the failure of another system or structure. For instance, shifting in foundational structures can put pressure on integrated piping. The result is having leaks that infiltrate the slab and could potentially cause serious damage.
Leak Identification & Repair
The first step when dealing with water line replacement is identifying where leaks have occurred. This involves a thorough inspection of the plumbing system to establish whether one or multiple leaks exist. The most common issue encountered in this type of inspection is a lack of access to sections of the plumbing system. At Atlanta Leak Detection, we overcome this hurdle by using state-of-the-art equipment in all our inspections.
A leak in a water line can cause both cosmetic and structural damage. The severity of the leak should not be measured in how many gallons of water are released over any specific period. Even minor leaks can cause cumulative damage that may result in paying out thousands in water line repair and replacement costs. Early detection is the common denominator when it comes to cost-effective water line maintenance. Take care of leaks before they get out of hand, and you won’t have to worry about stretching your finances.
