How to Check for and Solve Underground Leaks in your Dallas property

For Dallas homeowners, an unsolved underground leak can be costly. A significant amount of water could be wasted as a result of an unfixed leak, but paying higher bills on unused water is just the beginning. It goes without saying that leaks don’t fix themselves, but they can and do worsen over time. An unsolved underground leak could potentially lead to a serious leak crisis down the road, so the best thing you as a property owner can do is seek professional leak detection service whenever a leak underneath the property is suspected.

Although some underground leaks are difficult to detect, there are some signs that you may be dealing with a leak underneath your property. Paying close attention to your water meter and noticing use after not running any water is a good indicator that there is a leak somewhere. It’s also important to check your property for any unexplained damp areas or perhaps even small puddles that never go away. Suspecting a leak is the first step, but the next step will be to actually determine where in the system the leak exists. Unless you have plumbing skills and the necessary equipment, it’s generally best to leave leak detection to the experts who have the equipment and experience needed to quickly and accurately locate where the leak is without digging up the entire property.

Professional Dallas leak detection services can involve a series of tests such as static leak isolation testing and video inspection which will effectively pinpoint the exact location and scope of the leak problem. Once the leak or leaks have been isolated and the situation assessed, then you will be given the options available to solve the leak problem and repair the pipe. Traditional digging and pipe replacement methods exist.

Ultimately, it is in your best interest to solve possible leaks underneath your Dallas property as soon as possible. If you suspect a leak, then it’s important to take the steps needed to find the leak and effectively solve it. If you do suspect a leak and need professional leak detection and repair service, then simply contact DFW Pipe & Plumbing for high quality leak detection and repair service.

Plumbing leaks, drain clogs, and sewer problems are the usual culprits, so it makes sense to know more about how you can best prevent these problems or ensure that these problems don’t get out of hand. The first thing to remember is to fix problem the moment you have a suspicion that a problem exists. Letting a problem linger will only lead to bigger problems and more expensive repair. In the case of leaks, it’s also important to know where the main water shut-off valve is, so you can prevent a flood in the home should there be a burst pipe or other kind of leak that has gotten out of hand.

When it comes to drain clogs, the best thing to do is to try and prevent clogs from forming in the first place. Try to only have water go down your drain as food bits, hair, grease, soap, and other debris can begin to accumulate and create drain clogs.

The right thing to do if you do have a drain clog is to call for professional drain cleaning service that will ensure the drain line gets cleaned out completely and in a safe and effective way.
