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, although in some cases it is possible to solve leaks and prevent future leaks from occurring using minimally-invasive ‘no dig’ Cast in Place Pipe (CIPP) solutions. This ‘trenchless technology’ is effective, affordable, and a great solution for property owners as there is no digging or cutting required.
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.

Paying Attention to Dallas Plumbing Maintenance Leads to Big Saving Over Time
How often do you think about your plumbing? Chances are that it’s not very much- and this is a big mistake. Not thinking about your plumbing can and will cost you big time. In fact, not knowing how to perform basic plumbing maintenance is a solid recipe for paying out a considerable amount of cash over time on repairs. You can avoid costly repairs though, and enjoy a plumbing system that’s in great shape by learning some basic maintenance and knowing what to do in case of suspected plumbing problems.
There’s no question that some Dallas homeowners are paying more than is necessary for their water usage and all thanks to small plumbing leaks. Part of saving a great deal of your hard-earned money over time is recognizing when you have a leak somewhere in your plumbing. It’s a really good idea to make a conscious effort to check for leaks. Noticing unusual moisture or puddles forming around your property is a tell-tale sign that you have a leak. If you notice your water bill increasing and you haven’t used any more water than is normal, then it’s also likely that you have a leak that needs to be taken care of. Maintaining a sound plumbing system and saving money will involve identifying plumbing issues such as leaks as soon as possible before they end up costing you more money.
Although some plumbing problems can be difficult to identify, it’s possible that you will need to deal with a large leak (or flood) in the future. So it’s a great idea to be prepared for such occasions by knowing where and how to shut off water to appliances such as the sink or even the main water supply shut-off valve in case of a serious flood. Being prepared for such emergencies will save you not only in terms of money, but also in terms of mental and emotional anguish as you will know exactly what to do if disaster strikes.
Now is also a great time to learn how to fix small problems, such as clogs. Purchasing a few tools from the hardware store, such as a sewer snake or high quality plunger will save you money, time, and headaches, and will also make you feel great that you can take care of a few plumbing issues on your own.
But what happens if you’ve encountered or suspect a leak or are experiencing another plumbing issue that you can’t solve?
