Leak Detection

Our Knoxville Plumbers Spot Problems Early!

Leaks can cost you significantly in wasted water, water damage, and increased water bills. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average household can lose up to 10,000 gallons of wasted water every year. This is equivalent to the amount needed to wash 270 loads of laundry. At The Plumbing Authority, we can help you find your home’s leaks and stop them in their tracks. Our high-quality services and professional Knoxville plumbers can help you protect your home and your wallet.

Where Do Leaks Happen?

While a dripping faucet can be an annoying and obvious leak, it frequently isn’t dangerous to your home. Leaks can spring up nearly anywhere, however. A leak under your foundation can cause extensive damage to your home. Plumbing leaks can easily be hidden, but our non-invasive detection procedures and advanced technology let us pinpoint the source. As Knoxville plumbers, we know how to handle leak detection repair, and can help you determine what work needs to be done to remedy the situation.

Common leak areas include:

  • The service line, which runs between your meter or pump and your home. Commonly, your service line runs under your yard or driveway.
  • Slab leaks, when either your hot or cold plumbing line develops a leak where it runs beneath the slab of your home.
  • Inside the walls and floors of your home, where the plumbing passes through.
  • Basements and crawlspaces, which can flood or damage the foundation of your home.
  • Other plumbing systems, such as radiant floor heating, hydronic cooling and heating lines, snow melt systems, and other plumbing systems in your home.

Signs of a Leak in Your Home

Our water leak detection team not only has the professional equipment needed to quickly detect leaks, we also have extensive knowledge and experience in this area. Untreated leaks can damage the structure of your home, cause health problems, and lead to unnecessary repair expenses. They can be difficult to detect, but there are signs you can look for that may signal a leak.

Signs of a leak are:

  • Sound: Do you hear water running when no taps are in use?
  • Mildew: Is mold or mildew appearing? Check dark, warm places like inside cabinets and behind appliances.
  • Foundation cracks: Are there new cracks in the flooring or walls?
  • Wet spots or hot spots: Do your walls, ceiling, or floors have wet spots, discoloration, or hot spots that appear unexpectedly?
  • Water meter or pump changes: Leaks can cause visible changes to your water meter, or cause your well pump to run. If you suspect a leak, turn off all water for a few hours, and check your meter reading before and after the period of time. If the reading has changed, you may have a leak. If you have a well, shut off all water and see if your well pump continues to run, signaling a leak.
