Does Your Orlando Home Have An Undetected Water or Plumbing Leak?

Do you know how many pipes are underneath your Central Florida home or business? From the pipes that bring fresh water into your building (both hot and cold), to those pipes that take waste and sewer water out of the building, there are on average 500 feet of piping in the average home. 

As pipes age, they succumb to a number of things:

Clogged lines

Corrosion

Excess water pressure

Loose water connectors

Rapid temperature changes 

There are several signs you may have a water leak underground

High water bill

Your typical monthly water should stay about the same amount. It is easy to go online and look at previous water bills. If you notice any type of increase, there is a good chance you have a leak. 

Low water pressure 

When pipes start to erode, become clogged or rupture, it can create low water pressure. To put it to the test, turn on the shower, then flush the toilet, if you notice a change in the water running in the shower, you may have a leak. 

Bulges or cracks in the pavement or driveway

This can indicate a pipe has cracked or ruptured. Potholes or depressions in your yard. This can be potentially dangerous and should be taken seriously. A hole in the ground can mean there is a cracked pipe. 

Wet, warm, or cracks in the foundation 

A broken or cracked pipe under the foundation causes warm or even wet areas on the flooring. If not caught in time it can weaken the foundation. 

Unpleasant smell

If waste water is leaking, the pipes have a pinhole leak or if there is a blockage, it definitely needs to be checked out. 

Underground water leaks are nothing to mess around with, the earlier it is detected and repaired, the less damage it will cause, and cost less money to repair. 

The Leak Doctor uses the latest technology to locate underground water leaks without digging up the ground or flooring. This in itself will save a ton time and money.
