Plumbing Leak Detection Techniques
Thanks to developments in technology, plumbers have more tools than ever to help them locate and fix water leaks in a home. Here are some of the most common ways to find leaks:
This technique involves using a device to compare the water pressure from a healthy pipe versus that of one suspected of a having leak.
One of the more advanced methods of water leak detection uses infrared cameras to learn the precise location of a leak. The images taken may also help plumbers decide how best to conduct repairs.
Digging and Drilling
If a plumber is confident about the location of a water leak, they can dig and drill into a floor or wall to access the area and expose the pipe.
