Plumbing Leak Detection Services in New York City

Leak Detection Specialists to the Rescue

Water leaks happen more often than homeowners would like to admit. Unfortunately, they can be deceptively elusive– at once noticeable and yet also difficult to detect. It is not uncommon for a leak to transpire deep down in the plumbing line – underground, in the basement, or beneath the concrete slab. A leak in one of these hard-to-reach areas can remain unnoticed for months, even years, despite causing significant damage.

Telltale Signs of a Property Leak

Don’t take any chances when dealing with a potential leak. Untreated leaks can lead to:

  • Mold damage - Mold is a type of fungi that thrives in humid environments. When mold spores come into contact with water, they quickly start to grow and multiply.
  • Water damage - If left unchecked, a leak can quickly lead to water damage. As water seeps into drywall, flooring, and insulation, it can cause these materials to swell and warp.
  • Structural damage - Water that seeps into cracks in walls or floors can freeze and expand, causing the crack to widen. As the crack grows, it puts pressure on the surrounding materials, which can eventually lead to structural instability.
  • Health issues - Mold and mildew can grow in damp areas, leading to numerous health problems. Within 48 hours, mold can form a colony that can release millions of spores into the air. These spores can cause respiratory problems, trigger allergies, and even cause infections. In severe cases, mold exposure can be deadly.
  • Skyrocketing water bills - Water leaks can be expensive. A leaky faucet can waste as much as 3,000 gallons of water per year. A broken pipe can cause hundreds of gallons of water to be wasted in a single day.
  • Unnecessary costs - A leak, no matter how small can be costly. payments for repairs, replacement parts, mold removal, and possible medical bills can quickly add up.
  • And more - Leaks can have major consequences if it's left unchecked. Homeowners should take any potential leaks seriously and call a professional as soon as possible to have the problem repaired.

How to Tell if You Have a Water Leak Underground

There are two types of underground leaks when it comes to how it affects you: slab leaks and leaks under the rest of your property. If the leak is located under your lawn, you’ll probably notice general signs of a leak (such as decreased water pressure or increased water bill) and at least one of these signs:

  • Sinkholes or potholes
  • Air bubbles or dirt in your tap water
  • Puddling water or mud not related to rainfall
  • Suddenly cracking pavement
  • Water flooding into the street in front of your home (can also be caused by a leak in the main line)

Who to Call For an Underground Water Leak

Who you call for your known or suspected leak depends on its location. For slab leaks and leaks on your property, you’ll want to call a plumber. For leaks that you suspect to be from the main water line or out on the road in front of your home, report to the water department.

Unfortunately, most leaks are hard to detect. American Leak Detection of New York is proud to be your local solution. There’s a good reason we have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau: Our tools and techniques take the guesswork out of leak destruction.
